The Associated Press Stylebook app offers current style guidance as you write or edit in Word.

AP Stylebook Online takes everything you love about the Stylebook -- A-Z guide to usage, spelling and punctuation -- and makes it an even more convenient tool.

Use it on your favorite Web browser on your desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Now you can also search and browse Stylebook Online directly in Microsoft Word, with our new Office app, as one more way to put your subscription to use.

You will need a current AP Stylebook Online user name and password to use this app.

As AP updates its style throughout the year, users can get email updates and check the new entries and recent changes section online.

You can create your own custom listings and add your own notes on AP's entries.

Search functionality makes it easier to find all listings relevant to your query. Use simple or advanced searches to find style listings along with your custom style entries

Subscribers can submit questions via Ask the Editor and search thousands of previously answered questions in the archive. Ask the Editor has more listings than the Stylebook itself.

Pronouncers include phonetic spellings of hundreds of words and audio files so you can hear the right way to say names in the news.

The Media Law Guide offers journalists a framework for understanding some of the legal questions commonly encountered in news gathering and publishing.

You get access to Stylebook Online via an account activation email following your order receipt. Your one-year subscription starts when you activate your account.

Once your Stylebook Online account is activated, you can log in through your Office app and get style guidance without leaving your Word document. Highlight a word or phrase to automatically look it up in the Stylebook. Search or browse for terms and the A-Z chapters, or drill down into the sports, business, food, fashion, religion, media law, punctuation and social media chapters.

Stylebook Online rates are based on the number of users, with pricing available either for named users or concurrent users. The price per user decreases with more users and can be more affordable than hard copy books.
