The Associated Press yesterday announced that the 2009 AP Stylebook would be available as an application for iPhone and iPod touch.
The AP Stylebook app, which helps journalists with a range of queries from grammar, punctuation and spelling, to briefings on media law, snippets of information on various topics and specific sport and business terminology- is now available via the App Store.
"AP Stylebook fans have been asking for a mobile application so they can have style guidance wherever they go," said Colleen Newvine, who manages the AP Stylebook product group. "Journalists never know when they will need to run out the door to chase a story, so as long as they have an iPhone in their pockets when they go, the Stylebook can go with them."
The 2009 AP Stylebook app costs $28.99 and annual releases for the application are set to coincide with the release dates for the Stylebook print edition.
