One of the many perks of technology is innovation, and one of the many perks at RedShelf is being able to understand what our users want, and responding to that quickly and efficiently.
Our developers have been hard at work to provide our users a more advanced reading and studying experience when accessing their eTextbooks and eBooks on RedShelf. In our new release, our reading feature will include the "continuous scroll" feature, the ability to use hot keys to navigate through the text, and an option to select image resolution for a better reading experience. This may not seem that cool, but believe us...IT IS AWESOME!
The ability to use hot keys to navigate through the text allows for the reader to move through the text quicker. The keys available and their uses are: the "up" arrow key to scroll up to the top of the page, the "down" arrow key to scroll to the bottom of the page, and the "left" and "right" arrow keys to jump to the previous or next pages.
The new continuous scroll feature allows a reader to click and drag to zoom through the book (or jump to a particular page in mind). This feature will also pre-load pages on either side of the page the user is currently reading, in order to allow for a normal reading experience. This will also help eliminate that a user no longer experiences unwanted loading time while continuously reading from page-to-page.
Our image resolution feature can be found by clicking on the settings button. This selection of HIGH, MEDIUM, or LOW resolutions allow the reader to choose the image quality of the text on the readers screen.
