While I have a love-hate relationship with e-Books. There’s no denying how convenient they are to carry around especially when you have a plethora on a device, their inexpensiveness as you can get a gazillion for free and the top-notch user friendly experience most of them provide amongst many pecks but, the pros/cons of e-books or its readers is not the thesis of this post(That will probably come in another post).
Here are 5 awesome book apps I think any bookworms should have + 1 more app that should have made the list.
Goodreads is beyond amazing.It is the perfect place to keep track of what you’re reading and to also reviews books. I’ve met fellow bookworms on there and I enjoy browsing through personalized recommendations based on previous reads and favorite genres. It is the world’s largest site for book recommendations and it has over 20 million members. I just wish they had half stars rating though. You can find me on Goodreads here.
This is one of the first apps I download on any new device I own especially laptops. I used to think I needed a kindle device to use itsmile. It is the one-stop shop for all your reading needs. Quickly and easily scan through books to find a particular topic or character to explore. Do you know you can also share quotes and passages on Twitter and Facebook while reading; look up words on Google and Wikipedia without leaving the app?
Best Feature: Lets you check out the first chapter of a book for free before you buy it.
Wattpad saved my life at a time when I had reading wanderlust(An app I was using at that time just up and stopped working). A time when I had finished reading every book(eBooks and prints) I had and couldn’t buy new reads. ”It is focused on storytelling, it allows you to read 75 million different stories and upload your own regardless if you’re a published writer or novice. The app enables you to have a more involved reading experience; you can contact the writer and see who else is reading the same stories.
Best Feature: You can read offline and at absolutely no cost.
Although this app is only available for android devices, it remains on my apps wishlist. SnapTell is an efficient app that makes your Android phone a handy mobile-shopping platform.
Best Feature: Given a snapshot of a CD, DVD, book, or video-game cover, SnapTell delivers product information, prices, and shopping links.
I love me a good romance story any day, any time. Aside storybooks like little red riding hood, puss in boot, thumbolina and the enid blyton books that I read as a child. Finding my mum’s stack of mills and boons hidden away was the best thing that happened to me. Before I digress, the ease of getting all I want in one place is why this dear app will always be on my phone.
Best Feature: Flash Sales, thousands of free eBooks up for grabs and the best, best part; paranormal series!!!
Okadabooks App should have made this list. But for some reasons it didn’t. #StayWithMe as I share with you reasons why in my next post.
What’s your favourite book app and why?
