July 11, 2012 in Books (E)

[] Bucharest, Romania - With pride and enthusiasm Cognitive Bits Software announces an amazing update to Self Help Classics, foremost personal improvement app for iPhone and iPad, which now brings a novel automatic computer reading option on top of what already was the best dedicated iOS book app.

Self Help Classics is a one-of-the-kind mobile library collecting the best classic masterpieces in the field of personal improvement, self help, business advice, inspiration and motivation. Since its first edition in 2009, Self Help Classics has been a featured top paid app in the Books category around all English-speaking countries, earning the praises of hundreds of thousands.

During the past 3 years the mobile library has grown in size, from the initial 7-book content to a vast 45-book collection which includes world-famous bestsellers such as "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill (the most successful motivational book in history), "The Art of Public Speaking" by Dale Carnegie, "The Game of Life and How to Play it" by Florence S. Shinn, "Letters from a Stoic" by Seneca, the biographies of famous American billionaires or inventors and many great other classic masterpieces on attracting success and happiness, leadership or finding daily inspiration and persistent motivation.

Responding to multiple users requests, for the first time in a self help iOS app, owners of latest generation iPhone and iPads can sit back and relax while paragraphs scroll gently on screen and the friendly computer-generated voice reads aloud the wisdom of ages past. The user friendly text-to-speech option(with voice processing algorithms from Carnegie Mellon and Edinburgh Universities) can be freely tested by every Self Help Classics user, and fully unlocked via an optional in-app purchase.

For the uninitiate, in addition to the voice option, Self Help Classics is also a classic reading power-horse: a better than ever intuitive user interface, gesture-driven full-screen reading mode, improved readability with brightness control, night theme option and eye friendly fonts. Other features include: fluid bookshelf layout with togglable book descriptions, easy management of bookmarks, ability to select, save and share favorite quotes, full text search, page swipe navigation, a novel autoscroll reading mode, full universal app compatibility (buy once, read it on every iPhone, iPod touch and iPad), and a gorgeous design for both retina displays and classic ones.
