iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Brian Hudson on February 16th, 2011
Our rating: starstarblankstarblankstarblankstar :: AVOIDABLE

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: UNINSPIRED

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Brian Hudson on September 10th, 2010
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: JUST ANOTHER FREE BOOK READER
