Imagine what it might cost to purchase more than one hundred thousand books. Imagine how much space these volumes would take up. Fortunately for book lovers there is Wattpad app that allows them to publish, read and share as many books as they would like to on their mobile device, and all entirely for free.
This app allows the user to browse for titles in several ways, they can look at “What’s New” which shows the thousands of new works added to the database. They can see what others are reading and downloading in the “What’s Hot” section as well. Users of the app can also look at all of the “Recommended Books” or they can simply search by title, author or keyword to find something to read.
The app supports up to twenty different languages as well, which means it can also be a great way to improve foreign language skills. Viewing the eBooks is an entirely customizable experience and settings for font types, sizes and colors are included. The speed of page turning can be set to fully automated. When the user of the app needs to take a break from their reading they can insert the handy bookmark and then speed scroll upon their return.
Although there are a wide array of eBook readers for those using Android, Blackberry, Nokia, Palm, Symbian, Windows Mobile, iPhone and iPod Touch devices, this is one of the few that offers entirely cost-free content and downloads.
Users of this app are encouraged to visit the official website to upload their own original stories.
If you have a vacation planned and love to read while on holiday but don’t want to fill your suitcase with large heavy books or you would simply like to begin carrying around a full library of famous books to read at your leisure, we recommend this app.
