Wattpad is an ebook reader that gives you access to more than 100,000 titles, which can be downloaded and read on your phone.

If you're a fan of reading then Wattpad is an app that will provide a lot of enjoyment for you. A huge community of users has helped to contribute to this staggering collection of works, and you can even add your own ebooks if you like.

Finding stuff to read with Wattpad is very straightforward. You can search for a book by its title, category, and/or language of origin. If you're looking for inspiration and ideas of what to read then check out the What's New and What's Hot categories.

Reading books in Wattpad isn't nearly as comfortable as you'd find in premium ebook readers such as Kindle. Scrolling through long texts can become a bit of a chore, and there are no tools for skipping to certain chapters. There are a few options available in Wattpad that can improve your reading experience, however. For instance, you can change the text size and color, and adjust the background color.

A couple of warnings about Wattpad before we finish. The first is that it uses your internet connection to access the library. You can choose to read an ebook online, or download it for offline viewing on your phone. Either way, it might end up costing you a lot of cash if you don't have a flat rate internet as part of your phone's data plan. The second warning is that some of the content you come across on Wattpad may contravene copyright law.

Overall though, I can strongly recommend Wattpad for serious readers. To have such an extensive library of books available on your mobile phone is quite incredible.
