RNMobile works on both the iOS and Android platforms. Own an iPhone or iPad? You're covered. Own a Samsung, HTC, Sony or LG smartphone running Android? Not a problem. Don't have either? Take a look at RNWeb.
RNMobile (and RNWeb) pull all the content from online, ensuring that the content is new and easily updated so you don't have to be.

RNMobile makes use of different modes of conveying knowledge, providing a more nuanced insight into a history that doesn't get sufficiently represented in documents such as our textbooks (Smith, Ng-A-Fook, Berry & Spence, 2011).
