    I saw that! I pointed it out to my wife and she thought it
    Might be pretty neat after its been out for a little while.
    She thought it was a kinda bland.

    Just curious what the benefits of this over Mobipocket which I use extensively almost every day. Can you customize the look at all. Mobipocket allows you to customize backlighting, text, color, size, spacing, layout etc. Can someone who has tried this new app give a comparison perhaps?

    There really isn't a detailed list of the Features, best bet would to be Download it and try it out :-)

    Application Features:


    Discover
    Wondering what to read next?
    Use the Discover section to browse recommendations, new releases, or watch video interviews with authors.

    Search
    Search millions of books, DVDs, and CDs using your iPhone's camera. Just snap a photo of the front cover and instantly get product details, editorial reviews, and customer ratings - even find and reserve a copy in the store closest to you!

    Stores
    Find your closest Barnes & Noble, get maps and directions, and see which stores offer cafes and free AT&T Wi-Fi access. Plus, view upcoming events including author appearances, musical performances, and children’s Storytimes.

    This is a nice find. I am sure after a couple upgrades this thing will be legit.
