The depth of each richly designed spine tells you whether a book is short, long or in-between.

Skim down the pile of books. Tap to choose. A highlight reminds you which title you were last reading.

Lose yourself almost instantly in the story. GizReader is quick. Its type is crisp and clear, beautifully set for reading pleasure. Each book’s formatting is checked and polished, compared where necessary against multiple sources.

Pages turn realistically, their edges following your finger, with a satisfying flip sound. (Unless you turn the sound off.) Alternatively, you can tap or swipe to turn pages instantly.

When you return to a book, GizReader remembers your place, even if you have resized the text. (Choose from three text sizes in your iPhone’s Settings App.) You can also see from the progress bar where you are in the story.
