"Our Uncle John's Bathroom Reader iPhone app is a natural extension of this engaging, funny and smart line of books," said Sydney Stanley, Executive Vice President of Baker & Taylor Publishing Group, based in San Diego. "Given that our die-hard fans consume and share trivia wherever they are, 24/7, creating this app was simply a no-brainer."
The Uncle John's iPhone app brings to life much of what fans love about the books. There are daily facts, which are similar to the famous "running feet" in the books. Weekly articles span bizarre and amazing stories from pop culture, history, science, humor and more. Fans can also read Uncle John's blog posts directly from the app and squeeze the iconic ducky for a surprising sound.
"For years we've wanted to offer a moving version of our books – something people could take with them to read wherever they go. We are extremely happy that our iPhone app will be satisfying our fans' need for great bathroom reading anytime, anywhere," said Gordon Javna, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Portable Press.
