British Library Launches iOS and Android Apps for Upcoming Exhibition
In an effort that seems designed to reach modern smartphone users, British Library is launching mobile apps for iOS and Android devices for the upcoming exhibition. Titled “Royal Manuscripts: The Genius of Illumination,” it shows illuminated manuscripts collected by the kings and queens of England between the 9th and 16th centuries.
The regular “offline exhibition” opens on November 11th and until then iOS apps are discounted — not sure why the Android version didn’t receive the same treatment, though.
