You can read pdfs on your tablet. But what if you want to open Epub files? Pdf readers do not support Epub files so moon+ reader application is a heaven for Epub lovers. The application allows users to open Epub files and op. Not only it allows them to read but also to view it in their own context. It allows day and night versions of them so they can read without getting strain on the eyes.
Functionality of moon+ reader:
moon+ reader has simple functions. It has a search bar through which user can find free books in at least 4 libraries from around the web and can read them anywhere as the files are downloaded on the tablet. We personally feel moon+ reader is best for small smart phone as the application can adjust the color of text and background as per user settings and small smart phones are not considered good for pdf files. Nevertheless, in case of this application, it shows fonts of Epub files according to the screen size that helps smart phone users to read books on smart phones.
