Recommendations for an e-Reader app (Kindle, eBook, iBooks, etc)?

Postby Fantom » Sat Nov 07, 2015 7:30 pm

Hiya,

Interested in everyone's feedback regarding e-reader apps. I dont want to buy new hardware but want to be able to read on a phone, tablet, etc.

Any suggestions?
Cheers,

Bill

kindle has the advantage of syncing across multiple devices, and very access to spending your money, but is otherwise unremarkable as a reader. MegaReader is my favourite on idevices, but i miss the syncing.

What format are the books you want in? If you get them from Amazon then you might as well use the Kindle app. If you have them as files from whatever source then just search the store for ereaders.

I use one called Freda because it syncs, but also allows me to access any format ebooks I have. I just copy my ebook files to a cloud share on onedrive and it will download/sync from there.

SImplest thing is to just try a bunch of them out and see what you like.

I just use the Kindle and ibook apps on my iPad - copy books to drop box or email them to myself and then open in the appropriate app. They are much of a much - reading on a kindle is far superior to the iPad but I cant be bothered carrying around two devices.

To organise the book collection on the PC I use calibre e book manager - works like a charm and even converts the format to the right one if your downloading it onto your kindle.
