Stephen Hawking’s Snapshots of the Universe is an app that teaches users about the principles that control our universe. It covers a variety of things – including why planets stay in orbit, why stars aren’t always located where we think they are, and how our understanding has evolved over time. It also covers topics like black holes, time, and gravity. The app is now available to purchase for $4.99.

“This app provides a great opportunity to introduce Professor Hawking’s teachings to a whole new audience, through an entirely new medium,” said Scott Shannon in a press release, the Senior Vice President and Publisher of Digital Content at Random House. “We are very proud to continue our publishing tradition with Professor Hawking, now across more platforms than ever.”


Mastering the Art of French Cooking: Selected Recipes reduces its price to $1.99, originally $4.99, in celebration of Julia Child’s 101st birthday. Happy Birthday! This low price is only available for an extremely limited time: ending this Sunday, August 18th.

The app features 32 recipes from “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”, color photographes of each finished dish, 30 clips from Julia Child’s “The Way to Cook” videos, and much more.

“’Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ remains one of the seminal cookbooks of all time,” said Tony Chirico, President of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, in a press release. “Our goal was to make this standard work available to the growing generation of mobile and tablet readers. It’s hard to improve on a classic, but with the updates we’ve added, readers will feel as if Julia is with them in the kitchen. And who could be better company?”
