A good looking and easy to use eBook reader
Universal Book reader is good looking and functional. It's easy to use, and fairly customizable. It has just a few too many ads however, including irritating fullscreen popups.
The app is well designed visually and functionally. It has spiffy page turning animations, which can be turned on or off. It also lets you set note color, highlight color, and customize a whole lot of other things as well.
There's not much to complain about, but there are quite a few ads - as well as banner ads, there are popup fullscreen ads. Thankfully neither of these seem to appear while actually reading, just in the library section.

The app has been my go to for the past couple of months; recently its been just plain buggy. Works great as an epub reader. But has a problem with rendering some books. Loses or deletes pages,then sends you back to the first chapter. If this were fixed the app would be my go to once again.
Bought the pro version and had a heck of a time sorting it out because of multiple broken links which could have been the play store's fault. The app is OK, but nothing outstanding. Still if you need a reader that will do mobile, spun, PDF etc this will do the job quite well so download with confidence to your phone or tablet.
