myFry is Stephen Fry’s latest autobiography, in the rather wondersome shape of a beautifully-designed iPhone app

myFry is the beautifully-designed iPhone app version of Stephen Fry’s latest autobiography.
Priced at £7.99, it’s also a lot cheaper than buying a hardback book and it fits far easier into your back pocket. Clearly, you have to be a Stephen Fry fan to appreciate the many funny and frivolous tales within. But hey, who isn’t a Fry fan? He is, after all, a national treasure don-cha-know?
Fry is also an unashamed gadget-freak and Apple fanboy. But these are not the reasons why we love him. It is his grasp of the English language, his wit and his warmth that are his true charms.
myFry takes the index from The Fry Chronicles and makes it into an appealing-looking circular structure that you can dip in and out of as you like, with each of 112 different sections immediately accessible. Fry’s stories are also searchable by People, Subjects, Feelings and Fryisms.
If there are any gripes about the app, it would be that it proves to be a little bit fiddly at first and sometimes you may find that you open up the wrong section by mistake.
Other than that minor quibble, Penguin has done a great job converting a fine book into something that is far more interesting than the standard e-book format.
