Review – Edinburgh Book app from purpleTrails

A short while ago I was asked to test a new bookish app.  Naturally the first thing I thought was ‘braw, there’s a series of blog posts in that!’  So, over the next few weeks I’ll be reviewing a few booky apps for tablets and smartphones – kicking off today with the newly released Edinburgh Book App from purpleTrails.

I don’t have a lot to say about any of them though, sadly.  So what I might do is incorporate them all into a short horror story, as this month I’ve been claiming I can write a short story every single day (turns out I can’t – it’s really quite hard).
