Here’s what’s new this week :

<h2>More Unlock Animations</h2>
<a href="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/newUnlock.png"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1911" alt="newUnlock" src="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/newUnlock.png" width="500" height="358" /></a>

Unlocking a book is a delightful, surprising experience, and our <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2013/03/21/bookboard-launches-app-to-encourage-children-to-read-more-by-limiting-their-choices/">research has shown that it motivates kids to read more</a>. How can we make it even better?<!–more–>

We’ve<strong> added a variety of unlock sequences</strong>, so that we really capture the element of surprise. We’ll be adding more of these as time goes on, so let us know what your kids respond to, and we’ll make more like it!

<h2>A More Beautiful Reading Experience</h2>
<a href="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/readingBG.png"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1912" alt="readingBG" src="http://bookboard.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/readingBG.png" width="500" height="358" /></a>

We think our reading experience should be simple but elegant – we preserve the original layout of the book, and try to stay out of the way of a great story. But we can always do more to emphasize color and texture in the books you read.

That’s why we’re really happy with a new design rolling out today, which puts <strong>our beautiful books against a natural, softly textured background</strong>. We think it adds depth, causes colors to pop, and makes the experience of reading even more physical and pleasurable for the reader. Like it? Love it? Let us know what you think!

<h2>iPad 1 Performance Upgrades</h2>
We love all iPads, and want to make sure that even older models are in on the fun. With today’s release, we’ve <strong>upgraded Bookboard’s smoothness and responsiveness on the iPad 1</strong>. If you hit any snags with older hardware, please do drop us a line and let us know; we’re always working to make things better on all platforms.
For trial users, all you need to do to get these upgrades is open the Bookboard trial on your iPads, and the new goodies will be lying in wait! Lots more is coming in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned…
