Library introduces mobile app

The next time you head to the Ballard library, you can now use a free mobile app to reserve books.  The Seattle Public Library app features the system’s catalog and other online services. The app, called SPL Mobile, is powered by Boopsie.

Enhanced features of the mobile app include smart prefix searching to obtain search results faster with just the first few letters of a word or phrase. For example, entering “ha pot g” into the search box finds “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”  You can find information on downloading the app here.

I love this app. I stop at the library when I am out and about and this helps me keep track of whether or not I have something waiting for me. So cool!

I think it’s quite buggy. I use the library a lot, but their website doesn’t function great on an iPhone, but it’s still better than this app.
