  • An ebook reader surpasses its competitiors with the interface

    The app is performing well on all neccessary features as an ebook reader such as search, bookmarking, dictionary and highlighting.
    A good choice of reading education related materials in iBook format.
    It has a execellent interface, stylish and neat, so users would not be distracted when reading, the app runs smoothly and there are sufficient modes allowed in settings. The page flipping animation is beautiful.
    It would be better to have more books to choose from in the store.

  • Tips for using the product

    Books could be read to users using a read aloud feature for books with that, or by Siri otherwise.
