Brian Cox Wonders of the Universe app

March 29, 2012

Brian Cox – who has brought astronomy to a new audience with his TV shows in recent times – has launched an iPad app.

The app, branded Brian Cox’s Wonders of the Universe, is by book publisher HarperCollins which struck a deal with the BBC to include footage from Cox’s TV shows Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe. Developed by digital agency The Other Media, the app also draws on the full text and photos used in HarperCollins’ official tie-in books for those series, as well as infographics and 3D models of planets, moons and galaxies.

The app, which is only compatible with 2nd and 3rd generation iPads, has launched at a promotional price of £4.99.
