Ratings and ReviewsSee All
The best app I've come across.
The user interface is great. Tracking progress is easy and everything is simple and compact.
Great app for epub files
Finally I got a solution for reading epub files on a mobile device..!
This app works well and the UI is the best I've seen of any reading app. If only it let you group books into custom categories like ibooks does it would be perfect.
