You don’t have to buy an iPad or a dedicated ebook reading device to read ebooks. Your iPhone is more than enough for that purpose. In this post I’ll share usage tips to get you started and explore flexibility the iPhone adds to reading experience.
Why iPhone and why not iPad? Sometimes iPad is just one device too much. It’s the smartphone that you always keep. This gives you the chance to instantly read books at any time and place you want – even if you haven’t planned it.

iPhone offers reading versatility of the tablet. The only issue you may have is the size. It’s not the issue for me. iPhone screen in a portrait position has the width of a newspaper column. Do you have a problem with that size while reading a print edition of The New York Times?
What’s more, in any book reading application you can make the font bigger, much bigger, than in The New York Times. And much bigger than in a Facebook app. If you don’t have a problem reading Facebook status updates or comments why should you have it in a book reading application?

Use Kindle for iOS app and you’ll turn your iPhone into Kindle e-reader. Use Nook, or Kobo, or Google Play Books, and make your iPhone an e-reading device connected with your favorite ebookstore. Or use a combination of a few apps that fit your needs most.
There are two kinds of book apps in the iTunes AppStore:
- Book readers
- Standalone books
