    "I downloaded this book reader because the big name reader wasn't compatible with my device. This one is much more easier to use and convenient because it gives more information on the books without having to click through several screens."

    "This is a great little app if you're interested in downloading any videos off of Vimeo. It is slightly limited because the library of videos on Vimeo isn't as big as some other sites but if you need to grab a video from there quickly then this will get the job done well. Definitely a good little tool worth having."
