  1. Add built-in function to close/exit BrowZine on smartphone

    There isn't currently a built-in function to close/exit the BrowZine app on a smartphone. As a work around, I had to restart my device. It is easy to see how such a feature would be very useful.

      BrowZine is designed to be available for the user whenever they need it, so there is not a function to “close/exit” the app on mobile devices. If this is something you do want to do on a regular basis however, I would encourage you to look at our instructions for cold starting the app which should achieve much the same effect without needing to restart your device:

      Thanks!

        • Synchronize PDFs in Saved Articles across devices.

          I find selecting PDFs for later reading on an iPhone quite doable, but when I want to read them on the ipad or PC; I have to duplicate that chore. Ideally, Saved articles and later the Reading List on the PC would sync.

          • Error alerts/log for library

            If a user encounters an error such as "Full Text Failure - Your institution does not have access to this title. Please see your library for assistance", chances are they won't contact the library. It would be great if there was an option for the library to somehow be able to access a log or alert that these errors are occurring, so then we may properly update our holdings

            • Please expand usage statistics with an overview of registered users/accounts per institution

              We would like to know how many persons (staff and students) of our institution downloaded BrowZine and created an account.

                • Allow users to simultaneously access multiple institutions' resources.

                  Our faculty members are affiliated with multiple institutions and find the process of signing in and out cumbersome. They would like to be able to access all of the content they are entitled to access, regardless of which institution provides the access.

                        • Automatically launch VPN App if needed by BrowZine

                          Some institutions require VPN apps to use BrowZine such as Cisco's AnyConnect or Junos Pulse. Automatically launching these services when required would streamline BrowZine use while off-site for these institutions.

                          • Include dates of coverage for publications

                            On the list of covered publications at http://support.thirdiron.com/knowledgebase/articles/132654-what-publishers-do-you-support would you include dates of coverage? If this requires a more comprehensive list of specific titles for each publisher so much the better (but sorry for the extra work :-) )

                            • WebDAV support for Zotero

                              Currently BrowZine only supports saving PDFs directly to Zotero's servers. Zotero features a capability to save to WebDAV services instead, but this is not currently supported in BrowZine. Add support so that a user could put in their personal WebDAV credentials and save PDFs there instead of at Zotero's servers.

                              • Show article file size

                                Could the pdf article file be size be shown? It will help users decide whether to download when they are using mobile data internet. Some article file sizes could be really huge and one wouldn't know until the article has been clicked and the download process has started.

                                    • Add a desktop version of Browzine.

                                      A desktop version of Browzine that would work much like the mobile interface, but through a normal desktop computer.

                                      • Enhance marketing widget to allow for a custom set of library-selected titles to be rotated

                                        To add to the existing automatically selected "top journals" in various areas, provide the library with the ability to hand-build the list of top journals to be used on specific subject guide pages.

                                          The marketing widget is being updated now to link specifically into BrowZIne for the web at ANY taxonomy level. This should allow some great flexibility, but at the same time we have opted for this approach rather than a system whereby you can create completely custom groupings on journals. Hopefully the linking into BZ Web for “instant gratification” of being able to access these titles makes up for this change of direction! Look for the new widget to be available starting the week of July 20.
