Ampersand is the app designed specifically for reading poetry, displaying poems the way the poet intended. Line breaks, stanza breaks, indents and artwork display with complete fidelity to the printed page. Ampersand allows you to scale the displayed book page to width, height or fit to the iPad screen: zoom in on lines or stanzas. A horizontal swipe gesture turns the page: a vertical swipe scrolls the page. Turning the iPad to horizontal automatically scales the page to the full width of the screen, enlarging the type. Or you can set Ampersand to display two-page spreads.
Ampersand comes with free monthly content.
Ampersand will offer poetry books for sale and subscriptions to literary magazines the summer of 2011.

Future monthly free content:
