Thanks to a new MobileMatch app, helping the Northern New Mexico community has become even easier for the over 3,000 Los Alamos National Laboratory employees and retirees who contribute their time, talent, and energy to community efforts through the Laboratory’s Vecinos Volunteer Program. The volunteers can now search, sign up, and track their volunteer hours on the go and don’t even have to download the app because the Lab’s own LANLVolunteerMatch website automatically recognizes mobile devices.

The MobileMatch app is part of a larger Lab effort to go mobile. While most of the new apps are Lab-specific, a few also are of interest to the wider community. The already published Safety Cinema app, for example, is designed to help broad audiences stay safe at work and home. The Safety Cinema’s iOS version is available through Apple’s iTunes App Store, the Android version through the Google Play Store.

The Woman Computers of Project Y app gives users first-hand experience in how production lines of Los Alamos women functioned as the “computers” of the 1940s. Using the mechanical Marchant calculator, the Project Y women worked around the clock running computational simulations and calculations for the Manhattan Project. The Project Y’s iOS version can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes App Store and the Android version from the Google Play Store.

College and post-doc students not already employed at Los Alamos will be able to use the Los Alamos Students app, scheduled for release later this month, as an exciting introduction to working at the Lab.
