APP WATCH: Stephen Fry's memoirs on iPhone and iPad

Stephen Fry, he's an Apple fan. He might have mentioned it once, twice or maybe 100 or so times. So it's no surprise to see his memoirs appear as an app.

That book is The Fry Chronicles, which you can still get as a traditional book, not to mention an ebook, but the big development is the iOS4 app. According to TechRadar, the iPhone/iPad version allows you to read the book any which way you want, with colour-coded sections replacing traditional chapters.

'Instead of reading my book in a boring old beginning-to-end fashion, we thought you might like to read it backwards, or upside down, or from the inside out and back again,' said Fry.

According to the publisher: 'I can't think of a better author to launch this kind of new publishing - Stephen himself represents everything that we hold dear and value in Britain, yet at the same time has an extraordinary knowledge and love of cutting-edge technology.'

If you want it, the myFry app is available for £7.99.
