Not sure if this really qualifies as news...

I got an e-mail today that a Sony Reader app is available for iOS. According to the e-mail:

Quote:
Customers who download the app will also receive an exclusive short story from the New York Times-bestselling and celebrated urban fantasy author, Kim Harrison. Kim is a Reader Store favorite for her action-packed and edgy page-turners. This Reader app-only special titled “Trouble on Reserve” is an installment of her most popular Hollows series that’s sold over 2 million copies.
It's funny--the first thing in the description of the app is an explanation that they have "fixed the initial problem" with the software. So typical Sony.

Hmm. It is not available in the App store on my iPhone in Japan. Sony's not big in Japan, I guess.

Welcome to geo-restrictions, a field Sony excels in.

There is a thread in Deals [Sony Reader App for iPhone/iPad/iTouch] and one in the Sony Forum [Cannot sign into Sony Reader app for iPad] about the app. There were some problems at first with signing into the app with your adobe ID.

It took me a while to find it in the app store, as it is just called "Reader", and I kept searching for "Sony". The app has a green background with a white outline of an open book. It looks like it was developed by Bluefire.

Nope, not here in Japan. There are a ton of book reader apps, though, both for English and Japanese.
