There's an app for that...

You can forecast the weather, check the trains and book a restaurant, and now, you can read 'Wolf Hall'. Hilary Mantel's award winning novel, was today released as an app for the iphone. The historical novel, based on the life of Tudor advisor Thomas Cromwell, became the Man Booker Prize winner in 2009, and is fast on the way to becoming the best-selling Booker winner in history. The app features the full text, a 30 minute discussion between Mantel and historian David Starkey, a Tudor family tree and cast of characters, a essay by Mantel on historical fiction, and regular news feeds and podcasts.
