iPad app, Lindoc is different from other social reading applications in the way that it focuses on education aiming at social learning platform. Lindoc allows readers to buy and view e-textbook and share knowledge of them.

If readers using the application adds comments in a section that they have difficulty to understand, the comments are to be shared with other readers who have the same textbook. Also it has Twitter-like follow features letting readers follow users who add beneficial comments.
