This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
【Premier Reader】: This app costs $6, and our users are paying for it each and every day. Why? It is the best Gutenberg Reader: beautiful images, elegant formatting, and graceful page turning. Contents live from Project Gutenberg with last-minute update, more than 50,000 most important books ever published in history. Plus more than 7,000 human-read audio books.
【Audio books】: There are more than 7,000 human-read audio books, all for the price of a cup of coffee. Alternatively you could pay $3-5 for a single audiobook as some of the "Audio app" would ask you to pay.
【Book recommendation】: Every app gives you a list of book recommendation, but where did they find the list? dreamed up in 'lala' land? We base our recommendation solidly on big data, tens of millions of pages actually read by our users. Downloading or page flipping has no effect on the ranking of our recommendation list.
【Number of Books】: No other apps have more Gutenberg books, and many competitors are missing some classic Gutenberg books, and many competitors use outdated data from Gutenberg.
【Reading】: Texts and images are presented by a sophisticated book reader: beautiful presentation, graceful page turning, and the most intelligent Table of Contents (better than any other book reader for the same book).
【Read-along】: Audio and Text are synchronized when possible. You can read, listen, or read-Along, and switch between them at will.
【Export】: Export a book together with bookmarks and the notes you inserted into the book to anyone and any device.
* The PAID version "Gutenberg Books" allows unlimited reading and listening.
What's New in Version 8.5
fixed two bugs showing up in the latest version of IOS
Listen to any of the 50k books!
I was initially skeptical of the claim but was amazed after testing it. Some of popular books are available in both human-read audiobooks and in text-to-speech, but I find the voice of Ava in tts is more than adequate for most of the books.
I now can listen to any of the 50,000+ books when I cannot find time to sit down to read,on the bus, doing chores...
New Version Leaves a Lot to Be Desired
I used to be able to search the Audiobooks by Genre, but now you have to know what you are looking for which makes discovering new authors in your favorite category impossible. Please fix this.
Functionality excellent but too many ad interruptions.
