[prMac.com] London, England, UK - Announcing that Intelligenti Publishing, the developers of Dracula HD, has launched a first-of-its-kind application. Thanks to a flexible custom development, Dracula HD presents a realistic series of journal entries, letters and newspaper clippings that reveal, piece by piece, Bram Stoker's Dracula. The App's visual presentation is beyond what has been possible or released before, to take users to a new level of book enjoyment in a mobile platform.
The developers have gone with a bespoke design, which means the entire application has been custom built to exact specifications. "The iPad's iBooks app supports a limited format of ePublishing, which is great for reflowing text-only novels or those with limited illustrations. For greater interactivity and control, content owners are turning to developers to produce bespoke book and magazine apps," explains Intelligenti director, Jonathan Bonnick.
Dracula HD incorporates such a high level of bespoke design that it just wasn't possible to release it until the technology caught up, as it did with the launch of iPad. Now, readers can enjoy a very realistic experience not found elsewhere yet.
The app itself is Bram Stoker's novel, offered in a new way that stirs the senses. Each newspaper clipping, diary entry and letter is presented as such and looks authentic. The reader gets a feeling of having stumbled across ancient, yellowing accounts of events, which are pieces of the Dracula story.
Thanks to the bespoke development, each of the app's pages is unique, richly designed and lends itself to setting the mood of a scene. The subtle visuals add those little details that remind users that they are reading a book.
Features found in Dracula HD:
* Formatted to reveal the story in true document fashion of the time
* Each page is unique and exquisitely designed
* Subtle visuals show users how far along they are in the book
* View in landscape or portrait for open book or full screen mode
