MagicReader is a Touch-Free book reader. You can flip through pages just by turning your head!
Turn your face sideways to move pages, just as if you were touching the screen.
For example, you can
* Read while eating with both hands,
* Read a recipe while cooking, and never have to touch the screen,
* Read a musical score while playing an instrument,
* Read a book while holding a baby in your arms,
* Go through documents while typing on a keyboard.
We believe there are countless more useful ways to use MagicReader to help the way you read things!

MagicReader is also a very FAST book reader. Depending on how fast you move your fingers, you can scroll through pages with no time-lag. Also, by pressing down the side of the screen, you can flip through pages just like a real book.

Compatible Formats:
* PDF, Zip, and CBZ files.
* Compatible image file formats are: .jpg .png .gif .tiff and .bmp
More formats will be supported in near future!

We plan to continue improving the accuracy of the system, so stay tuned for updates!
Some features we plan to add very soon:
*Landscape mode
*Book selection without touching.
*Other methods for a touch-free reading experience.
*And more!

NOTE: MagicReader runs on the 1st generation iPad, but the "touch-free" mode is only compatible with devices with a front-camera.
WARNING: Try not to turn your head too fast to avoid straining your neck. If you suffer neck-pain or headaches, minimize the use of the touch-free function.
