Best 7 E-Reader Apps for Smartphones and Tablets

After this, for anyone who wanted to read digitally, the only way was through these e-readers which had no other functionality other than books. The consumer was then provided with a multi-purpose e-reader that could double as a tablet, until the consumer demanded that purchasing this device all together was not worth it due to its limited function.

This is when applications for smartphones and tablets were created that were made to be compatible to e-reading. In app form, instead of the whole tablet, the reader is able to enjoy the books he prefers digitally and without having to purchase new devices.

  • Aldiko – the number one e-book reader app available to Android users for free. This app allows book purchases as all e-readers do, but also allows the reader to download epub or PDF files which are free from the internet. For better comfort and functionality, Aldiko enables the user to adjust font, color, alignment, line spacing, and bookmark pages. This app even has a built in dictionary. 
  • Zinio – another free app available for Android and iOS. This e-reader has the standard functionalities paired with the provision of a digital news stand with articles and magazines available every day. Zinio can be linked to Facebook so after you read an item, you can share your thoughts and opinions on it.
  • Scribd – this e-reader offers a lot of variation form your usual books and magazines by also offering recipes, DIY’s, business presentations, analytic reports, and spreadsheets. It also enables the user to share information or text either online or offline. 
  • Feedly – this is a multi-function e-reader that provides access not just to e-books but to YouTube and blogs as well. It also has an organizational quality by categorizing every item downloaded into groups for easy navigation and searching. Available for Android and iOS.
  • Comics– this app is free to iOS and Android users and provides the ultimate comic fix for DC and Marvel lovers with a selection not just from those but from other comics as well amounting to over 30,000 in app selections. 
  • Wattpad – this e-reader provides all the functionalities of an e-reader with the customizing elements as well. It also allows authors to update their work and your downloaded e-book automatically. What makes this app unique is its ability to allow the user to upload his own work onto the system making it available to a possible audience.
  • Instapaper– this app works perfectly while offline and has customizable features that include font, color, lighting, spacing, and such. It also has an online option where it can connect to social media and you can comment and share your views and opinions on what you have just read.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
