Kindle—the most popular eBook readers in the world—offers a wide selection of books, magazines and newspapers, making it a comprehensive eBook reader app for smartphones and tablets. Also available on Kindle reading devices, the best part about the app is that you don’t have to own a Kindle device to enjoy the books on offer. It is available on both Android and iOS devices.
Powered by technology from Amazon, Kindle allows you to sync your last read page, bookmarks, highlights and notes across all devices. It also includes a built-in dictionary that makes it easy to look up new words while reading.
Aldiko Book Reader is a great alternative to some of the more famous eBook reader apps. The app supports PDFs and its own ePub format in which you can find thousands of books. It is the perfect e-reader for books in PDF and ePub formats.
Since Aldiko Book Reader does not take up memory, it will not automatically save a book. But you can import the book to its virtual shelf, which allows you to save your reading session. Aldiko offers a great reading experience with its extensive features including options to adjust font size, font face, backgrounds, as well as settings to suit the reader’s needs.
Cool Reader, as the name suggests, is indeed super-cool. It offers a fully customizable palette, text formatting for any font size, and extra smooth scrolling that makes reading a pleasure. It is probably the only e-reader app that provides text-to-speech for free.

Supporting a wide range of file formats, such as ePub, fb2, html, rtf, txt and more, Cool Reader also provides information on page count, percentage read, and chapter marks at the top of the screen.
