Get Appy

gethappy Get AppyHorn Book reviews have hit the mobile market as Book Verdict, available for free at the iTunes Store. I have just started playing with it but it seems pretty neat: including reviews taken from the Horn Book Magazine and Guide, the app recommends about 10,000 children’s and YA titles published in the last ten years. Each record includes the Guide review (or excerpt from the Magazine), bibliographic information, recommended age level,  a link to the World Cat record and local library availability, and to Amazon.com for purchase. Try it out and tell me what you think.
