Previously I posted about creating a magazine style text reader using Core Text. From the response to that article I can see that there is a good amount of interest in building reading apps on the iPad.
The Flipboard app is an excellent magazine style reader for iPad. With the beautiful middle of the page flipping, and easy to read articles setup really gives it an immersive quality.
I’ve come across an open source library that aims to create an iPad reader similar to Flipboard, and provides similar transitions, and easy article reading as Flipboard. Here’s a quick video demonstrating the open source project in action in the iPad simulator:
UPDATE: A forked repository for this library can be found on Github here (thanks Giacomo for the comment!).
You can check out Flipboard on iTunes (it’s free – a great reader).
With the help of FlipView and the magazien reader tutorial mentioned at the start you should be well on your way to building a top quality reader.
