The American Institute of CPAs has debuted a new eReader app for the iPhone and iPad to provide accountants with auditing and accounting eBooks.

The AICPA Reader is available as a free download from the Apple App Store, and allows CPAs to build a portable library of the content on professional accounting and auditing topics. The growing list of eBooks from the AICPA includes audit and accounting guides, audit risk alerts, guidance for management accounting and practice management, and many other titles.   

“Our new app makes it easier than ever for CPAs to have instant access to the best resources in the profession,” said AICPA vice president of publications Linda Cohen.

The AICPA Reader interface helps users navigate through the AICPA’s eBook collections. Users can create bookmarks, search for keywords, and annotate text.
To order eBooks from the AICPA Online Store,, users first must download Adobe Digital Editions, a free digital rights management program, to their PC or Mac. eBook titles can be authorized for use on up to six devices, including laptops, desktops, eReaders, smartphones and tablets.

Once downloaded, publications can be transferred directly to an iPad or iPhone through the AICPA Reader app by tapping the “Import eBooks” button and signing in with a user’s existing AICPA or CPA2Biz log-in information. A list of previous eBook purchases will appear, and individual titles can be tapped to add them to the device.

AICPA Reader is the latest app developed by the AICPA’s technology subsidiary, CPA2Biz. Other recently launched apps include the Journal of Accountancy News App for iPad, the CPA Exam Aid planning tool, and a number of conference-related apps.
