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 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:
