iPhone Kannada Library – Read one thousand Kannada Books on iPhone


Kannada Library(ಕನ್ನಡ ಲೈಬ್ರೆರಿ:kn_IN) is an aggregator of kannada books personalized for iPhone. This is a first ever attempt to get a aggregator of Kannada books onto iPhone.
Some of the books available in public internet do not offer convinient platform for reading the same on handhelds. This prompted me to come up with a framework for getting an aggregator onto iPhone.

Kannada Library, based on this aggegator, provides an enjoyable reading experience on a iPhone/iPod Touch. Some of the unique features of this iPhone application are:

1. Provides a Easier way to Read around one thousand Kannada books.
2. Easy Navigation between pages. Now, navigate across pages using Scrubbing feature of iOS. Right to left scrubbing would take you to next page and left to right scrubbing loads previous page.
3. Enjoyable Reading experience with Zoom-In and Zoom-Out features. Use 2 fingers to zoom-in and zoom-out. Double tap to restore to original scale.
4. Stores the Pages locally so that you could read Kannada books as many times without needing internet, subsequently.
5. Stores the reading history locally. So when you switch between multiple books, the application knows where exactly you left reading the previous book.
