"You get the feeling of actually reading a book" - Jim Dalrymple, Macworld
An intuitive and elegantly designed reading experience with realistic 3D page flips that track to your finger. You can even drag a bit to take a peek at the next page, or finish reading a sentence as you start turning!
Flick up and down in your virtual bookcase to view your collection, tap a book to open, and tap and hold to drag and sort your books
Tap the table of contents button on the top right for quick navigation between chapters
View how far you are in a book at a glance with a subtle progress display integrated into the top bar
Classics automatically remembers your place with a satin bookmark when exiting the app or book
Options to toggle 'page flip' animation to a more minimal 'slide', and to turn the page flip sound off and on can be found in your iPhone's settings application

A huge thanks for your continued support, and look for more frequent content updates over the near future. :)
