A new skimming feature has recently been added to the Amazon Kindle eReader to provide consumers with the same reading experience they would have if they were flipping through the pages of a physical novel. The feature -- called Page Flip -- allows users to turn the pages the touch of their finger and see the pages physically flip, to simulate a true reading experience.
While eReaders provide a slew of benefits with digital reading, nostalgic consumers often enjoy the ability to flip pages and revert back to them physically. The Page Flip brings back this experience by showing the edges of the virtual book pages before and after, allowing users to tap to move to them. The pages also flip rather than seamlessly slide into one another for a more realistic reading experience.
