App: Moon+ Reader Pro v4.5.3
Category: Books & Reference
Moon+ Reader Pro is a stylish and complete solution for reading nearly any type of eBook or text format you will likely encounter. It is my favorite app for viewing written media, which actually made it fun to start reading again on my tablet, given the many interesting features. Moon+ Reader Pro offers the new Material Design look with both light and dark modes, giving you a choice depending on your environment, and offers a streamlined interface for speed. A major convenient feature is the ability to read stored eBook collections on DropBox and Google Drive; storing bookmarks on the cloud, as well. This means that you can free up space on your devices and easily pick up where you left off, no matter which device you choose to use. If your eyes get tired or you find yourself lazy, there is full voice support to read the material to you and even an optional periodic toast reminding you to take a break, along with automated page scrolling. You may also change the background to several included colors and textures with most formats, and along with the optional page flipping animations, can closely resemble an actual book. There is also a dual page mode for landscape use which will adapt to your ergonomic preferences and reading styles.
The amount of options available are numerous as you discover more of what this amazing application has to offer. It makes studying a breeze with varied colors for highlighting and annotations of words or selections, along with full support for several dictionaries to obtain definitions at a press of a word. There is an optional toolbar with several settings that you can fully customize to your liking, which sits comfortably below the page and offers important information such as page numbers, time and the like. You can then create function buttons for fast navigation and quick access to certain tasks for your convenience; either being static or in auto-hide varieties. There is a password protection feature included so that your material doesn't end up in the wrong hands. Statistics are logged as you read through your library, which can also be reset at any time. It will also display the amount of words you read over time and give you a words per minute rating, which I find interesting as I love statistics in general.
Moon+ ensured that your reading experience can be custom tailored to your liking, no matter what scenario you might come up with. The amount of features and options are simply too numerous to list in this review and are fun to discover on your own as you peruse the interface with your favorite media. I have a wealth of apps on my devices that I find to be of very high caliber; this is certainly one of them as it exists on all my devices as a required app that is used frequently. I really struggled to even come up with a con below, but I would like to see more cloud services other than the two which are currently supported. The developer releases updates periodically to enhance what is already offered and to implement new features occasionally, giving this fine application the support and care it so well deserves. If you love to read, or are even thinking about starting again, this is the application of choice for Android; I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone as it's simply done right and properly.
