Thanks to you both for your valublue input.

My plan was to use the same design for both using custom button controls vs

The app does center around a book, but its not just that...there is a lot
of functionality around it for the student.

I'll try to make sure it looks unique enough to not look like android and
not look like ios :)  That should work.
