Hi,
I am trying to develop an iPhone application to read ePub files.
Is there any direct framework available to develop this? .
I tried to load the contents to a UIWebView by unzipping the ePub file and parsing the "container.xml" file inside the package.
So the contents can be viewed now,but i need to show this as page leaves(just like the native Ebook reader app in ipad).Is that possible ?
How can i capture touch events in uiwebview ?

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Sreelal H

Hi Sreelal,

WebView is the easiest option if you want to render Epub files. You can provide the page curl effect on top of that.
At GitHub there is an example to provide such page leaves effect (most similar to iBook).

You will find something surprising in iOS 5.0

Thanks & Regards
