That would be great too.

All Buddhists texts should be available in digital format. It would be much easier to carry the Tipitaka on an iPhone or Blackberry than in physical book form.

Much more difficult to read though... and those books were made for reading.

Mmm...maybe...although in the panorama view, with the 4" screen...and the bigger size font, it's pretty nice having ATI in your pocket...yam (bag) in my case...dyno in fact... :smile:

Neat app!

I read quite a bit on my iPhone. The Kindle app in landscape, at largest font setting, is perfect for my 43-year-old eyes. The biggest advantage, of course, is that it is always with me, should I have an opportunity to enjoy some literature. :)

I actually have been enjoying reading on my blackberry. I can even use an autoscroll for pacing which makes me focus more and less likely to space out, backtrace, etc.
