Encyclopaedia Britannica iPad App Now Available

College students (and curious minds) who own an iPad are in lucky today as Encyclopaedia Britannica has announced that it has released the iPad version of its popular Encyclopaedia Britannica application onto Apple’s iOS App Store.

For those that don’t like spending money on software, there is a free version of the application which will give users complimentary high-resolution images and maps. However, the free version has an article threshold of 100. Once you go beyond that, you’ll have to rely on only being able to view the first 100 words of every single article in the database.


There is another option though should you choose to fork over a little cash.

You can pay $1.99 per month which will net you the more than 80,000 articles in the software’s database. They are fully searchable and you can save them for offline viewing, send or save the articles or mark them as favorites.


If you currently are the owner of an EB.com account, you can just download the app and use it free of charge just by logging in.


You can find it on the iOS App Store for download right here.
