A collection of 10 Edgar Allan Poe short stories served as the starting point for iClassics Productions, and it was shortly followed by the iLovecraft, iWilde, iDoyle and iDickens collections. There are currently six collections that readers can enjoy in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese. These are available on iTunes (AppStore), Google Play and Amazon.

About the format:
iClassics Collection represents a new reading format that engages the reader, who must interact with various elements to proceed with the story. Illustrations, videos, sound effects, animations, music, and other elements all make the reading an enriching experience. As David G. Forés, creative director, says: 'Our contribution is basically providing a new format for both classic and contemporary literature, creating an interactive environment adapted to the habits of young people', and he highlights: "It is very common that people think we do e-books, but we do not, we create enriched books. The iClassics are applications with endless creative possibilities, far more than the already conventional e-books".
Its use in the classroom:
iClassics Productions promotes the productive use of electronic devices beyond the usual games, an element of disruption, with a significant contribution to teaching, with many opportunities to work in the classroom. For example, in some schools in the US, where Edgar Allan Poe is required reading, iClassics is used as a tool to study the classic mystery tales of the writer.
