‘Atlas Shrugged’ Released As App

Just in time for the GOP presidential campaign season, Ayn Rand‘s controversial text Atlas Shrugged is now available as an interactive iPad app from the Penguin Group.

The digital adaptation of the philosophic text of “Objectivism,” includes scans of the original manuscript pages and author’s notes, and video and audio excerpts from Rand’s lectures.

Penguin has been making their mark this year by creating interactive eBook apps for classic books. They are the publisher behind Jack Kerouac‘s On the Road app and Wreck This App, the digital version of Keri Smith’s bestselling Wreck This Journal. The Rand app is $14.99 (less than the $16.99 Kerouac app, more than the $7.99 Smith app).

The Penguin Atlas Shrugged app will compete with another interactive adaptation of the text from Blackstone Audio, which is available in iTunes for $16.99.
