Tamil Library for iPhone

Tamil Library(தமிழ் நுழகம்:ta_IN) is an aggregator of tamil books personalized for iPhone. This is a first ever attempt to get a aggregator of Tamil 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.

Tamil Library, 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 Tamil books. The aggregator contains a list of 1500 tamil books from public internet.
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 Tamil 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.

      Hi Shankar, the pages are quite heavy. Hence, few times, especially if you are using GPRS, it could be very slow. Kindly scroll through other books. Let me know if it worked.

    I rated this app excellent. It’s contents are rare, mind boggling. Wish we have the time to read.
    Good referencer too. Yes, it takes a lot of time to load. When continuing to read, it is difficult to navigate to the book again. A good index, in Tamil, with search facility would enhance value.
    Great effort by Dinesh. Can we download them to PC? How to do?

    Positive : Pioneering & execellent initiative. Contains rare topics.
    Needs improvment: Loading is bit slow. Unable to move fast, through the pages.

    Really appreciate your efforts.
