Ahead of this year's Burns night, the Scottish Government has released a Burns app for the iPhone. As well as including more than 550 of the Bard's poems and love songs, the app gives users a useful Scots glossary, a full guide to hosting a Burns supper, a biography and a timeline of Burns's life.




Scotland's culture minister, Fiona Hyslop, said:




This app will appeal to existing admirers of Burns and make his poetry available to a whole new audience. It is a great platform to promote his work on the international stage.”




Download the app for free from the iTunes app store.
