39 reasons to get the iPad app

As much as we want to painstakingly go through 39 reasons as to why you should go get the iPad version of The Thirty-Nine Steps, we don’t want to delay your story experience any longer. It’s out now! and published through Faber and Faber (conveyors of all things brilliant in the literary world), and the app icon looks something like this:

  1. I hope you’ll follow this one up with a digital adaptation of Erskin Childers’s marvelous (1903) The Riddle of the Sands. Wikipedia notes that Childers, “established a formula that included a mass of verifiable detail, which gave authenticity to the story – the same ploy that would be used so well by John Buchan, Ian Fleming, John le Carré and many others.”

    –Michael W. Perry, author of Untangling Tolkien

    • Hi Michael, great suggestion! We are currently short-listing our next digital adaptation and will certainly put Riddle of the Sands into the mix.

    Hi there, the 39 steps app does not use the orientation of the iPad when displaying the content. This means that when using the smart cover as a stand the application upside-down.

    • Hi Andrew, the reason we did this is to prevent people muffling the speaker (bottom right of the ipad) when holding the device. We will look into auto-rotation in an update. Thanks for the comment, and hope you are enjoying the app

    Is this the full text of the novel?
    I do understand that minor edits have been made such as “the wind howled” etc.

    Congratulations it looks very impressive so far.

    • Hi Lawrence, yes it’s the full text minus those audio-visual elements that have been treated as such. As such, we believe it is the most faithful adaptation ever made. Glad you are liking it so far :)
