Amphetamobile Develops AMMO RACK App for SciVerse Applications

Researchers to save and organize content for mobile use with document management app

Amsterdam, December 15, 2011 – Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of the AMMO RACK app on SciVerse Applications. Developed by mobile platform developer Amphetamobile (AMMO), the application enables users to save PDFs of interest in SciVerse for further organization and consumption on their mobile devices.

Using the AMMO RACK app, researchers can store SciVerse article PDFs to an online AMMO RACK cloud storage account and then direct these articles to a complementary document management app for the iPad, iPod or iPhone. Once downloaded to the AMMO RACK app, users can easily sort, assign, read and annotate their documents, whether online or offline.

“SciVerse Applications provides a unique opportunity for us to help researchers pull content deeper into their mobile workflows, providing them with the ability to not only store and view PDFs from SciVerse, but also organize and manage them along with other documents on their mobile devices,” said SiNae Pitts, PhD, CEO of Amphetamobile. “AMMO RACK empowers users to access and consume the content they need more freely and keeps them informed and productive, even when they are offline and on the go.

“We are committed to partnering with organizations that leverage their expertise and technologies in order to develop innovative applications for enhancing the workflow experience of researchers,” said Rafael Sidi, Vice President, Application Marketplace and Developer Network at Elsevier. “Our work with Amphetamobile is an excellent example of the meaningful collaboration that we continuously seek to foster within the scientific community.”

SciVerse Applications and the Developer Network provide opportunities for researchers and librarians to collaborate with developers in creating and promoting new applications that improve research workflows. The Developer Network features a growing community of application developers that gain potential recognition, prestige and revenue through their contributions to SciVerse Applications.
