    I was wondering if I can use the page layer feature to make a book multilanguage. I mean, load for example page1_layer_en.png as default and page2_layer_it.png if device is set to italian. Same thing for background sound. Would it be easy to develop it using your code as base? Thanks!

    Does you application support the ability for chapters from the home screen?
    • Chris Mayer Developer 5 months ago
      Hi Craig, There's not currently a chapter selection menu, it's possible to quickly jump between pages using a slider, but not between chapters. It would be possible to add chapter support, perhaps re-purposing the page selection slider or adding an addition slider for chapter selection, but you'd need to write some additional code for this.

    Hey Chris, thanks for this, awesome. quick question, is the 1024 x 768 the size for images on an iPhone 5?
    • Chris Mayer Developer 6 months ago
      1024x768 is an ideal size as it will work well on all devices. It'll be displayed in full on iPad, and cropped slightly on iPhone. It's possible to use an additional set of images at 2048x1536 to support full iPad retina resolution. If you want to include those images add them alongside the 1024x768 images and name them with '@2x' after the filename (e.g. page1@2x.jpg, page2@2x.jpg, page3@2x.jpg, etc)

      Chris thank you for the quick response :D When you say slightly cropped… will crop out the image, or will it just fit on the screen with empty space? thanks in advance RJE
    • Chris Mayer Developer 6 months ago
      It'll look different on iPad, iPhone 3.5" and iPhone 4". On all iPad models the full image will be displayed. On iPhone models with a 3.5" screen the very top and bottom of the image will be cropped. On iPhone models with a 4" display the image will be cropped at the top and bottom, and there will be a border of the left and right of the screen. I plan to add the option in the next update of the project to include different images for iPhone/iPad so that cropping will not be required.

    Hi Chris Does your framework supports in app purchase functionality? Best regards - Jacob
    • Chris Mayer Developer 9 months ago
      Hi Jacob, In-App Purchasing is not included as a standard feature, but it'd be possible to integrate using Apple's StoreKit framework. Apple have their own documents and guides on how to do this on the iOS Developer website. Alternatively, you may find more helpful tutorials on YouTube. Chris

    Hi Chris, I'm interested with the control. I see that you mentioned that it's support unlimited page but I'm just wondering, is there any performance impact (to the app) if I add a lot of pages? in my case let say I want to add about 150 pages. Thanks
    • Chris Mayer Developer 10 months ago
      There's no performance impact from having more pages. Only the current page is loaded into memory while it is being viewed (or two pages during page transitions), after the reader leaves a page it is unloaded from memory.

    Dear Coordinator, We just bought this control today, And it is quiet different from our expectations, We just need a 2 page book reader like interface in landscape mode and 1 page in portrait mode. There is nothing like that in this library. Looking forward your urgent response.
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      Hi. There are lots of examples of apps built with this project on the description page. Downloading one (or a few) of those apps is the best way to understand what is possible from this project without writing any code. There is not an option to display two pages on screen at once with this project, if that is a feature essential to your app then either you would need to write additional code to add that feature, or perhaps find an alternative to this project which better suits your needs. Thanks, Chris.
    • AM AbdElbaset Moustafa License holderAll Versions (Unlimited App License) 1 year ago
      Hi Chris Mayer, Thanks for your prompt response. Actually two pages display is our basic need. Can you recommend us some alternate project.
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      Unfortunately I do not know of any similar project which do support a two page display.

    We are looking to buy this control for our app. Would you mind please let me show some sample application which build on it. Would you mind please let me tell how efficient you support? We are going to develop quran app, Can we add some custom code like aya selection on page and select the aya and show some popup etc on that page.?
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      On the description page, if you scroll down to 'Apps built with the project' you can find many examples of what can be created using this template. If you need support I shall try to respond as quickly as possible, sometimes I am away from my PC so a reply may not be instant, but certainly within 1-2 days at the very longest. All source code is available to edit, so you can add any new features that you wish.

    I am very intrigued, with both your color book and story book. I'm not sure which one would suit my needs. I have a coloring/story book, were the kids will color the page and the story is written on the page they are coloring. I would like to have the ability to color and have the audio of the story playing as you color. Will either of these apps work for me?
  • J Jords 1 year ago
    Hi there, I assume that I would be able to add iAds to the app? Thanks.
    • Chris Mayer Developer 1 year ago
      Yes absolutely. Full source code is available to edit so that any additional frameworks can be integrated in the usual way.
