Last week—on the publication date of House Rules—Simon & Schuster released the official iPhone app for Jodi Picoult. With the app, you can keep up with Picoult’s news and Twitter feed; write on a fan wall; receive tour updates; and even read “exclusive recipes from Jodi and music that she's written.”

Picoult’s not the only author with an iPhone app; in December, Random House launched a line of apps for authors, including Steve Berry, Sophie Kinsella and Karen Marie Moning.

Do any Book Case readers use author apps? What feature do you find most fun/useful? Or is reading the author’s book enough?
