Description:

The NIOSH mobile Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (mNPG) is a specialized web site that uses HTML5 and advanced JavaScript to enable native app like functionality in a downloadable app that works offline. Containing a database of 634 chemicals common in industry, the mNPG allows users to search by chemical trade names and synonyms, CAS Numbers, US Department of Transportation Numbers and RTECS numbers assisted by an advanced "type ahead" feature. Users can also save a list of frequently referenced chemicals, and choose which data about a given chemical is displayed - particularly useful with mobile devices. The app is downloaded and updated directly from NIOSH and not any app store. In the first three months of dissemination, this app outperformed all other NIOSH apps for the first six months of release and proved the viability of making a web app perform like a native app.
