We at Mac Rental Company are pretty avid readers and with the Christmas break fast approaching, giving most of us a week off we thought we would offer up, as a Christmas present from us to you, our best Apps for reading. Of course, not to fear your favourite guys at the Mac Rental Company will be open throughout the Christmas break and we will only be happy to help with any renting or fixing of MacBooks, iPods or iPhones. Best Apple Apps for bookworms
We couldn’t really start this list without referencing iBooks, Apple’s very own brand of App. Offering a vast number of books and enabling you to read from genres raging from classics, bestsellers as well as up and coming authors, it really is a nifty little app. As if that weren’t enough it also boasts audiobooks making it one of the most accessible Apps on the market. And for those of you who are typographically inclined it also has a choice from eight fonts whilst you can also adjust the screen brightness and even use the auto night theme for optimal eye comfort (important for big readers.)
For every Austin or J.K Rowling fan (and frankly who can blame them), there is a reader who desires something a little more hipster, a little more alternative. Which is where the fantastic Inkitt comes in mightily useful. Covering every genre from mystery, romance and action, you can even download your favourite books to read them offline. As if that wasn’t enough it also provides a personalised reading recommendation according to your previous choices, making it that much easier to find the right book for you.
The Oxford Dictionary
You may laugh and call us geeks, but we are proud to use the Oxford Dictionary. Unsure as to the meaning of apoptosis? Or perhaps you aren’t quite what a boffola is….then the oxford dictionary is on hand to help you out. Boasting 350,000 words, phrases and meanings as well as audio pronunciations for those words you want to throw into every day conversation, it is an invaluable resource and also completely free.
Any bookworm worth their salt knows just how fantastic the Goodreads App can be. One of the most wonderful social apps it allows you to list books you’ve read, as well as those you want to as well as leave reviews and join discussion groups. One of the most powerful facets of this App is the ability to read reviews and see if your book is worth reading….we would recommend this powerful App on the iPad Pro…giving you some serious space and screen resolution to read the powerful content.
Every bookworms nightmare….you are out and about and pick up a book that looks interesting, but you can’t be sure if it’s worth the investment. So…you pick up your handy iPhone and simply scan the book cover which then takes a picture of the book cover and allows you to scan the barcode. Once you have done this you will get a description of the book, reader ratings as well as information on the best prices. A must have for any bookworm.
