- Pepys' Diary iPhone app: new features
A year ago I mentioned in passing that there was an iPhone app in which you could read the first year of Samuel Pepys’ diary. Aimer Media <http://www.aimermedia.com/> have now updated the app, to include another year (1661 as well as 1660), plus a few new features. From the blurb:
• New reading engine allows night reading and smoother page turning.
• Also included are enhanced and additional sharing options for email, twitter and Facebook, in particular by including links to PepysDiary.com
• Accessibility has been improved with correct reading via VoiceOver of entries and buttons.
So, if you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, and want a bit more Sam in your life, head over to the app store, where it costs £1.19, which I’m guessing is $1.99 in the US:
(Disclosure: The plan is that a small cut from these fees will come my way.)
I particularly like the parental guidance for the app:
