Need an app to replace Libby and still read library books? This app seems to do the trick. Disappointed that Libby will no longer support Android 7. However I was thrilled to come across this little gem. I loaded it on my tablet and a phone. My library allowed me to download the book I was reading to both devices so when one is charging I can still read on the other. It is easy to use from the start. Very basic which is my preference.

Great reader. I have used a couple diffrent readers. But this one is the best. The ability to change styles and fonts is well made, easy to understand. Love the text to read option. It uses google text. Easy to understand. Like a loved one reading you to sleep. So many diffrent options, still very easy 2 use. Never asked for money, no ads. Just a free gift from a great programmer. Thank you.

I'm a reader not a gamer. I love that ALReader's interface is so customizable. Makes it possible to read books faster than I could reading the paper book. I have over 1500 epub & mobi files and I'm constantly adding more. ALReader is my go-to for reading on my phone. The TTS feature lets me listen to a book while commuting to and from work. No trees died for my books! I've been using AL Reader for three years now without a single glitch across four different phones and several updates. Keep up the great work Mr Neverland!!!
