  • Great App

    By Morghan Vaughn
    Love This app! I love the premise and the layout is very pleasing.
  • I’m actually reading again!

    By Valhallaray
    Yup. This app is excellent. And in my opinion, the paid version is totally worth it. For less than the cost of a mass market paperback, I now have access to an entire library of classics. I’ve been using this app to replace my social media habit, and I’ve already read 3 books, that I might never have considered picking up otherwise! There’s also a “tip jar” where you can encourage the developer. Also, shoutout to Michael, because he does a great job of managing the content. I emailed him about a confusing typo, and he fixed it that same day.
  • bite-sized chunks

    By groovykismet
    I love reading. I can read for hours and days at a time; unfortunately as an adult, who works, goes to school and is a single mom, my time for reading is far and few between. This app is an answer to that need...reading the classics in small chunks for a few minutes at a time. Love it!!
  • Perfect if you like to read more than one book at a time!

    By Kooshky
    I am one of those who likes to read multiple books at once, but never knows when to put one down and pick up another. This app gives me just enough pages of a book, then I can read another. Bonus that it connects to Goodreads! LOVE IT.
  • Wonderful app

    By MisterExploder
    You’ll be reading more than you thought you could in no time. The $2.99 for highlights and reading ahead is absolutely worth it. Reading Shakespeare is great: you’ll realize, after only a few minutes, that the language starts to seem normal without all the footnotes that are usually there to complicate things unnecessarily.
  • Reading stuff I’ve always meant to read

    By cmbrown73
    Really nice app, takes away the work of remembering to read. The app presents the material very nicely and it has a great selection. Good stuff.

    Love the app
  • Good job! Worth the time.

    By Ytinasni
    I’ve always wanted to find time to read “the classics” and now I can do that. All in pre-set, pre-proportioned snippets of indulgence, this app takes away the gap of intimidation projected by these books. I am so happy to be reading such well written, original, and moving stories. All conveniently located on my phone. I can immerse myself within a matter of seconds, any where- any time. I highly recommend this app!
  • Excellent app

    By Jont189
    Really love the concept of this app, as well as the implementation. The design is clean and intuitive, and it’s got me back in a habit of reading everyday. It’s hard to sit down and pick up a book with all of life, but this simplifies and initiates that time for me each morning.
  • Enjoyed

    By ipod geek
    I have enjoyed using Serial Reader for the past few weeks and I ended up purchasing the extra features. Two things I'd love to see addressed; the sync, while it works, is a little off. I complete a serial on my phone and sync. I pick up the iPad and tap sync, and it still shows the serial not completed. I would assume it would state I was done with that one for the day. I would also like to see some marking, a badge or similar on finished books, maybe I'm just getting old but I've read 12 books already and I'm forgetting which ones they were when browsing something new to read. I can just see this getting worse. I'd still like to see the detail for the summary and other similar books, so I wouldn't want them hidden. Update: I just opened this up today from an extended beak and the books I’ve read now have a check mark on them, awesome. I’ll have to check out the sync and if that’s better it will be worth a star bump! Thanks!!
