Using the Freading Mobile App

Freading appThe Freading mobile app is a reader that you can use to view Freading books on your device.  Search for titles using the Freading website on your device's browser and then download the ebooks to open in the app.  At this time the app works with iPhones and iPads, most Android phones and tablets (any that can see the entire Android store) and the Kindle Fire (with additional instructions).    At this time the Freading Mobile App works best with tablets - the Freading website is not optimized for smaller mobile devices, so you will need to scroll and side scroll to see the different features of the site.  (The images used below are from the iPad.)
