Free Books - 23,469 classics for less than a cup of coffee.

Friends, are you tired of “free” book apps that end up charging you $15 for every book you want to read? Spreadsong Inc. is here to help. Whereas other book apps continue to charge you for books the Free Books app offers you their entire library of classic books, speeches, and poetry for only $1.99.

In a world of ruffian apps Free Books stands out as a true gentleman. As a child Free Books would helplessly watch in horror as the ones he loved fell victim to dishonest book apps time and time again. He’d cry as friends and families were tricked with clever wordplay to download apps for no charge, only to fall victim to steep fees for anything they’d want to read. One day Free Books had seen enough, and he vowed to always answer the call of any disenfranchised Apple user.

What’s that you say? Free Books isn’t free if it costs $1.99? Well even a gentleman needs to make a living. Free Books may employ poetic license in its title but it doesn’t cross the line of trickery some other apps do. Free Books was raised better than that. Free Books was raised to be a good host, making sure its menu of over 23,000 books is easy to search through. It offers a warm brown menu, as if to replace the organic void that is left from the absence of paper. Free Books doesn’t just organize its books by popular, title, author and rating. Nor does Free Books call it quits after including a search function and a featured section with books hand-picked by Free Books itself. Although some would have found that acceptable Free Books takes things a step further by organizing its books into various collections and genres which can be easily browsed through.

Alas, what may appear a hero may still have its share of flaws. Free Books boasts the size of its collection, but apparently you’re not expected to download too many of their books. Otherwise I’d assume they would have added a search function for the books you’ve downloaded. The brown toned menu mentioned earlier isn’t exactly a thrill to look at either, though I can appreciate what they’re going for. As expected many of the books in the library are quite obscure and antiquated, but there are more than enough classic works of literature (from Alice in Wonderland to Paradise Lost) for this app to earn its keep.
