NEW YORK – July 26, 2012 – ACM’s flagship publication Communications of the ACM, the monthly magazine that delivers leading-edge content to the worldwide computing community, is now accessible as an easy-to-use mobile application for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.  These new downloadable apps enable ACM’s more than 100,000 members to access CACM’s information, insights, and ideas from distinguished columnists and industry luminaries in computing and information technology in a new way.  They also offer personalized tools for sharing, searching, and storing important news stories anytime, anywhere.

“In this competitive global environment, CACM is a must-read for serious computing professionals,” said Scott E. Delman, director of group publishing for ACM. “Mobile access  provides a convenient way to track breaking news, emerging technology challenges, peer-reviewed research, and opinions and viewpoints from this generation’s most significant computing and technology leaders and innovators. It also provides a critical outlet for researchers and practitioners to showcase their work.”

The CACM mobile apps also feature:

  • Touch screen navigation to find articles
  • Article sharing with friends and colleagues via email, text messaging, and social networking
  • Searches of the entire CACM archive, dating back to 1958, by keyword, author or title
