I just discovered a really cool app that I can't use (because it's only for iPhone and iPad), but I wanted to tell you about it anyway. It's by BookTrack.com, which creates soundtracks for ebooks. The software knows which page you're on, and which music/sound effects/ambience to play on that spread. It even tracks your reading pace based on how often you flip pages so that it knows approximately where you are on the page (and there are ways to pause it, of course).
Among those either available or coming soon are a Sherlock Holmes novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, an Oscar Wilde story, Huckleberry Finn, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," Three Musketeers, "The Ugly Duckling," and...the sequel to I Am Number Four.
Okay then. I guess it was effective in rocketing them into the NY Times.
But still. That's really cool. I just hope they expand their platforms soon so that us non-Apple Drones can use it. Their FAQ pdf says it "will be available" on computer operating systems, Android, and "other devices," so...I'm bookmarking it.
