The best reading app on mobile

Posted by Jennifer Allen on January 21st, 2016

Reading on the move is a great way to spend some time and feel like you’re doing something fun or productive.

While you can stick to tried-and-true solutions like a book or Kindle, there are easier options out there - and you can find all of them on your mobile.

Read on to discover the best reading apps on mobile.

The best

Somewhat predictably, you can’t really beat Amazon’s Kindle app. The store offers access to more than three million books, as well as many audiobooks and exclusive titles.

You can also read newspapers and magazines - as well as customise the experience so it looks exactly how you want. What more could you need?

The rest

Apple’s own solution, iBooks, is pretty good. You can easily browse through extensive content and purchase books using your iTunes credit.

You can choose from seven fonts and three choices of page color, plus it’s easy to bookmark and highlight favorite sections of the text.

Not quite a reading tool but essential nonetheless, Goodreads is a social network for book fans. You can keep track of what you’re reading, view personalized recommendations, and see what your friends are reading too.

Options for writing book reviews are also available and it’s great for when you need motivation to read more, or simply want to discover something new.

Not in the mood for reading but want to hear a story? Audiobooks from Audible is the audiobooks equivalent of Kindle and iBooks.

You can easily explore the catalogue of over 180,000 titles before choosing to listen to one wherever you go. Even if you’re on the treadmill at the gym, you can listen to a story unfold, and the app does a great job of saving your place at all times.
