7000+ College Textbooks on Your iPhone

CourseSmart, an eTextbook provider, is making its 7,000-plus titles accessible on the iPhone and iPod touch.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the new application will be free for subscribers and will let students access their full electronic textbooks, read their digital notes and search for specific words and phrases.

"Nobody is going to use their iPhone to do their homework, but this does provide real mobile learning," said Frank Lyman, CourseSmart's executive vice president. "If you're in a study group and you have a question, you can immediately access your text."

Typically students rent a book for 180 days. It costs about 50% of the retail price for a physical book; however, when the subscription expires, they lose access to the title.

The new applications will let students:
- Access eTextbooks when connected to the internet
- Scan for photographs, tables, graphs, and charts
- Skim thumbnails or access full pages
- Use as a quick reference during class
- View your notes during an open book exam
- Find what you need using keyword search
- Experience a true digital equivalent of your textbook
