This collection of apps focuses on applications geared towards downloading, storing and accessing digital eBooks and audiobooks with your mobile device. Digital eBooks and audiobooks are great ways to not only spend downtime, but also compensate for times when free time catches you off guard — like waiting for transportation or meeting delays.
When looking for an eBook reader or an audiobook player it is important to keep a few features in mind. First off, you need to make sure the application you are downloading has an auto save and resume feature that allows you to pick up where you left off, ideally across devices. This feature is handy when you don’t have the time, or focus, to finish a book in one sitting. It is also convenient to have a reader app with the ability to annotate and take notes on texts; this will ensure that you will remember key points or just favorite parts of the books you read. Another option that helps guarantee an app is worth getting is the ability to import files. Some apps let you download most types of readable content files like EPUB, PDF or TXT; this is important when you are downloading content from sites like Project Gutenburg.
Also, if you are interested in customizing font size, presentation mode, screen brightness etc., it is a good idea to make sure the app has a robust list of customizable options to guarantee you can adjust your settings to your exact preference.
Below are six eBook and audiobook reader apps that possess a lot of these desirable qualities; finding the right eBook or audiobook reader app is completely up to your preferences.
