APT Offers Mobile-Enabled Website

Smartphone users can now get Alabama Public Television (APT) program schedules and information literally in the palms of their hands. Last week, APT launched a new smart-phone-friendly site called APT Mobile that is designed specifically for smaller, handheld devices that offer most of the same information found on its Website. Visitors to APT’s Website ( can get a feel for the new tool by scrolling down on its home page and clicking on “APT Mobile.” Smart phone users who input into their phone browser will be given an automatic prompt to choose between APT Mobile and the regular Web site. Once the choice is made, the user has the option to switch back, although the mobile-enhanced Website makes it easier to check program schedules, watch APT and PBS videos, pledge support and see the latest APT news. The APT mobile web application is free to use and has received nearly 1,000 visitors since its soft launch last week. APT anticipates that number to increase dramatically over the next month.
