Triple Quick Fiction iPhone App

This makes me feel old, in a you-kids-and-your-new-fangled-communication-devices kind of way. Featherproof Books has announced the release of the Triple Quick Fiction iPhone app, an application that allows you to download new stories to your iPhone or iPod. The "Triple Quick" name does, in part, refer to the quick attainment of the stories, but also to the length of the stories, only 333 words long, or 3 iPhone screens. This seems like the logical next step from Featherproof's downloadable mini-books, which are also a quick, free way to get the latest stories from the current hot authors, but the app takes things one step further. Not only can you read the stories Featherproof makes available, but you can also compose your own stories and submit them to Featherproof's editors. The app will be available in September, just in time for all the back-to-school hoopla to get you thinking about readin' and writin' again. Meanwhile, I'm going to go listen to three songs I've managed to upload to my store brand mp3 player.

First of all thanks a lot for the great and informative post. It was quite interesting to read about the Triple Quick Fiction iPhone App. The main reason of such my interest is the I work with this device so all information related with iPhones and their applications is very attractive and even useful for my work. Your great review makes me to be very interest in this book. I will definitely buy and read it, because I think that there I could find many useful information about iPhones. Thanks a lot one more time for the great entry and I will definitely bookmark your website.
