Android readerHello everyone, fans of tablet computers, in this case gadgets based on the Android operating system. In today's article, I made a selection of programs that allow you to open e-books, in various popular formats (djvu, pdf, fb2, epub), on your Android device.

Recently, the technology of mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers) has leaped very far forward, which seemed impossible about five years ago, is becoming real and even, to some extent, commonplace today. Now reading books on your smartphone becomes not only possible, but also very convenient.. Due to the small size of the book files (djvu, pdf, fb2, epub), you can build the most real library on your device.


There are a lot of software products that allow reading e-books on mobile devices, including those on Android devices. Such applications have both paid products and free readers. It is worth noting that some free applications of this kind are not inferior to their paid counterparts, and in some cases exceed them in functionality.

As I said above - due to the fact that the size of the e-book files is very small and downloaded to the Android device in just a few seconds, electronic libraries numbering several dozens or even hundreds of thousands of different books began to appear on the Internet. Imagine that you can access a huge library from anywhere in the world, at any time, completely free of charge, from your mobile device.

What a good reader should look like, let's define a few requirements that an e-book reader should have.

  • It is desirable, but not necessary, to be free;
  • Have a nice intuitive interface;
  • The application should be able to open e-books in various popular formats, such as: PDF, FB2, EPUB, DJVU, etc .;

The above are the basic requirements for such applications, it is quite natural that for each user the criteria for selecting programs will be their own. Below you can see the three programs for reading. Choose the most appropriate program from the list and start building your library.
