A James Joyce iPod app is scheduled for introduction at Dublin’s James Joyce Center on June 14, two days before Bloomsday:
It’s six chapters from Ulysses; it’s twenty locations from Dubliners; it’s fifteen of Joycean hostelries. It’s got over 100 spots from Ulysses. Each comes with excerpts from the works glossed with expert criticism, quirky facts, and contemporary images. We’ve tried very hard to be open to the beginner, but not boring to the expert. We set out to to bring Joyce to everyone, yet never be condescending. We set out to be informative, even erudite, but with a common touch. We really hope we’ve succeeded.
