WorldCat and the iPhone

September 16th, 2008 by Jim

My long-time colleague, Bruce Washburn, won’t brag about it but I will. He took advantage of the WorldCat Search API to build a very nice WorldCat app for the iPhone. He’s talked about (and Lorcan noted) how designing for mobile devices is like writing a haiku – you have to figure out the essence and then feature it in the most intuitive and expressive way. I think his app captures the real essence and utility of WorldCat.

    Hi there,

    I searched for this app and couldn’t find it.

    It’s at: http://www.apple.com/webapps/searchtools/worldcat.html

    A search for WorldCat from the search box on the site should take you right to it!
