Encyclopaedia Britannica Launches App for Windows 8

The Encyclopaedia Britannica App, now available in the Windows Store, provides access to the entire encyclopedia with a sleek and engaging interface, rich illustrations, and special features such as Link Map, a graphical browser that connects interrelated articles in a fun and interactive way. This new digital version of the encyclopedia, the latest in a long line the publisher has created over the past two decades, exemplifies the direction the company is taking today,” says Britannica senior vice president Gregory Barlow. “We’re mobile, we’re digital and we’re making knowledge available to people whenever and wherever they need it.”

The Britannica app is free to download from the Windows Store. Free content includes 100 top articles and engaging special features such as This Day in History. Access to the full contents of the encyclopedia is available for $14.99 (U.S.) annually.

Britannica created the first digital encyclopedia in 1981, the first multimedia encyclopedia in 1989, and the first encyclopedia on the internet in 1994. Today’s Britannica, which is available in a variety of digital forms, is updated continuously, every day. More about the Encyclopaedia Britannica App is available here. Britannica subsidiary Merriam-Webster, Inc. also released its dictionary app for Windows 8.
