App Review: Classics Brings the Books to You

classicssquare1 150x150 App Review: Classics Brings the Books to YouThere are lots of ways to read books on your iPhone or iPod.  I have always enjoyed the app Stanza, which is free, but doesn’t have all the latest books.  Then, there is Amazon’s Kindle, which was recently released in the App Store.  Kindle is also free, but you have to buy the books for it.  With the iPhone commmercials spotlighting it and its position in the top 100, Classics has caught my attention.  I decided to try it out.

When you launch the app, there is a book shelf with several books on it.  Simply tap on the book that you want to read to start reading it.  Simple enough, right?  The reader interface in the app is beautiful.  The pages of the books are an off white color, which makes the pages less bright, while the words are still easy to read.  You do not have pages that turn and then scroll either.  The text on each page fits on the screen.  At the end of the page, you turn the page either by swiping your finger right to left or tapping the corner of the page.  The page turns look remarkably real.

If you return to the menu after starting to read a book, the app will place a bookmark where you left off to mark your place.  Bookmarks can be seen hanging out of books in the bookcase.  My only complaint with this app is that the book selection is limited.  Having said that, there have been, and I am sure there will be, updates that add more and more books to the app.  Right now, there is a good starting selection of classic books.

Classics is on sale for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
