I support the digital transition of libraries... if the transition is delayed it could possibly contribute to the decline of the library, in particular, school libraries. A collective initiative to promote the digital transition of school libraries is needed so that the public has a better understanding of the importance of the library's role in the development of a global society.

"Every once in a while an iOS device or app will get stuck in the wrong orientation, unresponsive to rotating the device and it either stays in portrait or horizontal mode, despite every effort to rotate the device any which direction. Though this seems to happen more often on the iPad than the iPhone or iPod touch, it can still occur on every iOS device and with just about any app."

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price.
