Love it!

Without a doubt, the best mobile reading app available without exception. The only one I found that will allow you to change font and background to any color. As well as any a font font type. It is also the only app that scrolls vertically without page swipes and will auto scroll at variable speeds.

Best Reader Available

Now that they've fixed this (an earlier "upgrade" broke it), uBooks xl is again the best ebook reader available. It allows infinite colors or images as backgrounds and infinite colors of text, has day and night versions, with helpful options for line spacing, page width, point size, font and margins. The new version once again puts this at the top.

Needs IOS 8-8.1 update!

Since iFlow closed up shop, this has been favorite ebook reader. I just purchased an iPhone 6+ with IOS 8.1 and uBooks no longer remembers what book I am reading or where I am in the book. Please fix and I'll change my rating to 5 stars.
