Because there is no telling when you might want to download a certain type of content, it's always good to keep up with media mobile apps.
This collection focuses on apps geared to downloading, storing, and accessing digital eBooks and audiobooks with your mobile device. Using digital eBooks and audiobooks is a great way to spend downtime, especially when it catches you off guard. When looking for an eBook reader or an audiobook player, keep a few features in mind. First, make sure the app has an auto save and resume feature that allows you to pick up where you left off, ideally across devices as well. It is also convenient to have a reader app that lets you annotate and take notes on texts, which will ensure that you will remember key points or just favorite parts of the books you read.
Another option that helps guarantee an app is worth downloading is the ability to import files. Some apps let you download most types of readable content files such as EPUB, PDF, or TXT, which is important when you are considering content from sites like Project Gutenburg. If you are interested in changing font size, presentation mode, screen brightness, and so on, make sure the app has a robust list of customizable options to guarantee you can adjust your settings to your exact preference.
Below are six eBook and audiobook reader apps with a number of these desirable features.
