Spiral Scout developed eReader for Benchmark Education, a leading education publisher just outside New York City. eReader is a visual tool for education professionals, similar to Microsoft Powerpoint that allows students to have a deep and rich experience while reading. Teachers can enhance the classroom experience by presenting e-books to the class with custom narration, drawing, and zooming. eReader was built for desktop but is also suited for iPad and mobile devices.
