Here's a press release for Subtitles Viewer Pro, which is an "app" for IOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad).
I don't have any experience with the software. It seems to access one of the subtitles databases, which one can do from their laptop for free, download the file, and view with any text-reading program.
But this "app" promises to make it all easier, etc., etc., and it probably does. It says that you could use it in a movie theater, but that may irritate your neighbors...
