    Really nice app, takes away the work of remembering to read. The app presents the material very nicely and it has a great selection. Good stuff.

  • Good job! Worth the time.

    I’ve always wanted to find time to read “the classics” and now I can do that. All in pre-set, pre-proportioned snippets of indulgence, this app takes away the gap of intimidation projected by these books. I am so happy to be reading such well written, original, and moving stories. All conveniently located on my phone. I can immerse myself within a matter of seconds, any where- any time. I highly recommend this app!
  • Excellent app

    By Jont189
    Really love the concept of this app, as well as the implementation. The design is clean and intuitive, and it’s got me back in a habit of reading everyday. It’s hard to sit down and pick up a book with all of life, but this simplifies and initiates that time for me each morning.

    I have enjoyed using Serial Reader for the past few weeks and I ended up purchasing the extra features. Two things I'd love to see addressed; the sync, while it works, is a little off. I complete a serial on my phone and sync. I pick up the iPad and tap sync, and it still shows the serial not completed. I would assume it would state I was done with that one for the day. I would also like to see some marking, a badge or similar on finished books, maybe I'm just getting old but I've read 12 books already and I'm forgetting which ones they were when browsing something new to read. I can just see this getting worse. I'd still like to see the detail for the summary and other similar books, so I wouldn't want them hidden. Update: I just opened this up today from an extended beak and the books I’ve read now have a check mark on them, awesome. I’ll have to check out the sync and if that’s better it will be worth a star bump! Thanks!!
  • Great Fun!

    I look forward to it each day. Thanks for the terrific app!
  • Excellent motivation

    By JunkinLPC
    I really enjoy waking up and having a bite sized piece of good literature to read each day. I also like that there is a meter to measure what kind of a streak I am on, which motivates me to keep it at 100 percent. There is a wide variety of books to choose from, and it helps me get through some of the more difficult reading, such as Dantes Inferno.
  • Easy way to read great books!

    I love this app so far!
  • Love this app! It keeps me reading daily

    By Megandyson
    This is a fantastic app! After using it to read one book I bought the upgrade to paid version because it just simply is that good. I love how it sets the book out in blocks of time under 20 minutes For me to read each day. This is practical and easy for a busy mom like me. The books are free! Can’t get any better then that! I recommend this app to the reader who’s just too busy to read, once you have this app, you will find the time! Trust me!
  • Amazing!
