MAKE CPH "Mobile Ready" With a Home Screen App
Crain’s Petrophysical Handbook is now "Mobile Friendly". The website has been updated to improve viewing and navigation on mobile devices (smart phones, tablets) as well as desktop computers and laptops with a narrower viewing area.

The website adapts its layout to the viewing area by changing the left and right navigation panes into pull down menus, altering page scrolling behavior, as well as scaling images down when appropriate.

To make it easier to take advantage of these advancements, you may want to create “Crain’s Petrophysical Handbook App” on your device so you can access the handbook with the touch of a finger! Select the instructions below that are most appropriate for your device:
