iPad app for classical texts

Postby James Spinti » May 7th, 2012, 5:22 pm

From the Classics list:
I'm delighted to announce the release of an iPad app for intro and intermediate Greek readers. Its name is Attikos includes a selection of familiar texts, including morphological information. The author is Josh Day, himself recently an intermediate Greek student.

Link to the app store:

Writing the app would not have been nearly as feasible without the Perseus Project's policy of making its data available to third parties. It includes links to logeion.uchicago.edu, which is an interface for dictionaries and reference works, including Liddell and Scott. When not connected the internet, the app itself offers short definitions, as familiar from Perseus.

Texts include the Iliad, some Lysias and Plato, and the Antigone. Some texts have been parsed completely; no translations are included, however. Bonus features allow the user to look up morphological parses of words they type in, or figure them out with the included morphological charts.

For those who have only an iPhone, I just discovered "Ancient Greek", which has an 116000-entry LSJ, including English-to-Greek searches, and a good selection of Greek classical texts, some of which also have English translations.
The Canadian link is http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/ancient- ... 33342?mt=8
