The UK's most illustrious gadgeteer migrates to the iPad
by on July 4, 2010
Upon the iPad’s launch, this collection of national treasure Stephen Fry’s blogs and writings shot to number two in the iTunes chart. The UK’s favourite gadget fan launched the free app on the same day as the iPad went on sale and it proved an instant success with his fellow Apple fans.
The app features Fry’s 5 latest writings in an easy digestible form, along with links to the full website. Scanning pages from right to left in book form, rather than in a horizontal web format, the app is very nicely designed and easily readable, and laced with amusing cartoon illustrations.
The app doesn’t ultilised multi-touch, and isn’t laced with links to additional content, such as Fry’s momentously popular Twitter freed.
The star was keen to inform T3 that he wanted to keep the content as clean as possible. There is, however ample opportunity to share the content through the ShareDeck technology that ties into your own Twitter and Facebook feeds as well as providing the opportunity for readers to email favourite articles to their friends.
You had to know Mr Fry would be in on this, and the FryPaper app is just the beginning of his iPad-centric presence.
