My thanks to Classics for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Classics is a book reading app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, with content from classic public domain books such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Time Machine, and more. As time goes on, they’re adding additional titles via free software updates. The UI is exquisitely crafted; paper actually curls when you swipe to turn pages, each book has a custom-designed cover, and the content of the books are formatted specifically for the iPhone screen.
Screenshots and animated examples from the UI are available at the Classics web site. It’s available in the App Store for just $1.
