iResearch – the AIP iPhone app

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) has a developed a new iPhone and iPod touch application called iResearch. You can use iResearch to browse through AIP journals from anywhere.

Princeton and PPPL employees can also set up an account to download articles and read them off-line using the iPhone wireless network or a non-Princeton wi-fi connection. To do this users must first create a free AIP user account and password using a computer accessing the internet from within the Princeton (or PPPL) network.

To save an article to be viewed later (can be viewed off-line), navigate to the article and touch the Save Locally button in the lower right hand corner of the screen. To access articles later, from the iResearch home page, touch the My Articles button.

iResearch is free and is available in the iTunes store. For more information visit: http://scitation.aip.org/iphone

Fully adopting these technologies could lower projected U.S. energy use 17 percent to 20 percent by 2020, and 25 percent to 31 percent by 2030.
