The Man Booker Prize has just unveiled its new iPhone app – a first for UK literary prizes. The app, created by award winning digital agency Vexed Digital, will be free to download and will offer access to the Man Booker Prize archive – offering a full chronological history of the prize including information about the judges and the longlist, shortlist and winning authors and books. App users will be able to access exclusive author interviews, video content and audio and text extracts from selected Man Booker Prize titles.

Push notification functionality will let users know about every stage of the Prize, with up to date information on the shortlist and winner announcements. In addition, a unique GPS service allows users to search for their local book shop or to buy directly from online retailers’ websites.
