My iOS App Picks for 2014 — eBook Readers

It’s that time of year again — the year is end­ing, com­ing to a close. And we often take time to look back at things we’ve done. In my case, I thought I’d look back at the iOS apps that have most engaged me over the last year. I’ll basic­ally select a ‘win­ner’ and a […]

A better mobile eBook reader?

It’s been a while since I took a look at what’s cool in the mobile eBook read­er space, as I’ve been quite sat­is­fied with my cur­rent read­ing apps (GoodRead­er for PDFs, Stanza for ePubs) and their use with Cal­ibre (a must-have eBook lib­rary man­age­ment pro­gram). So today I’ve installed Read­Mill — a ‘social’ eBook read­er […]

Kobo eReader updated — much better!

Though it’s a great device, I’ve always been a little dis­ap­poin­ted with my Kobo eRead­er.
