Apps for Reading Books on Your Phone

Reading books is a valuable and pleasant pastime, but it’s only sometimes possible to carry your favorite novel in paper form. Fortunately, there are apps available for reading books on your phone. Almost everyone has a handy smartphone based on iOS or Android, which can store a whole library of electronic books available at any time. In this article, we’ve collected the best utilities designed to make reading text from the screen as comfortable as possible.

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle is a cross-platform utility from Amazon with access to a proprietary store, providing good opportunities to read books from its own library. Even if you do not have a Kindle, this app comes in handy – it has a concise appearance, allows flexible text display, and can work with bookmarks, quotes, and notes. Your reading progress is synchronized across all devices, so if you have several devices that you frequently use to read books, you can download all Amazon Kindles to them.

Apple Books’ stylish and minimalist reading utility doesn’t boast support for a large number of formats and settings, but it still has everything you need. It has a handy library, instant font changes, and the ability to make quotes and add favorite books or moments to bookmarks. Apple Books automatically switches to a dark theme at night, lets you listen to audiobooks, and instantly syncs with other Apple gadgets. You can start reading on your Mac and continue from the same place on your iPhone or iPad.
