Night Mode
For pilots or people that work in dark areas it has a night mode that inverts the document and can dim down the screen with an additional software layer until it’s almost completely dark. This is already used today in many cockpits around the world.

Creative Notes uses advanced caching to be that fast. You get a thumbnail overview page and a bottom bar to navigate between pages.

Bookmarks can be added per-page and bookmarked pages will be specially marked in the thumbnail overview. A long-press to the bookmark icon shows the bookmark controller where bookmarks can be edited or even renamed.

Page Transitions and Dual Page Mode
Creative Notes has 3 different page Transition styles, each of it in a horizontal or a vertical mode: Magazine-like side-scrolling, Safari-like continuous scrolling or Page Curl. You can choose to show only one or two pages, optionally also with a cover page. The document can be anchored to the screen height or width.
