What can you use the app for?

Small Demons is a cataloguing site that takes the nouns found within a book and creates a sort of wiki for the book. The nouns are hyperlinked and then connect users to other books that feature the object. For example, if a book mentions Elvis Presley, the user can click on that link and then be taken to a list of other works that feature Elvis. When users first register and log into Small Demons, they will be take to a page that provides a summary of the book. There's a "Buy" and a "Like" button for every book. As a user scroll down a book page they will see images of the people and the place mentioned in the book. Additionally, the music, movies, TV, objects, events, weapons and more are all catalogued for a work. When users click on an item they will be taken to an "information" page of the object. They can also see a sentence for the context of how the object was mentioned in the book. Users can then see a list of related items featured in the book as well. Users can search for books, items or pretty much anything that they want to find within the context of a text.
