The Jane Austen Library uses the established Standard Works book reader already enjoyed by thousands of users on a daily basis. It's also the same reader which powers our "U.S. Historical Documents" application which received a perfect 10/10 rating from AppCraver.com

The Standard Works book reader is simple to use, but also contains many advanced features not usually found in other eBook readers. Rather than continually flicking through little pages of text like some book readers, the Standard Works book reader displays an entire chapter or book at once for your convenience. The text can even automatically scroll for you in both portrait and landscape modes while reading. Highlight important words or phrases using the absolute best highlighting system available on the iPhone platform. Create notes for each paragraph which can be displayed inline and assign bookmarks to any paragraph in any book for future reference. And if that's not enough, quickly and easily find any text from any book with the fastest and most powerful search engine available on the iPhone.

The Standard Works book reader contains the following main features:

• Auto-scrolling (both variable-speed and tilt-based, portrait and landscape modes are supported)

• Adjustable fonts, size, colors, margins, spacing, and alignment (you can even adjust the font size by using a pinching gesture while reading!)

• Highlighting - 12 background colors, 12 foreground colors, bold, italic, and underline

• Night (low-light) mode - Black background with white text

• Application tips

• Bookmarks and even folders of bookmarks

• Last location in each book is remembered

• When re-launched, you're returned to the exact location you were last at while reading

• Search for words or phrases with INSTANT search results

• Powerful advanced search options

• Create notes for each paragraph which can be displayed inline

• Animated satin bookmark (similar to the one in the Classics application)

• Ability to choose the application's color theme

Be sure to check out our Bible and "U.S. Historical Documents" applications as well as more books from world renowned authors like:

Turns out I Prefer Page Flip

:
I've switched to a couple of page flip apps that I prefer. One has a lovely antique parchment look, and one has a classy eggshell interface with a very subtle progress bar. Both are easy on the eyes, without the stress of a scrolling reader. This app, unfortunately, proved too stressful to provide the kind of long-term reading experience I was looking for.

5/5 stars

Excellent Reader App

:
This is a nice reader. I haven't read Pride and Prejudice on it yet, so I cannot comment on the problem others have had. In other books, it has never frozen on me. Unlike most other readers for iPod, this app has the ability to include notes and highlights - a great feature for future reference. Very easy to use. My only qualm is that the highlights break between each word rather than a single unbroken color - but this is a minor defect.

So Many Good Things But Missing The Basics

:
I really want to like this application. It has so many worthy features that one would want in a ereader. No need to list them in this review as they are already in the description. However, the Standard Works Jane Austen Library has serious basic flaws that make you wonder what were they thinking. First there is no full screen support except in landscape scroll mode. But unfortunately this mode dictates how fast or slow you may read and it certainly can not scroll fast enough for everyone. And during this mode when it gets to the end of the chapter it just come to a stop. Second, and more serious is that the pages are not anchored as they should be, which means that you must constantly scroll with your finger. This action requires much more effort than just tapping to turn a page would be. And because the pages are not anchored you can not use your finger as a pacing guide. Plus if you give the page flick instead of a push you will loose your place.
