Reading to Make a Difference.

iOS application design and development

A la carte subscriptions, for a cause

Read for the Cure® is a mobile application developed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that gives users access to content from several leading publications. Proceeds from the app go to supporting Susan G. Komen's® fight against breast cancer.

Reader Mode

The app provides users the option of viewing content as it is laid out in the publication or via a special reader mode that we custom coded specifically for this application. The reader mode parses EPUB files provided by the publishers. The parsed content is then normalized using best typography practices for an enhanced reading experience.
