From the announcement:
United Nations Publications announced today the release of the UN e-book applications for iPhone and e-books for Amazon’s Kindle which give users easy access to offline reading and reference on global issues. The first UN publications available as iPhone applications, or ‘apps’, are UN flagship titles such as The Charter of the United Nations, The United Nations Today, and Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Available for a nominal fee at the App Store, UN e-book apps allow users to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch user interface.
Features of the UN e-book apps include:
- Simple and clean user interface,
- Full-text search across the text,
- Intuitive navigation to different parts of the book,
- Linking to other UN titles.
BTW, you can also get the ebooks on the UN website. Some are rather expensive, though.
