Iceberg is a new electronic book reader app for the iPhone which brings the timeless experience of reading books to the mobile space, wedding the functionality of the iPhone to the feel and familiarity of books. Iceberg makes it easier and more fun than ever to discover and buy new books. Each book acts as a gateway to other titles in the bookstore, which is located right inside of iTunes. Readers can buy books instantly, as soon as their interest is piqued. They can get books when they want them, wherever they are anytime, anywhere.
With the release of the iPhone OS 3.0 this summer, Iceberg will offer powerful, new functionality that will give readers improved ways to enjoy their favorite books, magazines and newspapers. Here are some of the new features in the new Iceberg Reader
BookShelf: Display all of your Iceberg books in one location. Complete with automatic bookmarking that brings readers right back to the last page they were reading.
In-App Purchasing: Download books, newspapers and magazines straight to the Iceberg Reader via in-app purchase. Books download from iTunes straight to your phone.
Copy/Paste: Harness the iPhone’s 3.0 advancements to select specific passages to share or notate. Email selected text instantly, or write a note to refer to later.
In-App Email: Create notes, then export them to collaborate on a project, or email them to your book club without leaving the App.
Go to Chapter & Go to Page: Quickly jump to your favorite page, passage or section with these new tools.
Book Navigation: Skim through the book using our re-designed navigation function.
Iceberg is different from all other existing electronic book readers – it’s the only one that replicates the actual experience of reading a book. It’s all done in an organic way that feels right to people who love to read. With Iceberg:
– Each and every book exists as its own application right in iTunes. It’s the fastest, most convenient way to purchase books electronically.
– Iceberg maintains pagination. This means that every one page in an Iceberg book is equivalent to a page in a print copy of a book.
– Text can get bigger and smaller as readers pinch in and out. But Iceberg text reflows automatically so there’s no annoying scrolling across the page.
– Readers can search text, take notes and skim through pages, all in an organic and intuitive interface that readers will love.

Trying to buy ideberg reader from UK Itunes. Get response ‘not available in UK’Posted on July 12th, 2009 at 1:34 am by John
Any other way I can get this app?
I have purchased my second iceberg reader about 10 mins ago. “Good Woman” by Danielle Steele. I cannot scroll down any of the pages in order to see the end of each page. I know not my phone because all my other books and apps work just fine. I paid $7.99 for this book and would like it refunded or repaired in a timely manner .

Gloria, please address your message to the app developers themselves. This app review was made in 2009 and unless they check this page again, you’re out of luck with us. You’ll be better off contacting them directly so that your book refund can be taken care of.Posted on April 3rd, 2011 at 11:45 pm by Joseph Ho
