Aldiko Book Reader allows you to turn your phone into a mobile ebook reader. You can download electronic books online and store them in a virtual library on the app.
The collection of titles available to download through Aldiko Book Reader is immense. You can choose from thousands of free and paid-for ebooks from the store. Currently, the selection on offer is based around the collections from Feedbooks.com, All Romance Ebooks, Smashwords and O'Reilly. There's a good mix of genres in Aldiko Book Reader, and plenty of free eBooks to download.
The Aldiko Book Reader store boasts a handy search tool, but unfortunately books are not categorized very well. You cannot browse titles by genre, which is very frustrating if you're a fan of a particular kind of book. It's not completely disordered though, and Aldiko highlights picks such as the New York Times Bestsellers, or a topical collection.
Each book available through Aldiko Book Reader has its own description and image, though you'll need to leave the app in order to view reader reviews.
Managing books you've downloaded in Aldiko Book Reader is a delight. The attractive, iBooks-esque library that houses your ebooks can be ordered by title, author, rating, recent reads, recently finished or recently added.
The viewer itself in Aldiko Book Reader blends the simplicity of flicking side to side to turn pages with several useful features that can be accessed with just a tap of the screen. Tools include text, brightness and orientation controls, plus bookmarking, sharing, a Day/Night mode Go To... option, and one-click access to the contents page.
Although its collection isn't as big as that of Wattpad, Aldiko Book Reader has a nicer user interface, which makes for a very pleasant Android reading experience.
