Simon & Schuster Digital and Picoult’s imprint, Atria Books, have just launched the Jodi Picoult iPhone app, featuring an icon of her face that you can smush with your thumb every time you want to open the app. It’s pegged to the release of Picoult’s most recent novel, House Rules, which came out on March 2, though the app just went live. The book itself is not available yet as an eBook, interestingly.

The app features feeds from Picoult’s Website and Twitter account, which, according to her publisher, “she constantly updates.” Lookout. There are also links to backlist content, quizzes, and other stuff.

The app costs $.99. C’mon–you can afford it.
