It is undeniable that some of us really love to read and read and read. But sometimes, due to time constraint, we are unable to scan and skim on pages of the novel, magazine, and the like that we want to read. Knowing this, designers created apps which can cater to your reading needs without compromising your time. Below are the 5 Best Reading Apps which may feed the bookworm in you.

BBC News

BBC News

Topping the “5 Best Reading Apps” list is BBC News. It can be generalized that among news apps, this app has one of the best interfaces (i.e., clean, with relevant headlines, good photos, and zero advertisements). A plus point to the app is that BBC really does have correspondents in every corner of the globe, as well as varied and widespread topics. Another is that you are entitled to elect to view some news in other languages, such as Spanish, Arabic, and two kinds of Chinese.

Digg

Next is Digg. This app is both speedy and responsive, with a fantastic design and wonderful overall user experience. Digg’s main part does not contain much to write home about. Stated otherwise, there is a home screen where popular Digg news stories display in a scrollable view. Stories appear with a headline and image, and a count showing how many “Diggs” (similar to Facebook “likes”) a story received. You can open the story to read it in full display, bookmark the story to read later, or share it via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Feedly

Feedly

Third is Feedly. As one of the 5 Best Reading Apps, it delivers the content you want from your favorite websites into your iPhone. Feedly is a new way to browse and share the content of your favorite news sites, feeds, Tumblr blogs and Youtube channels. It is absolutely a full replacement to Google Reader that includes updates you want from Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instapaper, and other sources around the Web. It makes browsing faster and more fun with the content of your RSS feeds, news sites and blogs transformed into pocket-sized cards which load very fast and are easy to browse.

Flipboard

Then, we have Flipboard. It is an app which curates content from your social networks and a web partner (periodicals, blogs, etc.) based on your interests and turns them into stunning magazine-like digital pages. Flipboard has a new feature “Cover Stories for iPhone,” which recommends articles and photos being shared with you right now, and learns over time what you will and will not be interested in viewing. It is free to download and requires a free user account. Flipboard looks elegant taking advantage of swiping gestures with both visual and interactive grace.

iBooks

iBooks

 Lastly, we have iBooks. Highly regarded as one of the 5 Best Reading Apps, it is a personal digital library with novels, magazines, newspapers, and other reading materials in store to be available for download at some latter time.  With iBooks, you can download best-sellers and classic books and look for fully illustrated books, including children’s picture books, designed art books, photo books, cook books, and more. Here, you can also experience gorgeous fullscreen multi-touch books filled with interactive features, diagrams, photos, videos, etc.
