In a previous blog entry I mentioned a new iPhone and Blackberry app that gives you info on IBM Storage.
I actually now have three IBM supplied iPhone apps that you can get through the Apple Store.
The dW app is a social networking app
that lets you interact with your contacts on the
IBM developerWorks website.
I didn't realize that IBM effectively had its own
Social Networking site..... but that's exactly
what the developerWorks site is!
For more information, check out the October 13
developerWorks Podcast, available here.
There is more information here.
The IBM Storage and IBM System x iPhone apps are very similar in design and layout.
They both list product types by family, giving specifications for each machine type.
For example these are the specifications listed for the Storwize V7000.
For each product you also get a Description page and Web link pages.
You also get links to Facebook, Youtube,Twitter, LinkedIn and other contacts.
There are still some areas where things can be improved.
Not all of the products have their specifications listed yet.
They instead direct you to the web.
Never the less I think this is a great start. It shows IBM's commitment to both Social Media
and being as informative open and communicative with our customers as possible.
As for Android users, we are listening...
Expect an Android version hopefully before the end of the year.
Oh.... and to find these apps... just open the Apple iStore and search for IBM.
