The 'Guinness World Records: At Your Fingertips Lite' iPad app allows you to zoom in the pictures, dig up facts on the person, place or thing, and even watch the specific event if it was recorded. Talk about visual learning!
There's a little bit of give-and-take for this app. With the actual hard-copy book of the Guinness World Records, you get the pop-up pictures. With the Guinness World Records: At Your Fingertips Lite app for the iPad, though, you don’t. But hey, at least you get videos--pop-up pictures are so last decade!
