Vendor Mobile Apps are Here: but are they any good?

Inspired by the always-on-top-of-tech Bill Drew at the TC3 library, who has been working a lot with this stuff, I scouted out the available mobile applications for databases that my own library subscribes to or uses (there are certainly others out there):

Database apps:
  1. Annual Reviews
  2. Gale
  3. ScienceDirect: Android, iPhone, Blackberry
  4. WorldCat

Not apps per se, but mobile versions of library resources/tools:

My hope is to follow up this brief post in a few weeks once I've had a chance to actually take a look at these apps and mobile versions in detail and get feedback from library colleagues. If you have thoughts or reviews, please share them in the comments section!
