Read a classic on your Bada handset
Alice in Wonderland eBook Review
by on August 14, 2010
There are numerous eBooks available on the Samsung Apps store – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is just one of them and although each is a separate app they take the same kind of format.
The controls are easy enough to use – previous and next for the pages (you can also skip to a particular number) as well as zoom in and out buttons. The app will also remember where you got to next time you go into it.
The issue with the implementation of eBooks on our Samsung Wave was that the pages are not at all the right length – on a mobile phone you hardly want to be spending a long time scrolling. Can you zoom out to see more? Well yes you can, but zooming out of the page so it’s almost the right length just makes the text pretty much unreadable.
iBooks on the iPhone, for example, presents you with pages that are the correct length for your device, removing the need to scroll. Another problem is that you have to use the previous and next buttons to move pages; you can’t swipe to the side to ‘turn’ the page.
The whole implementation is poor and we don’t expect there will be too many people who actually read books using their Bada smartphone until this improves.
