The Freading application is for reading EPUB books and PDF books. The application was developed for users of the Freading Ebook Service.
The Freading (free reading) Ebook Service was developed by Library Ideas, LLC and is sold to libraries of all types around the world. End users are registered cardholders of participating libraries. Check with your local library for participation.
The end user should use their browser to navigate the library website, then download the book from a library website into this application. Once in the application, the EPUB or PDF book can be explored and read.
The Freading application is designed to lend full support for Adobe DRM and uses Adobe ID for Authentication.
The Freading application includes many features that you would expect for a good reading experience such as tap or swipe to turn pages, remembering the last page read, and selectable text size.
What's New in Version 2.4
Https security updates.
Decent interface, but this app lags a lot when trying to highlight, and sometimes when turning the page. So it slows me down a lot when reading.
Also, it doesn't have different colors for highlighting (only one color).
My local library uses this app, so keeping it for now. Hopefully, improvements will be made in these areas.
Service is garbage, app is garbage
Whoever is behind this app and the service behind it has obviously given up on it. Neither has changed or improved in years. Freading is the source of last resort.
It's easy to navigate, but the app keeps crashing and closing, so it's terribly frustrating when trying to read with this app.
