    Google Play Books's review

    Published: 2015-03-27, by .

    Google brings you one of the very best mobile eReaders on the market today - and it's free

    • Totally free
    • Automatic cross-platform syncing
    • Amazing customization options
    • Reads ePUB and PDF
    • Search for definitions and Wiki information
    • Purchase or rent books from the Google library
    • Can't read other file formats (like MOBI)

    "Mobile bookworms, unite!"


    Don't snub Google Play Books just because it may come automatically installed on your device (you hipster you) - it's been named as Lifehacker's current favorite mobile eReader on the market. We're talking cross-platform support and syncing out the wazoo, for Android, iOS, the web, phones, tablets, you name it - a massive advantage over other eReaders. Heaps of customization options don't get in the way of the simple pleasure of immersing yourself in a good read.


    It's free, free, free, and free. Upload any ePUB or PDF books to your personal library and they'll automatically sync across all your devices, so you can pick up where you left off anytime, anywhere. Definitions, Wikipedia information, and other search results are super easy to access within the app. You can even purchase or rent books from Google's massive library, ranging from NYT bestsellers to textbooks.


    It can't read anything that's not ePUB or PDF, so grab a converter for other file formats.

    Not intuitive or user friendly. No obvious menu and the only options I get can get are to copy, search, and translate text. A result of Google's stupid decision to remove the menu button no doubt. I can't even figure out how to jump to a specific page.
