  • MyBook

Today many smartphone and tablet users prefer to read e-books, because it’s really comfortable, portable and affordable. And reading books on iPhone screen, you need to install a special reader application.


The application provided by Apple. It has a great design, and the necessary minimum of parameters that will provide a comfortable reading: here you can adjust the font size, switching between day and night modes, quick search, bookmarks, paper color. Support for PDF, audiobooks, etc.

Of the nuances it is worth highlighting the paucity of supported formats: e-books can only be downloaded in ePub format (but, fortunately, there are no problems with it on sites with electronic libraries), and the lack of page synchronization for downloaded books (this function only works for books purchased in the iBooks Store, where almost no Russian-language works are found).


It’s hard to find a book lover who hasn’t at least heard of the largest book marketplace, LitRes. The application for the iPhone – a combination store and reader, which, incidentally, in practice is extremely convenient, because it has a setting font and size, paper color, and even the indentation parameters, which, for example, in the app iBooks unforgivably large.

But since LitRes is a store, books here can’t be downloaded from third-party sources, either. The app implies that this is where you’ll make your book purchase, and then you can go straight to reading with the ability to automatically sync what you’ve read to your account.


A free handy reader for the iPhone, which stands out because it supports almost all e-book formats, changes the background, orientation, font and size, but most importantly – knows how to switch between pages with the volume buttons (this is the only reader in the review, endowed with this feature).

A nice extra feature is the built-in instructions on how to download e-books from a browser, iTunes or the cloud. By default, the reader already includes some great works of literature.

FB2 Reader

Despite its name, this app is positioned not so much as a reader as a file manager for viewing photos, documents and eBooks on your iPhone.

As a tool for reading e-books, there are almost no complaints to FB2 Reader: here meets a pleasant interface, there are opportunities for fine-tuning, for example, setting the exact color of the background and text for both daytime and nighttime themes. You can also praise the “omnivision”, which allows you to open many formats of books and text documents in the application.

KyBook 2

Extremely successful reader, which has a quality interface, as well as a wide range of settings that can be applied to all books loaded into the application, or just one.

Of the distinctive features worth noting the synchronization of metadata for books, the ability to turn off the “falling asleep” phone while reading, the presence of sounds even when turning pages (they can be turned off), design themes, and a built-in translator.


Perhaps the most interesting representative among the means apps for reading books, which is notable for the fact that all books here are distributed completely free, and everyone can become an author and share their manuscripts with the world.

Wattpad is a mobile app for downloading and reading author stories, articles, fanfics, novels. The app allows you not only to read, but also to exchange thoughts with authors, search for books by recommendation, find like-minded people and new interesting experiences. If you are a book lover, this app will definitely be to your liking.


For those who like to read good books in large quantities will be beneficial to use the MyBook app. It is a subscription-based service for buying books, which includes the functions of a reader. That is, for a certain monthly fee you will have access to many thousands of books of different genres.

As for the reader itself, there are no complaints: a pleasant minimalistic interface, only basic settings for displaying text, the ability to synchronize metadata of books, as well as tracking statistics on the time spent reading, for a selected period.

What do we have in the end? Quality apps for reading books, each with its own distinctive features in the form of free libraries, the ability to subscribe to bestsellers, single book purchases, etc. Whichever reader you prefer, we hope you’ll read more than a dozen books with it.
