Many of you have been contacting us with questions about Apple’s recently announced iBooks for iPad. We have no involvement, but we are proud to have influenced the future user interface of digital reading.

Escape into some of the greatest stories ever written.

Experience digital reading in a way that is so natural, and so obvious, it just feels right.

It begins with a collection of over a dozen hand-picked, literary masterpieces…

“You get the feeling of actually reading a book” – Jim Dalrymple, Macworld

• An intuitive and elegantly designed reading experience with realistic 3D page flips that track to your finger. You can even drag a bit to take a peek at the next page, or finish reading a sentence as you start turning!
• Flick up and down in your virtual bookcase to view your collection, tap a book to open, and tap and hold to drag and sort your books
• Tap the table of contents button on the top right for quick navigation between chapters
• View how far you are in a book at a glance with a subtle progress display integrated into the top bar
• Classics automatically remembers your place with a satin bookmark when exiting the app or book
• Options to toggle ‘page flip’ animation to a more minimal ‘slide’, and to turn the page flip sound off and on can be found in your iPhone’s settings application

“You’re really getting a much nicer book experience… it’s a gorgeous program.” – Leo Laporte, MacBreak Weekly

    Classics is an e-reader with an unusual approach. Instead of buying books and reading them in classics, you buy the app and you get new books as updates are released. The titles that are supplied are all fantastic pieces of literature. What is amazing about this app is the attention to detail. No other e-reader comes this close to mimicking the experience of a true paper novel. Everything from the look, the feel, the sound, and even the way the pages turn just feels right. It is a pleasure to read on this app and for the price it delivers an experience which to me is worth far more. If you like classic stories like Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island, then I recommend this app, however if you are looking for a fully customizable e-reader then this is not for you.
