Tokyo-based mobile app developer Yappa started distributing the manga works of Tezuka Osamu, with a content distribution technology that the company also used to develop the Sankei Newspaper’s iPhone/iPod app also uses (I mentioned the app a bit in this article).
The company publishes a new issue online every week, and each issue takes a title from his manga series including Astro Boy, Princess Knight, Three-Eyed One, Phoenix and Black Jack.
The app is available for free for the next six months, and now you can download it at the Japanese iPhone/iPod AppStore (the link to the app page). A Windows Mobile app will be available soon.
