HighWire Press Celebrates Its 1000th App

From HighWire Press

HighWire Press recently announced the launch of its one thousandth mobile website.”This product was designed with users in mind, to better serve their mobile workflows.”

The latest mobile site to launch on HighWire is the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, a publication of the American Thoracic Society. When a reader uses their smartphone device – iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, or BlackBerry – to access any of the ATS journals (AJRCCM as well as the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology and the Proceedings of the American Thoracic Society), they are automatically directed to the mobile-optimized version of the site.

“Our members are delighted at the release of the mobile version of the AJRCCM site,” said Diane Gern, Publisher at the American Thoracic Society. “Mobile websites allow our users to access content quickly and easily. The HighWire solution improves the user experience for our constituents.”
