Check out what the press has said about the Worldreader app:
“eBooks like Pride and Prejudice and A Tale Of Two Cities are at the fingertips of thousands of kids who would have never had the opportunity to read them before, and Worldreader wants that to grow quickly. Along with ebooks, the organization has shared educational information about HIV/AIDS and malaria, instantly turning the device into a life-saver as well as a learning tool.” - TechCrunch
“Since 2010, the non-profit organization Worldreader has provided school children in a number of developing countries with access to free digital books through donated Kindle ereaders. Recently, it has begun to publish the ebooks via a mobile phone-based ereader.” - BBC
“In August and September, over 50,000 people used Worldreader Mobile eReader to read information about Ebola provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. “ - allAfrica
“It is not hyperbole to suggest that if every person on the planet understood that his or her mobile phone could be transformed – easily and cheaply – into a library brimming with ebooks, access to text would cease to be such a daunting hurdle to literacy.” - The Guardian
