appSessions Launches iScroll, Its New E-Book Application for Smart PhonesA Revolutionary App That Allows Users to Listen, Read and Learn on the Go (October 01, 2009)
ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 10/01/09 -- appSessions, a Maryland-based firm that designs and develops innovative applications for smart phones, is proud to announce the release of iScroll. iScroll is an e-book application that provides users a revolutionary new way to listen, read and learn on the go. Not only can you read the text, the text can also be read to you -- by the author or an actor, for a true, sensory approach to reading comprehension.
According to the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), supported reading tools can increase a reader's ability to learn print-related material by up to 38%. With iScroll, a user has the ability to read in a format that fits his/her individual learning style and environment, whether it's a busy mom listening to a novel while driving, a child who is learning to read for the first time or a college co-ed reviewing course work while on the treadmill. No matter the user, iScroll makes learning easier and more effective, allowing for stronger retention of the material.
"iScroll is a innovative resource for avid readers, moms on the go, or students," states iScroll Managing Partner, Shawn Yazdani. "It turns your Internet-enabled cell phone into a portable electronic audio book where you can both hear and read popular novels or required school texts. Additionally, iScroll is a more affordable way to read; books can be downloaded directly to smart phones for as low as 99 cents per title. The screen can be customized to accommodate the reader's preference, such as increasing the text size, turning on a backlight, or changing the font and color. iScroll is also a great reading or study tool, with word or phrase look-up, bookmarking and the ability to add notes to the margins. Now learning is customized to suit the individual's needs."
