Living with the iPhone 3GS: Eucalyptus

The £5.99 Eucalyptus App allows you to download any text from the Gutenberg Project, and have it converted into an attractive and easy-to-navigate e-book.

The interface is excellent, and choosing from the 30,000 available texts is eased by the 'staff picks' section, presented in a browsable bookshelf with 'library card' outlines of the content.

When you have selected a book, it is downloaded and converted into an e-book, complete with a 'Penguin Paperback'-style cover. The text is elegant, legible and zoomable. The page-turning animation is interactive without being obtrusive.
