A library application for digital books (my final graduation project). The app is intended for both touch devices and personal computers. The app organizes the books on your device in a visual-informative way and reflects you're attributes as a reader. Once you open the app. it displays your library inventory (number of books, writers, genres and languages in your collection) and provides an easy sorting and organization menu. You can organize your library by genres, languages and almost any character you choose (such as: year of publication, publisher house etc.) and colour code your books so you can distinguish between them by any pivoting point you choose. The color driven infographic nature of the library allows you to follow your invent history by genres, languages etc. and form your own identity as a reader - The colors you choose to color code, the parameters upon you choose to color code by etc. all of these create the background image of your application and create a unique “barcode” that distinguishes you from everyone other reader. Another aspect of the app. is it's ability to become a social application in which you can share your impressions with your friends and hand in hand read theirs. (Less developed feature in the project). The app is in the Hebrew language for the Hebrew speaking user to allow full personalization.
