In an effort to utilize some of the time that goes to waste everyday, I decided to download some non-fiction books for my iPhone. My plan was to put the various time slots that are normally spent not being used productively in a more constructive manner. And so my search started and found some free applications.

I found a number of applications created by the folks at Tapstack where they have taken a number of non-fiction books and converted some of the core content into flash cards that are easily viewable on the iPhone. Here are some of the books that I downloaded from the AppStore.
The application provides selected content specifically formatted for the iPhone screen. Here are some screen shots of the applications.
There are a number of books available and I found the best way to find them was to search for “tapstack” using the search function in the appstore.
