I downloaded this App for my mother who suffers from Macular Degeneration. Being an avid reader, she was devasted when she could no longer read regular print books. With this app the text of the books can be manipulated to her comfort level and she was exstatic at the fact she could read again! Shes almost through all 20 of the free books and we will most definitely be downloading the Pro version so she can enjoy all the books that bookshare has to offer!

Awesome App!

I downloaded this app for my grandmother and she is loving it! Over the last few years her vision has been decreasing. She was diagnosed with a disease called macular degeneration and unfortunately has had much difficulty reading regular print books. It's nice to see my grandmother get lost in a good book again! She is so pleased with it we will definitely be purchasing the version to access over 250,000 good reads!!!
