Please read! Ways to make the app better
I think this is a great app as it allows the book cover art to be available and it is one of the most recognized applications when downloading epubs. It has made my reading experience a whole lot better.
Despite that, there are some problems (more like setbacks) that disables the app from being more widely used.
First of all it does not have a text colour/back ground colour option given even thought the measliest of book applications have it.
Next it should contain a percentage of how much of the book has been read.
These would really help one's reading experience through the app much better. I have been using the app for months and this is what I feel that would make the app more downloaded around the world.
Think different ... Don't come above .. Go depth the objects...
I think iBook have been perfected with skeuomorphic .. That is the best new modernize bookshelf... I really love that... When u see through the window, everything u see is on a depth panel... I think depth more natural than skeuomorphic which imitiate the real object.. Think different... Don't come above ... Go depth the objects..
Singapore ibooks store?
I love the fact that apple has this apps to enjoy books. But why ibook store in Singapore only has classic book? I cant even get my collins dictionary because i dont have US or UK credit card, since the dictionary (and a lot of other books) aren't made available in Singapore. Please have all awesome books, novels etc be available here too!!!
