For both these presentations, it's not so much about showing off the WorldCat Mobile pilot--as much as we like it--but it's really set up to share what we've learned about people trying to find library materials on the mobile platform. What works, what doesn't, what the motivations might be for using a mobile device over a large-screen one and how do we take that into the user experience, etc.
Speaking of the WorldCat Mobile pilot, there have now been more than 17,500 downloads of the WorldCat Mobile pilot app (or accesses of the Web "lite" version, if your phone does not support downloads.)
If you live in Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, UK or US and haven't downloaded the WorldCat Mobile pilot app and tried it out yet, there's no time like the present. Even with the latest enhancements like more images and improved relevancy rankings, we would still like to hear your ideas of how to make it better, faster, smarter, snappier and in general--more useful for you.
