How Moon+ Reader App Works

Moon+ Reader app for Android has got a very simple layout that is very easy to navigate around. Once installed, Moon+ Reader automatically integrates any eBooks that is already saved in the SD card into the app. Also, you can opt to download eBooks from the multiple eBooks catalogue that comes pre-installed. The search function comes handy to sort your choice of books or based on any particular writer. On the downside, each catalogue seems to use a different search filter; so the precision of results seem to vary a bit.

The same search feature can be made use of to search the eBooks in your SD Card. Moon+ Reader supports multiple file types such as txt, html, epub, umd, fb2, chm, zip or OPDS. Also, it is a fully customizable application; you can change the font, font size, alignment, orientation, margins, line spacing, background image or even set up hardware buttons to perform specific actions (such as turning the page). The app also got a day-night mode, read-aloud feature and option for bookmarking. The coolest feature in the app however is the ability to highlight and mark passages as you wish. You can then add it to your notes, and have it translated (if in a foreign language) using Send to Dictionary feature.
