What's New in Version 1.0.6
Full retina upgrade for the new iPad. It's stunning!
Really like the app but would like it better if you could sync between iPad and iPhone. Read a few chapters on iPad last night and tried to continue on iPhone going to work this morning but book back at beginning. Couldn't even select chapter to jump too so had to go through all story again to catch up. Am I missing something out in settings that would let me do this. Would give 5 stars if this possible.
This is what Kindle should have been
A beautiful and clever reworking of a classic work. I look forward to further reinterpretations but what about some new works written specifically for the medium. Congratulations to the creators, you have worked hard to produce this excellent piece and your efforts have paid off!
Beautiful and engaging reading experience! In reference to a previous review, most secondary school children in england read Frankenstein as part of GCSE English. No loosely based film could be a legacy for a book that is embedded even in our own language, no less important than Dracula!
More of these books please, several from other developers but don't want to risk a comparatively inferior product!
