The Open Culture iPhone App

Wel­come to Open Cul­ture, where you’ll find the best free edu­ca­tion­al media on the web. We invite you to explore our dai­ly blog and media col­lec­tions. You can also now access our new iPhone app (devel­oped gen­er­ous­ly by Fred Hsu) that gives you mobile access to our edu­ca­tion­al audio and video col­lec­tions. It’s all free, and now you can learn while you’re on the move. With this app, you can access:

  • Free Audio Books
  • Free Uni­ver­si­ty Cours­es
  • Free For­eign Lan­guage Lessons
  • Ideas & Cul­ture Pod­casts
  • Music Pod­casts (Clas­si­cal, Jazz, Rock)
  • Sci­ence Pod­casts
  • Uni­ver­si­ty Pod­casts
  • Intel­li­gent YouTube Videos
  • Dai­ly Blog Posts from

All media files open in native iPhone soft­ware — iTunes, Safari, the YouTube play­er, etc.

Impor­tant Note: To down­load the media, you will need access to Wi-Fi (per Apple’s require­ment). We would sug­gest ful­ly down­load­ing the file before leav­ing your Wi-Fi spot.

If you have feed­back for improv­ing the app (whether big or small), we def­i­nite­ly want to hear them. Feel free to email us at
