Loved the layout
I loved the layout of the book and that I was able to turn pages. I was like I had the book in my hand. How ingenious! The story was cute but a bit flippant. If you saw the movie...only the base premise is the same...the storyline for the movie was definitely Hollywood, but I must say I enjoyed the movie better than the short story.
…Benjamin Button: ★★★★★
Tarquin…: ★★ Even Fitzgerald agrees, but I didn't buy this App for Tarquin…
The App: ★★★★ So close. The graphics are gorgeous. The typography is beautiful. Flipping through pages is effortless. Downside? Once a story is read there is no way to go back to the beginning without manually flipping backwards thru the entire book!! I suppose I'll have to uninstall the app to reset the book…
Best e-Book app!
OPINION: This e-book app feels like a real book. It's pages have enough margins, so it is not too busy. Also, the page image makes it look like a real book paper. Excellent! SUGGESTION: Why don't you create your own e-library app? Name it "iLibrary" or smth like that. I'd love to buy one if you create.
