Studies have proven that when a person hears what they're reading, as they are reading it, retention and comprehension of the content is enhanced by up to 38%.

iPhone owners will soon be able to not only read many of their favorite literary works; they'll be able to simultaneously hear them too. iScroll, developers of the evolutionary duel-sensory reading application by the same name and Blackstone Audio, publishers of classic to contemporary audio books have announced the re-lease of over 400 of Blackstone's most popular titles as iScroll Apps.
Titles such as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, David Copperfield and the Grammy nominated Alice Through the Looking Glass and A Christmas Carol are among the many one can now enjoy with both their eyes and their ears as iScroll Applications.
iScroll founder and President Shawn Yazdani created the iScroll App as a means to help readers retain and get more of what they read, "Studies have proven that when a person hears what they're reading, as they are reading it, retention and comprehension of the content is enhanced by up to 38%."
Retention and comprehension aren't the only upsides of reading on an iScroll App. Readers who want to find reference or validation of content can click directly to Wikipedia or Google. Sections of content can be forwarded, saved, book marked and emailed.
Titles lasting under 20-hours in length will sell for $9.99; longer running titles will be $14.99. Those interested can visit the iScroll website for demonstration samples and more information.
Yazdani describes the iScroll experience as a new level of reading, "With an iScroll App, as you're reading the words, you're hearing them as the author intended. Every nuance and inflection. Your eyes, instead of just looking at content, are in concert with the narrative. The reader sets their own pace so following a storyline is easier and you get even more caught up in it. With both senses focused on the content, never ever gets lost in the translation."
