My first stylebook is digital
I have a confession. I didn’t own an AP Stylebook until today.
The AP released an AP Stylebook app for the iPhone this morning with a basic set of features that will make it a must for the mobile journalist of our time.
The app itself is broken into easily accessible categories like all, main, business, sports and punctuation. Each of these are searchable, a history is created of the items you view, you can mark items as a favorite, and you can add notes to each item. Custom entries can also be created that’ll allow you to keep your organizations own style guides with you all the time.
The only setting available now is the ability to change the font size.
The app costs $28.99, more than the print or Web editions, but it’s more portable and easier to use so I think it’s worth it. If you buy the 2009 edition they’re giving you the 2010 edition for free.
