Look up AP Style on your iPhone

Ever wish you could look up Associated Press style for "district attorney" (lowercase unless it's used as a title in front of a name) or "Green Revolution" (uppercase) when you're away from your trusty stylebook?

Now you can. The Associated Press has just launched an AP Style app for the iPhone and iPod touch.

The 2009 AP Stylebook app is available for $28.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at That's about $10 more than the print version. (AP members and college students can get the spiral bound edition for $11.75). It’s also slightly more than the $25 annual online subscription to the Stylebook.

Is it worth it? Check it out and tell me by leaving a comment here.
