This week we went live with a mobile app for the iPhone, something we did in partnership with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce and a vendor they’re using based in Minnesota. The app’s available for iPhone, Blackberry or Droid. It lists profiles of all the chamber members; we were able to go in and dress ours up with some images and a detailed profile, possibly one of the first to do so in our area. Get info on the app.
Bigger moves to mobile are on the horizon; we’re working to develop an app version of our health site, www.utmbhealth.com. That’s scheduled to be ready early in 2011. If you read Wired magazine, you saw this month’s article on how web usage is changing. Our only option is to change with it, to go where our customers, students, patients are going to be.
