Who would have thought that there would ever be an iphone app containing two of the greatest classics of all times. Well not me to be honest, that is the reason that I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this unusual app. You can find out a lot more about the Trojan war, the fair Helen and the mighty Achilles, you can follow Odyssey’s adventures on land and sea, on his journey home by simply downloading this interesting app. If you are a book lover and a habitual reader like me, then you are absolutely going to enjoy this app to the maximum. Unlike other reading apps, where the book is displayed on individual pages, this giving some problems, because the number of words per page is determined by the font size, which forces you to change pages every few seconds if you are reading with a bigger font size, something that turns out to be real nag eventually; here this problem is solved by a simple matter of approach, here you can scroll through the whole text, there are no numbered pages which you have to turn every now and then. The scrolling speed is determined by a gentle titling of the devise, which during a period of time can become truly intuitive to your touch. Another cool feature is that you can completely personalize your whole reading experience by choosing the color of the paper, the font color, the text size, etc. So don’t let this app go to waste, it is honestly worth having and reading, there is nothing better than a good story of love and war after a hard day at work.
Finally an iphone app that is created just for those that simply cannot imagine their lives without a good book. Why bother traveling with couple of book when you can carry thousands of them in your pocket. Sounds amazing right? – Well, honestly it is. Stanza has in its library all the classical works, ranging from Shakespeare, to Shelley, to Byron, and even the modern day bestseller, like Dan Brown, etc. You can download your books from pages like: Fictionwise, Feedbooks, Book Glutton, The Guttenberg Project and many more. The difference between these sites is that in some of them you’ll have to pay to download your favorite book. The downloading takes just a couple of seconds if you are downloading through Wi-Fi. Another cool feature is that if you hold your finger over the cover art, the picture will be saved in your photo album. There are also RSS feed from most of the newspapers or magazines, like The Economist, or New York Times, available through this app. The flipping of the pages can be very realistic if you choose to flip by swiping your finger across the screen, but the pages can be flipped even with a simple tap on the end of the screen. And probably one of the best features of this iphone app is that, Stanza, is smart enough to actually remember where you were in your book.
