What is ‘iBooks 2 ‘?
Experience gorgeous Multi-Touch textbooks designed for the iPad.
Now you can experience the most amazing textbook you’ve ever read. Textbooks that take advantage of everything iPad can do with Multi-Touch, audio, video and more.
Instead of seeing just one image on the page, readers can swipe through an entire collection of interactive photos and captions with their fingertips. They can navigate the gallery using photo thumbnails or step through images one at a time. A textbook brought to life by iPad.
‘Windows of Vienna’ iBooks bring fullscreen textbooks with interactive photos, slideshows and videos with content from the blog ‘Windows of Vienna‘ and previous projects like the famous ‘Scarf TV’ or ‘Cookbook’ back to You on your iPad.
What to expect from the Windows of Vienna Book Series?
When in landscape mode – which I prefer and my layout is based on, textbooks flow from one page to the next, with embedded interactive content videos and hidden slideshows. Tap and zoom on any content.
To search through the book, you can swipe from page to page, browse thumbnails, or search for terms using iBooks 2 search features. Highlighting and adding notes is possible as well and will help you finding your favorites in the future.
You can find the digital ‘Windows of Vienna’ Book Series in the iBookstore. Textbook previews include screenshots for a better understanding before you decide to purchase a book for your own use. Read a free sample of any book on the iBookstore before making it a part of your collection. ‘Windows of Vienna’ iBook Series are only supported on the iPad and are available from the iTunes App Store.
