In line with its mission to encourage lifelong learning among people, has just launched its official app for iPhone, simply called Curious for iPhone.

Like the official Curious app for iPad, which was released last August, Curious for iPhone offers easy access to short-format video-based interactive lessons across a variety of topics.

With Curious for iPhone, you can browse the available lessons and enroll in the ones that are of interest to you. Thereafter, you can learn about new things wherever you are, in your own time.

Designed specifically for the eponymous device, Curious for iPhone allows lessons to be viewed in portrait mode with access to supplemental information, including images, files, and links. It also allows for landscape viewing for full-screen high-quality video.

Curious for iPhone also works with’s LearnSync feature, which syncs lesson positions across devices, enabling you to pick up exactly where you left off.

Alongside the release of Curious for iPhone, has just released a new Pocket Perfect collection, which features …

… lessons that learners can enjoy when they have a few extra minutes during the day and want to do more than feed their Candy Crush or Facebook addictions. Pocket Perfect lessons provide a “healthy learning snack” in those situations: learners can brush up on casual French or Italian greetings, demystify the world of wine, or even discover the hidden meaning of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Curious for the iPhone offers thousands of lessons to make you smarter and more skilled while you are on the go.

Curious for iPhone is available now in the App Store for free. It’s optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later.
