Thanks for these useful pointers mel.

I've looked at IBooks and one thing that I found annoying is that you can't
read by line which is useful when looking at small chunks of text.

Still I imagine it is particularly easy to use IBooks when working in
conjunction with a Bluetooth keyboard or a  Braille display

Graham

Hi Graham,

I tried Kobo a little while ago and didn't like it. It's a while since I
tried it so I'm not sure what it was I didn't like about it and its long
gone from my phone. It may well have been that I simply preferred iBooks
which is very easy to use.

There is also a Nook app now which is very accessible too. Unlike iBooks,
you can't buy books directly from your phone, but the website is easy to
use.

Personally, I prefer iBooks and would look there for a title first. I am
told though that Nook has a far greater range of titles. At a glance the
prices of books seem very similar between these two apps.

Hi all.  in a recent email from RNIB  about reading on a mobile it was
suggested that the Kobo app on IPhone is accessible.  Has anyone tried it
and is it quite easy to use?  I've been wondering about EBook readers for
IPhone but I understand Kindle  is not accessible.

Regards

Graham
