Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc. announced today its encyclopedia is now available as an iPad App through the Apple App Store.  

Users have two choices to access the app.  The first choice is available for free and gives users complimentary high-resolution images, maps, access to 100 free articles plus the first 100 words of every article, and the Britannica “link map.”  The second choice, for $1.99 a month, allows iPad users to access every article in the Encyclopaedia, including more than 80,000 articles, the ability to download information to read offline, save and send articles, store favorites and search history and more. iPhone, Android and Microsoft versions of the app are expected to follow before early 2012.
