Making College Students’ Lives Easier: Questia Launches Free iPad App to Help Write Research Papers

Questia’s Trusted Online Research, Including its Plethora of Sources and Tools, Now Available to Students On the Go

Chicago, Ill., Jan. 26, 2012 —On the heels of its successful free iPhone and iPod touch app that helps college students write better research papers faster, Questia has released the universal version that now includes the iPad app, making Questia’s vast online library and research tools accessible on all iOS devices. When Questia introduced the Questia Library app for iPhone and iPod touch last year, thousands of downloads took place and positive feedback from students poured in, but one question resonated loudly: What about the iPad? On an iPad, students enjoy a better reading experience with its larger screen which is why Questia listened, and delivered the new Questia Library iPad app by popular demand.

Questia (, the premier online research tool for students, saves students valuable time on research papers and projects. With Questia, students can accurately cite sources, format papers in seven different styles, and organize their notes, research and sources all in one place. Librarians have specially selected Questia’s 77,000 academic books and 4 million journal articles—many of which are peer-reviewed. Since Questia is accessible 24/7, students can research any time of day from anywhere, with the confidence that they’re using credible content from trustworthy sources.

The free Questia Library app, which is now compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, gives anyone access to read more than 5,000 free books. When Questia members download the app, they gain full mobile access to Questia for as long as their accounts remain active, at no additional cost. Members can now get the complete Questia experience from the convenience of their iPads. They can search and read from Questia’s entire collection, organize research, manage saved projects, and access Questia’s powerful tools for automatically creating citations, footnotes, and bibliographies.

With mobile usage ranking highest among the college demographic, Questia has further enhanced how students are able to access their Questia accounts and research on the go. The free Questia Library iPad app is now available for download in the iTunes store.
