Its a gorgeous animated effect. I guess the question for me is:
1) does it affect battery life? I turn a lot of pages
2) does the speed (or lack thereof) just end up making me turn it off after a while.

For the record, I do use Stanza's page turn animation now, but set at a pretty quick speed, because I read pretty fast. I used to use just the slide page turn, which is faster, but I do like a bit of eye-candy with my reading experience, it just makes the whole experience more enjoyable to me. But I know a lot of people just want to read without the distractions

Looking forward to your eBook reader app-can always have one more

What I want in an iPhone reader:
1) Full ePub support

2) Multiple page turn options-for example, I have Stanza set to turn pages forward on BOTH edges of the screen, because I rarely go backwards, and I can switch hands while reading while still operating it with one hand. I don't mind using the slower "swipe" if I have to go backwards (and as a usability issue-we did research that showed that most people barely used the page back button when they read-I don't remember the percentage, but it was pretty significant)

3) Well, actually, if you nail those two features down, I'm pretty content
