LINCOLN UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES ‘READ LINCOLN’ MOBILE APP FOR ALUMNI MAGAZINE AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA – As part of the Go Paperless Initiative, Lincoln University’s Office of Communications and Public Relations announces the creation and launch of its READ LINCOLN Mobile App, which includes the LINCOLN LION, its biannual alumni magazine, and later, the quarterly, Lincoln Review newsletter as well as its subsequent publications.

The mobile app, which is compatible with IPhone and Android smart phones, was created for the university by Global Design Interactive, featuring the newly-redesigned 32-page alumni magazine with the initial install.

“While some may opt for a print version, the creation of the READ LINCOLN Mobile App offers an environmentally-conscious and convenient option to access our publications,” said Eric Christopher Webb, Lincoln’s Director of Communications and Public Relations.  “But for the most part, it provides a greater opportunity to expose others outside the Lincoln University community to the achievements and contributions of our alumni, students and faculty that continues to advance our legacy of excellence.”

To install the mobile app, open the web browser on your smart phone or tablet and type in the following link: http://gdiconnect.com/Clients/lincolnlion

When it opens a browser window on your phone, then click the square box with the arrow coming out or ‘+’.  It will bring up a list of options, click on the Add to Home Screen, and it will create an app button on your screen where there is free space.

  • Bookmark the page you want to add to a Home screen
