Description

In celebration of over 5 million downloads and the release of our next generation of iFlow Reader we are happy to provide this collection for free.

Please also download the new free "iFlow Reader" for iPhone / iPod Touch as well as "iFlow Reader HD" for iPad. The new iFlow Reader allows you to buy current titles from all your favorite authors. Check it out at http://www.iflowreader.com!

This collection of classic philosophical treatises and essays is an essential reference for students of philosophy and those who wish to reflect seriously the nature of reality, morality, and human existence. The single volume includes:

* Discourse on the Method by Rene Descartes

* Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes

* An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume

* Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion by David Hume

* Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Morals by Immanuel Kant

* An Essay Concerning Human Understanding by John Locke

* Second Treatise of Government by John Locke

* Utilitarianism by John Stuart Mill

* Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche (translated by Helen Zimmern)

* The Republic by Plato (translated by Benjamin Jowett)

The BeamItDown Book Collections use a very different approach to reading that is absolutely ideal for the screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Other reader applications display the text of the book you are reading in individual pages. The number of words that can be displayed on the screen at one time is determined by the size of the font used. This forces you to choose between reading with a very small font size or using a large font and changing pages every few seconds. The problem is that reading with a very small font induces eye strain, while frequent paging disrupts concentration.

The BeamItDown iFlow Reader solves this problem by using an entirely new approach to reading. Instead of paging, the BeamItDown iFlow Reader scrolls text much like a teleprompter. Large, easy to read text scrolls by smoothly as you read. The precise scrolling speed is controlled by subtly tilting the device, which quickly becomes very intuitive and natural. You can personalize your reading experience by selecting the paper color, text color, text size, and the font that you prefer to create a truly enjoyable reading experience.

- "iFlow Reader" is a trademark of BeamItDown Software.

What's New in Version 2.3

* Added current reading position shortcut under Chapters

* Stopped location requests

Worth a dollar

:
While all the included works are public domain (so available for free elsewhere), BeamItDown's eReader more than makes up for the price with its ease of use and the wealth of personalization options (i.e. font, font size, scrolling speed). I hope they come out with more collections at a similar price!
