  • Excellent app

    Really love the concept of this app, as well as the implementation. The design is clean and intuitive, and it’s got me back in a habit of reading everyday. It’s hard to sit down and pick up a book with all of life, but this simplifies and initiates that time for me each morning.

    I have enjoyed using Serial Reader for the past few weeks and I ended up purchasing the extra features. Two things I'd love to see addressed; the sync, while it works, is a little off. I complete a serial on my phone and sync. I pick up the iPad and tap sync, and it still shows the serial not completed. I would assume it would state I was done with that one for the day. I would also like to see some marking, a badge or similar on finished books, maybe I'm just getting old but I've read 12 books already and I'm forgetting which ones they were when browsing something new to read. I can just see this getting worse. I'd still like to see the detail for the summary and other similar books, so I wouldn't want them hidden. Update: I just opened this up today from an extended beak and the books I’ve read now have a check mark on them, awesome. I’ll have to check out the sync and if that’s better it will be worth a star bump! Thanks!!
  • Great Fun!

    I really enjoy waking up and having a bite sized piece of good literature to read each day. I also like that there is a meter to measure what kind of a streak I am on, which motivates me to keep it at 100 percent. There is a wide variety of books to choose from, and it helps me get through some of the more difficult reading, such as Dantes Inferno.
  • Easy way to read great books!

    This is a fantastic app! After using it to read one book I bought the upgrade to paid version because it just simply is that good. I love how it sets the book out in blocks of time under 20 minutes For me to read each day. This is practical and easy for a busy mom like me. The books are free! Can’t get any better then that! I recommend this app to the reader who’s just too busy to read, once you have this app, you will find the time! Trust me!
  • Amazing!

    Breaking down a story into bite sizes that I can read everyday has been encouraging! I’m reading the classics I’ve always wanted to read and I don’t feel it’s taking too much time out of my busy day. I do it during my lunch break or just a few minutes before bed. I hope more books get added or maybe let us recommend book lists.
  • Best Reading App

    This is the best app for reading I have ever found. Finally an app that can help me stock to my reading goals in a seriously fun manner. I love it.
  • What a great app!

    I’ve only been using Serial Reader for a few days, but I’m hooked! The interface is clean and intuitive, as well as being easy to navigate. The accomplishment badges and words of encouragement are a tad bit cheesy, but they can be toggled off if you like. Overall though, this is a great way to read a book. I started with “The Count of Monte Cristo”, a classic that I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time now, but just haven’t found time to fit into my reading schedule. The notifications come each morning, (you can set them to your own personal preference), to remind me that the next installment of my novel is available. It’s typically a 10-15 minute portion that I can read with my morning coffee. The number of titles is somewhat limited to what, I assume, is in the public domain. But that still amounts to hundreds of the great classics! These books are available through other apps, but I really love the idea of serving it up in daily bite-size portions that don’t take up too much of my day but always leave me wanting more. Kudos to the developer for a great idea. I would certainly recommend this app!
