One of the mainstay sources of famous quotations has long been the Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, but with its eighteenth edition, a digital facelift was in order. While the much-loved and revered print edition is still the definitive guide, the Bartlett’s app, available from iTunes for $3.99, is still filled with over 2,500 quotes from modern day notable people, in addition to the more than 20,000 historical quotes that Bartlett’s is known for compiling.
In addition to the quotes, the app allows users to share apps via their social networking sites, take photos through the Quoto feature in order to create backgrounds behind meaningful quotations for sharing, and more.
The Bartlett’s website explains the draw of both the print and digital editions of quotation references:
“More than 150 years after its original publication, Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations has been completely revised and updated for its 18th edition. With thousands of new quotes chosen for their literary power, intellectual and historical significance, originality, and timelessness, Bartlett’s is a more valuable resource than ever before for the lover of language and literature.”
