The Best Reading Apps
Reading is a great way to get inspiration because it can take you to new worlds – reading is so important that it even has its own celebration on World Book Day. And although books are more than just books – some are also great examples of design – opting for digital tools will help you take care of the planet a little more. In this article, we offer you a selection of the best reading apps.
Digital e-book Readers
While there are many applications that will transform almost any device into a book, investing in a tool such as a digital e-book reader can be a great option that will simplify your life – maybe not your whole life, since you will still have to carry out banking procedures or take the subway during rush hour from time to time-.
While they’re not the main focus of this article, we’d like to mention a few briefly.
- Kindle Touch e-book reader with integrated light
As mentioned in the heading above, one of the great benefits offered by this reader is that it has an integrated light so you can read without tiring your eyes. What’s more, it’s very lightweight. The big drawback is that it may not offer the best resolution.
- Kindle Oasis
Not only does this have an integrated light, but you can also adjust it to your liking. Another great plus is its ergonomic design and its water resistance.
- Koba Clara HD
Super lightweight, good value for money in terms of its features, adjustable light, and the possibility of adjusting the color temperature. In addition, it has a built-in dictionary.
There are a lot of applications that you can use to read your favorite books on your devices whatever your preference – whether Android, iOS, Windows, tablets, or computers. And although it might be preferable to use an e-book as they are less harmful to the eyes, here are the best apps available.
This digital reading platform stands out from its competitors because it offers you the opportunity to buy your favorite books from different sites, so you can compare prices and choose where to source them.

Another great advantage offered by this reader is that you can take a look at each book before buying it.

Another great point in Basmo’s favor is that it will help you generate a reading habit since you will be able to set reminders to read every day.
More Than Words
Let’s talk now about other options related to reading, but not necessarily focused only on books.
There are many alternatives when it comes to reading your favorite books from any device. However, Book Funnel has a special quality because it brings you the works of new and unknown writers.

This is probably one of the best applications as it allows you to import your comics from other devices, offers great compatibility in terms of file formats, and has a variety of tools that make reading easier, a special mode for reading manga, and much more.
