We recently launched an iPad/iPhone app for Discover PLUS! You can download the app here. The app is a companion to the browser version of Discover PLUS and allows you to download content so you can view it when you’re offline, as well as take notes, bookmark, and highlight text, all of which will sync up to your work on the browser. It also features the same robust search capabilities that we offer on the browser version, so you can get to the exact content that you need.
