Constant Reader is NOT an E-Reader, it's a Reading List Manager. You want to start keeping better track of all the books you've read, and Constant Reader will make that easier for you! If you're looking for a more social app, give Goodreads a try - but if you want a concise list of books by your favorite authors, the ability to backup your data to your own account without being subject to email spam, or any of the other great features Constant Reader has to offer - then this is the app for you.
Constant Reader is available exclusively on IOS devices and is intended (and appropriate) for book lovers of all ages. This FREE version is limited to 1 new title added per day, though it does load with 500 titles already included. The full version is available via an in-app purchase for $4.99.
Lead Developer Testimonial:
Constant Reader is the app I had in mind when I decided to become an app developer. I listen to a lot of books and was keeping a text list of all my favorite authors, and starting to have trouble remembering if I had already read some books on my todo list. I thought ... wouldn't it be cool if there was an app that would make my favorites list and my todo list easy and fun? So, I got to work and Constant Reader is the result. Lots of extra features have been added since the initial release, and more are yet to come. Some of the new features were suggestions made by users on Facebook. I'm always open to ideas for improvements, so if you have any - let me know!
