[prMac.com] Redondo Beach, CA - InterLingua Educational Publishing is pleased to learn that its EngLits iPhone/iPod Touch app has been named one of the "100 Best iPhone Apps for Personal Development" by Job Profiles. EngLits are detail audio/text summaries of great literature by Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen, Hawthorne, Bronte, and other authors that can be played and read on an iPhone/iPod Touch.
Written by university professors and recorded by professional actors, EngLits tell the full story of the book or drama, including all characters and events that are important. The shortest EngLit is 21 minutes of audio and 10 pages of text (Romeo & Juliet), and the longest is over four hours of audio and 73 pages of text (Middlemarch). By formatting the summaries for iPhone/iPod Touch, listeners can "study" while riding on the bus, jogging, biking, lounging, and even walking the dog.
"Obviously, we're quite pleased," says Jack Bernstein, President of InterLingua. "With thousands of apps out there, it's nice to be recognized, especially by such a noteworthy organization as Job Profiles."
Job Profiles helps guide people into the careers that are most appropriate for them by providing the information users need to make the right decisions.
