BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - August 30, 2013) - Today, Boundless announces that its digital textbook alternatives are now available as an app for iPad -- offering students a tremendous opportunity to save money on books while using their favorite mobile devices. Earlier this month, Boundless introduced brand new, premium textbook alternatives that include Boundless Learning Technology. Now, these custom, chapter-by-chapter textbook alignments are available on iPad for just $19.99 per book, a tremendous savings compared to the traditional textbooks assigned to college students.
What makes Boundless different than a typical eTextbook? Boundless Learning Technology. Premium Boundless books include quizzes, flashcards, summarization and other adaptive study tools that prompt students to remember important information at optimal times during their reading. Boundless developed this technology in-house after analyzing how students used their textbook alternatives for more than a year.
"Students no longer have to put up with paying upwards of $200 for a textbook; with Boundless, they can access comparable books on their iPad at a fraction of the cost," said Boundless CEO Ariel Diaz. "Boundless' goal is to get students quality information on any of the devices they use to study. The new iPad app gives students a great way to access Boundless' textbook alternatives on the go."
iPad users can access free content in any of Boundless' subjects and can upgrade to premium textbooks that align to their assigned readings and come with built-in learning technology for only $19.99 per book. Boundless offers content in more than 20 subjects, including new subjects like Statistics, Calculus and Physics. Each subject has free books, plus many premium options available for in-app purchase. These new books are created by professors and subject matter experts, mined from the best resources available online. Boundless premium textbooks can be used as replacements for, or supplements to, a student's assigned book.
Boundless is making education more accessible and affordable. Boundless is building an innovative learning platform that curates the world's best open educational content in more than 20 subjects and delivers interactive learning tools to college students. Students at thousands of colleges are ditching expensive textbooks and discovering Boundless Learning Technologies that go way beyond traditional books. Boundless textbooks are available for free and premium across multiple channels, including mobile, website and iBooks. Learn more at www.boundless.com.
