The New York Public library has just released a great app, available for free at iTunes store called Biblion. This first edition features material covering the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. Users will be able to turn over, zoom in and roam through hundreds of items. I've only been looking at pictures so far, and haven't read any articles but I am definitely loving the design & execution. Such a great concept! The screenshots above and below are from my iPad.
Wish we had programs like these back in school, would've made so many things easier and more enjoyable. Kudos to the NYPL, I was already a huge fan of the buildings and its collection, and this step is the sprinkle on top.
