Avid users of Delicious, the social bookmarking service, can now manage the service using Red Delicious, a new app for the iPhone and iPod touch. It costs $2.49 and is available for purchase and download from the App Store.

Featuring optimised bookmark fetching from Delicious, Red Delicious lets you see your recently-added bookmarks as soon as you launch the app. You can browse your bundles and tags, see the most popular bookmarks from the Delicious community as a whole, and view your bookmarks even when you’re offline.

Communication is handled securely through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, so your username and password remain safe, and Red Delicious optimises Internet access to help reduce the drain on the battery. It also supports landscape orientation so you can read long bookmarks easier.

Red Delicious requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone 2.0 software or later.
