The best iPad App... in the world – Click above to watch video after the jump

Jeremy Clarkson has gone 21st century. The co-host of the BBC's Top Gear, along with publisher Penguin Books, has created an app for the iPad called iClarkson, and it features over 140 of his automotive reviews that were taken from his books Driven to Distraction and Don't Stop Me Now.

The app is styled to look like a study and is loaded with interactive features. Images of automobiles adorn the "walls", Clarkson's drum kit sits in the corner and many more surprises are in store for iPad users who pony up the $7.99 to buy iClarkson. Click past the jump to see the app in action.

      Shouldn't it be iJizza or iJezza or something?

      Clarkson is cool...

      but $7.99 cool... I dunno. I might enjoy episodes of Top Gear for a couple of bucks a piece, instead.

        Aren't the (chopped and edited to avoid offending the Yanks) episodes available on iTunes already?

        "Miles about something else and a little bit about the car at the end." That is so true about his writing, glad to know he acknowledges it.

        "That is so true about his writing, glad to know he acknowledges it."

        Yes, and that's the whole point. His musings are fascinating because they're undertaken from such a personal perspective, using numerous metaphors and similies which detract the reader or viewer away from the bare bones facts about the car itself and instead honing in on the feels he experiences from it. The same logic applies with artists or poets - the statements they're making are never to be taken literally.
