XBRL US is working on applications for Apple’s iPhone and newly release iPad. The goal is to demonstrate the power of XBRL in a simple and accessible way, said XBRL US President and Chief Executive Mark Bolgiano.

“Our goal is to facilitate the use of XBRL through multiple channels,” added Campbell Pryde, chief standards officer, “and to make it possible for people to see the benefits of XBRL firsthand—and by easy, convenient and familiar means.”

In June, XBRL will “crowd-source” the design and features of the applications using the platform it has used to develop US GAAP, mutual fund risk-return and credit ratings taxonomies for the Securities and Exchange Commission.
