Encyclopedia Britannica iPhone app — Free*, the way we like it


From idownloadblog.com



A month after it pulled out of print, Encyclopedia Britannica hits iOS


Fortunately, fans can sigh a collective breath of relief as Encyclopedia Britannica goes digital, releasing their inaugural app for the iOS platform.

The interface will look familiar to anyone who interacted with digital newspapers and magazines on an iOS device. Although the focus is on text, content presentation takes advantage of photographs, diagrams and charts to help convey information.

The app is a free download from the App Store, *but only some content is provided free of charge. For unlimited access, you'll have to subscribe in-app for a $1.99 monthly subscription, which is half of the cost of an online subscription.

The 40.5MB universal binary runs natively on both the iPhone and iPad.

A version for Google's Android operating system is launching later this year.


Fair warning: there goes the rest of your life.
