SA+P news digest goes mobile

School of Architecture + Planning unveils new app for smartphones and digital tablets


With the most recent issue of its news digest PLAN, the School of Architecture + Planning is introducing the option of reading its news on the go, using your smartphone and/or digital tablet. The mobile app, developed by SMArchS candidate Laia Mogas-Soldevila and Jorge Duro-Royo, partners in Dumo Lab*, will resize and adapt the content and layout automatically to suit the device you're using.

You have the choice to browse high-res PDFs of the paper format or you can view all the stories in reconfigured HTML format, which allows you to filter the stories by issue number and/or division (Architecture, Planning, Media Lab, Real Estate, ACT or SA+P). In both cases, you can zoom in for greater image detail and larger font size and follow interactive links to further information.

The HTML format also features mobile-friendly slideshows of every story's related images and the capability to move from one story to another with a simple swipe of the finger. Both the PDF and HTML formats feature easy access to the MIT and SA+P websites and to their online collections of videos.

You can download the mobile app from the SA+P website or from the Apple App Store.
