A novel approach, well-implemented
Byook is a new format for reading, I hope more and more books will be converted into byooks, combining texts with music, sound effects and imagery to thrill the reader more than the author had intended. There is a huge market for this kind of entertainment. I hope that the Byook team will keep up its amazing effort and ensure that new byooks appear regularly, and their quality would be high. Also I hope to see an HD iPad version some day. We are yet at the root of something new, let's see how it goes. The first byook is a must-have for any keen reader. You don't want to miss the new level of book development after handwritten copies, Johann Gutenberg's printing and simple e-books. It's like inventing the moving pictures. I presume the first audience of 'Arriving of the train' was as stunned as I am today. Byook is great!
Amazing! Changes reading experience!
I have been waiting a long time for an app which takes advantage of what digital reading has to offer and this one finally does! The sounds and graphics paint the scene to make one feel more transported to the book setting. I usually prefer reading the "old" way, with a physical book in my hands, but this app makes me actually want to read digitally. Please create more stories ASAP! **It could also be developed to be used educationally with classic literature, scientific processes, and descriptions of some historic events. Wow and thank you!
The future of books is now
I generally love to read books. From novels to role playing books to comics, I honestly enjoy reading. This though has taken books to a whole new level. I started reading it with the intentions on reading a few pages before I fell asleep and I became so engaged in the story that I ended up reading the entire store. The mixture of movie and book really makes you feel like you are in the story. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait for more books to come out.
