CliffsNotes-To-Go App Series Grows to 36 Titles in the App Store
Modality and Wiley Publishing, Inc., Build on Success of Mobile Literature Notes to Bring More
Interactive Study Guides to iPhone® and iPod touch®
Durham, NC.(Vocus) March 9, 2010 -- Modality, Inc., and Wiley Publishing, Inc., today announced that 31 more
CliffsNotes® literature study guide applications are available in the Apple App Store. Selected in September 2009
as part of Apple’s App Store “High School Survival Guide,” the CliffsNotes-To-Go series delivers interactive
review tools and self-assessment quizzes for success-minded students.
Students can begin to explore the CliffsNotes-To-Go series by downloading CliffsNotes Romeo and Juliet for
iPhone® and iPod touch® - available for free download from now until March 15.
Modality’s content architects created two distinct review modes to allow for a more customizable study
experience. A prescriptive “Cram Plan,” created by the experts at CliffsNotes, orders the content of the app to
maximize even small increments of study time. A more traditional e-reader interface presents the app’s complete
content in a fashion similar to that of the printed literature notes. Additional features that leverage the innovative
Multi-Touch user interface and revolutionary capabilities of iPhone and iPod touch include:
* Multiple-choice quiz assesses mastery of the material
* Text-highlighting notes important sections for further review
* Interactive map links character associations and profiles for quick reference
* Audio plot summaries play in the background while the user engages with other app features
“Early sales and user reviews of the CliffsNotes-To-Go apps demonstrate that students appreciate having this
material on their iPhones and iPod touches,” said Cindy Kitchel, vice president and publisher, Wiley
Professional/Trade publishing. “Students turn to the Cliffs brand when they need clear, reliable review materials.
We’re excited to be working with Modality to deliver that content in an enga
