[prMac.com] Redondo Beach, CA - InterLingua Educational Publishing is pleased to learn that its EngLits iPhone/iPod Touch app has been named a "Best iPhone App" by eight prominent technology and education websites in 2009. EngLits are detailed 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.
There are over 70 titles in the collection, which were selected to cover the gamut of required reading, so students will find EngLits helpful with term papers and exams.
The eight websites that acknowledged the EngLits content include:
* One of 100 Awesome iPhone Apps to Work and Study from the Beach (Online College Reviews)
* One of the Top 20 iPhone Apps for Overwhelmed Students (Phlebotomy Technician Schools)
* A Best iPhone App (Best Iphone Apps Review)
* A Best App (App Beacon)
* One of the Best 100 iPhone/iPod Apps for Educators (iPhonelk)
* One of the Top 50 iPhone Apps for Educators (Online Education Databasse)
* One of the 100 Apps for Tech-Savvy Teachers (Rasmussen College)
* One of the 100 Best iPhone Apps for Personal Development (Job Profiles)
"Obviously, we're quite pleased," says Jack Bernstein, Publisher of InterLingua. "With a hundred thousand apps out there, it's nice to be recognized, especially by so many prominent websites in different fields. We put a lot of time and effort into the EngLits app to make it a valuable tool for students and I'm glad that so many people noticed."
