Sedikit gambaran kepada anda mengenai pelancaran ebuku INTAN yang dibangunkan oleh E- Sentral telah berlangsung pagi tadi dalam majlis INTAN Digital Exploration 2015. Pelancaran ini dirasmikan oleh Tan Sri Mohamad Zabidi Zainal, Ketua Pengarah JPA. Besama ini juga, ada video pelancaran INTAN bagi majlis tersebut.
We had done some updating to our current Android application to further enhance your reading experience. Check out our new update by installing them from your Google Play!
Without further ado, let’s move on to the new features:
1. New Sorting
Previously, you were limited to sorting based on Downloaded, Title and Author. Now your ebooks will be automatically sorted based on your recent purchase.
Oh, don’t worry about the missing Downloaded feature. We will get to it now.
2. New Filter
Our saviour from getting overloaded with both downloaded and purchased ebooks, Downloaded filter is moved here. Now you can also filter according to ebook’s category.
3. Custom Tab made easier !
Previously, you have to tap + button on top, then tap red button at the bottom corner, then go up AGAIN to search for your ebooks right? Not anymore!
Now you tap the red button on top, then add the ebooks on the shelf. All happening at the top of your screen, less radio exercise for your hand and finger.
To create a custom tab, tap the red button on top right corner of your screen.
Type the name you wish for the tab, then click “Create Tab”. For demonstration purposes, I named it “Test”.
Now you have your custom tab ready. Start adding ebooks to your personal tab by clicking + button inside the rectangle.
Here you can search for ebooks you wish to add. Let’s say I want to add “HARD CORE” by Megat Ishak, so I click on HARD CORE…
Now HARD CORE has been added to my “Test” custom tab. All happening at top half of the screen.
4. Image zooming made easier.
We know, our image zooming kinda sucks last time, so now we’ve improved it. For demonstration, I’ve used our e-comic (don’t judge guys, I love Maze Runner).
Now make a spread gesture using your thumb and index finger to zoom.
Some of you are rolling eyes by now and said, “Now the picture is too big, I want to see the first panel!”, perhaps with a couple of curses and boos. Yes, you can. Still using two fingers, drag your finger across the screen to move the picture around.
There you go, first panel! You can move around your pictures now. To zoom out, pinch the screen until the picture goes back to its original size.
And that’s all for now. Anything you find from our new update? We would love to hear feedback from you! Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment at this thread.
Some of our visitors may already know that we also have English titles on E-Sentral. And we are expecting more soon!
Currently, with some agreements from abroad, we have some romance ebooks from well-known author, Barbara Cartland. If you don’t know who that is, she wrote romance best-sellers in 50s and 60s. Perhaps you can try mentioning that name to your mother and see if she knows her. There are also works from author such as Michael Gilbert, John Creasey and Benjamin Hulme Cross if you are a fan of mystery or crime fiction. Classics lit fans would also find enjoyment in our tale collections such as The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Emma and many more.
And that’s not the end of it. If We also have recipe books from famous chefs such as Jacques Pépin, Giuliano Hazan, Gesine Bullock-Prado, Gee Charman, Betty Saw and Chef Wan. For Western comic fans, we also have comics series of Doctor Who, Assassin’s Creed, The Walking Dead, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Maze Runner, Garfield, Kung fu Panda, Strawberry Shortcake and many more.
Lastly, we also have a series of ebooks relating to game cheats and walkthrough. If you are still struggling with Angry Bird and Assassin’s Creed, then perhaps you can check these out.

If you realised, we are sort of going missing this week. So where were we?
eSentral was in BAHTERA, which was held from 19th-20th August in KL Convention Center. It was a gathering event for all Bumiputera entrepreneurs to share their ideas and success stories. It was a great event with as much as 4,000 visitors. We had a lot of fun talking with people who are interested in digital books and digital publishing software, eStudio.
Then, our co-founder and managing director, Faiz al-Shahab was on air this morning at BFM 89.9
