10 Mobile Apps for Bookworms


Wattpad from WP Technology, Inc.

Wattpad has one of the coolest approaches to tapping the digital reading market. This app, which is available at no cost for iOS devices, Android, Windows 7, BlackBerry and Samsung phones, distributes content written by professional writers, as well as undiscovered, amateur writers. Calling itself the "YouTube for e-books," Wattpad allows users to upload their own material to share with the Wattpad community. And it's a thriving one, with users dropping around a billion minutes on Wattpad every single quarter [source: PRWEB].

Whatever your taste, the Wattpad community has a story for you. And for aspiring writers, what better way to get your work seen? You can upload anything from poetry to completed novels and interact with users in real-time to find out what people think of your work. And it's all free.

So if you're in the mood to read something different, or discover an up-and-coming writer, Wattpadd is definitely worth checking out.
