VitalSource Technologies released the VitalSource Bookshelf app for Apple's iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch mobile devices. With the addition of the app to VitalSource's line of products and services, faculty and students can now access their content through mobile devices in addition to methods such as integrated downloads. When using the app, the full e-textbook, student notes, and highlights are downloaded directly to the mobile device, negating the need to be connected to the internet in order to access previously used content. The app is free for download in Apple's App Store.
The VitalSource Bookshelf app supports the full VitalSource library of titles, encompassing 60,000 works from publishers such as Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and Oxford University Press.
