Columbia University Press announces The Columbia World of Quotations: the first iPhone® application to be developed from one of its books. The application was developed by Netframes, a multimedia and software developer specializing in educational and informative technology.
Available immediately, The Columbia World of Quotations features 65,000 quotations by more than 5,000 authors covering 3,000 years—from Bella Abzug to Frank Zappa and Galileo to Themistocles. The application is based on an expanded and updated version of Columbia University Press’s book The Columbia Dictionary of Quotations, which is considered a classic and authoritative reference work and has been continually revised since its original publication more than fifteen years ago.
The Columbia World of Quotations is the largest searchable database of quotations available as an iPhone® application, providing its users with easy navigation and search capabilities. Users can search for quotations in the application by author or speaker’s name, by subject, words within quotations, exact phrase, nationality, occupation, birth date and century. Any or all of these categories can be selected for search criteria. The iPhone® application also allows users to create lists of favorites, e-mail quotes or just browse at random through the world of quotations.
The Columbia World of Quotations can be found on iTunes® here.
