APP OF THE DAY – Fry Paper (iPad)
Thanks to the beautiful sunshine, staff shortages and leaves on the track, we're running a little late with App of the Day today. But it's well worth waiting for, oh yes.

To be completely honest, there's not much to Stephen Fry's iPad app debut. It tidies his personal technology blog so it's deliciously iPad shaped, and there's a few sharing options added for good measure.

But the final and indisputable reason to try Stephen Fry's Fry Paper iPad app is that it is free, gratis, without cost and complimentary, so you can always delete it again if it's not your bag!
