"A luxurious reading experience." - MacWorld
Beautifully typeset using techniques used for quality printed books, this collection includes unabridged versions of some of the world's most loved novels, plays and short stories. Pages can be 'turned', their edges following your finger, mimicking real books.

• 3D animation lets you ‘turn’ pages, mimicking real books.
• Each title displayed on a custom-designed book spine
• Lovingly typeset using techniques for quality printed books
• Choice of three text sizes (via your iPhone’s Settings App)

This app is powered by Gizreader, created by and for lovers of books. See a video demo on the GizReader website. (

The depth of each richly designed spine tells you whether a book is short, long or in-between.

Skim down the pile of books. Tap to choose. A highlight reminds you which title you were last reading.

Lose yourself almost instantly in the story. GizReader is quick. Its type is crisp and clear, beautifully set for reading pleasure. Each book’s formatting is checked and polished, compared where necessary against multiple sources.

Pages turn realistically, their edges following your finger, with a satisfying flip sound. (Unless you turn the sound off.) Alternatively, you can tap or swipe to turn pages instantly.

When you return to a book, GizReader remembers your place, even if you have resized the text. (Choose from three text sizes in your iPhone’s Settings App.) You can also see from the progress bar where you are in the story.

Truly Amazing Application

This really is an amazing application that you need to add. Not only are the graphics awesomely realistic, but the selection of books are great. Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you spend the ridiculously cheap price for this. I am still to this day surprised that they haven't raised the price b/c of its amazing quality!! :D
To the makers of this app, however, I would LOVE to see these classics added to this already awesome collection! :)) Just a few ideas: The Wizard of Oz, A Christmas Carol, The Crucible, Cyrano de Bergerac, Anne Frank's Diary, The Pearl, Hatchet, Gulliver's Travels, Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Last of the Mohicans, Les Miserables, The Most Dangerous Game, The Secret Garden, The Sound of Thunder, Moby Dick, Alice In Wonderland, and The Great Gatsby. :D

Thank you so much for such a great application! :D


This is an excellent book application. The text is easy to read and the animation smooth. I have only a few quibbles. First, I would very much like to be able to arrange the books myself, or at least have the option to sort them by author. Having books that relate to each other, such as the Sherlock Holmes ones, spread throughout the stack and not next to each other makes no sense to me. Also, there appear to be several classic masterpieces that you seem to have overlooked. I would appreciate the addition of Odyssey, Iliad, Dracula, Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, Paradise Lost, and perhaps some more Shakespearean plays. Should these features be added, this would most definitely be a 5 star app.

Very nice app

Nice selection of classic books. Nice choice of font & light tan background. Pages turn with an easy tap. Table of Contents may be tapped to jump to Chapter or current page. Remembers where you were in a book even if open another book inbetween reading. In the Settings area, can change font size (sm, m ,lg) and turn off the sound it makes when you turn the page. No bookmark ability or ability to select and copy passages that I can see but I don't really need those anyway. Very nice application.
