Stephen Fry’s first iPad app – FryPaper – has launched today, as expected, to go along with the launch of the iPad in the UK (and eight other nations). The name of the app – originally said to be FryPad – looks to have been changed to fall in line with Apple’s policy on no usage of the word ‘pad’ within app titles.
The app is a very basic and bare bones one for now, in which some of Fry’s latest writings are shared.
Stephen Fry’s first ipad app – naturally called the FryPad – will launch this Friday (May 28), the same day that the iPad is released in the UK and eight other countries for the first stage of its international launch.
Fry is an acclaimed novelist and author, sitcom writer, comedian, tech geek and technology columnist for The Guardian, and all-round spectacularly brilliant bloke.
The upcoming FryPad app looks fairly basic – in the sneak-peek video look at it over at the T3 site. It will be a collection of all of Fry’s blog postings and ‘blessays’ – with audio and video archive material to be added in a future update.
