“Classics,” a new software reading platform for a growing collection of literary masterpieces, is now available on the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.
“My partner Andrew Kaz and I actually began working on this app after we had toyed around with my Kindle,” says co-creator Phill Ryu. “We thought this [was a] flawed reading experience and we knew we could easily top that on the iPhone platform.”
The application features a slick interface, showcasing animated page turns that realistically respond to the user’s touch, visual bookmarks, and a fully realized bookcase for your collection.
The initial collection includes a dozen classic works, including “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, “Hound of the Baskervilles”, “Flatland”, and “Robinson Crusoe”. Additional books will be added over time via free software updates.
Classics is available for US$2.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
