    "I've been using Aldiko ever since I was in college or like 7 years ago. I was still using Lenovo phone back then and it was the only app that supports epub files (based on what I know ofc) and it's very organized! This is where I got to read John Green books and the hunger games series... Now I'm using iphone and Im soo glad that it's also available in app store!"

    "I can compare FBreader to Aldiko, both are great apps for reading EPUB books. (but we all know Aldiko is more famous). I have both apps on my phone and I use this one more often because it can also read MS word files (for school purposes)."

    "It would have been better if ads can be blocked or somehow can be turned off. I can only experience reading without ads when I don't turn on my wifi. On the other hand, Bookari is a good epub reader becoz it can let you highlight your fav lines."

    "I Reallly like how Kobo gets to create an organized library. I also like it that it gives you your stats on the current book you're reading, also, I have a lot of epub files on my computer and didn't know how to be able to read them until I discovered Kobo books in app store. It's free so I gave it a try and didn't regret it soo far."
