When iBooks was available on the iPad we immediately loved it. Like a lot of Apple products, its interface is simple but beautiful with a good usage of animations. We started to use it daily to read books, technical articles, …, everything which can be converted to an .epub ebook. Why an .epub file and not a pdf file? Just because you can change fonts, color, layout, without having to zoom and pan. We started to hope to have a Mac version of iBooks. Unfortunately it seems that this is not in the Apple strategy to provide a such version. Because there was nothing similar on the market, we took the decision to create our vision of an ebook reader on the Mac. After months of development, this project is now close to the first public beta version. We are happy to present bookinist, the new ebook reader for Mac.
