With one of the ebook apps on the iPad, it is possible to set page transition to zero. When I tried that, it confused me. One page of text looks just like another page of text. I don't know about other folk, but I NEED a signal that the page has turned and I can start reading from the top again. I now appreciate having a page swish or scroll, even though it isn't technically necessary on my iPad screen.
There has been criticism of the flash of eInk and the artificial page turns in ebook apps, but I think the brain does need some sort of signal. Maybe the programmers knew what they were doing.
