Stephen Fry Releases Memoirs As iPhone App

Stephen Fry has released his autobiography as a hardback, e-book and iPhone application simultaneously.

Fry, a comedian, broadcaster and gadget lover, has launched his latest memoirs 'The Fry Chronicles', as an e-book, traditional hard copy and as an iPhone app, the Telegraph has reported.

The second volume of his memoirs have been published by Penguin, with the hardback version costing £20.

The digital version, which is available at Amazon's bookstore for Kindle and Apple's iBookstore, will cost users £12.99. It sports additional features such as photos and videos in which Fry describes the events that molded his life.

The app version, myFry app, is priced at £7.99 in Apple's app store. The app comes with colour codes for categories including people, subjects, feelings and Fryisms.

"We wanted to produce a unique digital publication for his book," said Jeremy Ettinghausen, digital publisher at Penguin. "We’ve created the perfect format for dipping in and out of and exploring books in a more playful way."

“Every word of The Fry Chronicles is in the myFry app, but the design and technology have allowed us to create an experience that would not be possible in print, and discover a new way to present an author’s work.”
