Feature Preview Apperplace Bookstall February Release

Our new product Apperplace Bookstall has been available since December 16th 2011. We want to say thank you to all of our community members for their interesting and helpful feedback and the numerous constructive suggestions. Starting from this input we have decided to come up with the following new major feature in our February Release: Multi-App-Support.


Page Curl Screenshots without Breaking Your Fingers

To provide you with a comfortable tool for taking screenshots of the page flip effect, we added a cool feature to Apperplace Publishing. Turn the page into the desired position and keep your finger on the corner of the page. With another finger tap onto the edge of the page you are just turning around. The page will now stay in exactly this position until you touch the screen again. This means you can let go and can take the screenshot as usual without breaking any of your fingers.


Page Curl vs. Swipe Effect – Leave it to Your Readers!

Apple was the first to introduce a well done page curl effect for iOS when launching the iBooks app on April 2nd 2010. This effect fascinated many people – users and developers alike – since it is a fun animation and also requires quite a bit of programming expertise.
