BookTrack brings movie quality soundtracks to books



     BookTrack is a new technology which lets you experience books in a whole new way. By adding sound effects, musical score  and ambient audio, readers are immersed in the sounds of the story, adding a whole new layer to the reading experience. 


     As you read, a pointer on the side of the page moves. By double clicking on a word, you can ensure that the soundtrack is matched to the storyline as you read at your own pace. 


     There are currently a few books on the App Store for iOS devices which you can download and experience, with more books to be released soon.
