There was a time when hard-cover books were the rage with almost every book reader scourging the market for freshly released books. However, times have changed and technology has evolved to the extent that every aspect of our life is now dictated by the new technology. Book reading is no different. The hardcover books, while still a great collection item, aren't the best option anymore for avid book readers. With mobile phones becoming such an important accessory in our lives, its obvious that having the books that you like on your phone is the best way to keep your thirst for books in check. However, to have a great reading experience, you need to not only have books on your phone but also need a great book reader app. Moon+ Reader is a fine reading app which can make your life easy with its feature-rich design!
Moon+ Reader has a very clean and simple interface and allows you to start book reading as soon as you have decided on which book you want to read. The book reader app's homepage puts all the books in your collection in front of you to choose from. The top of the page shows the recent list where the books you have read recently are displayed. There is also a favorites section where you can add the books you like the most so that they are always accessible directly from the homepage. Moreover, the app also offers quick browsing buttons so that you can load a book from your Dropbox, SD card or the internal storage folder. You can also access the net library directly from the homepage and browse all kinds of books from great book libraries like 'Feedbooks', 'WebNovel.com' and even the app's own 'Moon+ Catalogs'. You can also easily go to your bookmarked page directly from the homepage. An interesting feature within the app and also available on the homepage is its reading statistics. This is frankly very amusing as you can find out your reading speed, your page turning speed, the number of pages you have read on the app, the hours you spend reading every day, the total time you have spent reading books on the app and how many books you have in your collection.
The book reader app's main feature is its interface when it loads a book. Any reader app worth its salt will allow you to easily navigate the book and offer as many options as possible without interfering with the reading experience. This is where Moon+ Reader really works well. The app gives a small tutorial at the beginning to help you understand how you can brighten the screen, change the font size and move between pages by touching on which part of the screen. While it may be a bit difficult to understand this at first but once you get used to the app, these hidden features are really helpful in enhancing the reading experience. The app also has a fine option of allowing you to highlight certain words and passages, look them up in the dictionary and add your own notes over those selected words and passages. The app also has a great inbuilt timer feature which forces you to rest your eyes after an hour so that you don't exhaust yourself.
