Yesterday I mentioned TextOnPhone, an eBook web app for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. Here’s an eleven-minute walkthrough to give you an idea of what it offers. I specifically did this demo in a “worst-case” scenario by using EDGE, i.e.; I shut my WiFi radio off on the iPhone. You can see the performance of the experience, which overall, I think is very good. The application wisely caches ahead a number of pages so that you really don’t need to wait for pages to load. There are some basic user customization settings and some excellent eBook reading lists and I’m very impressed that the app remembers where you left off in a book. Overall, I was pretty impressed in the short time I’ve used TextOnPhone.
