You spend most of your day reading stuff off your phone, why not read some books while you're at it? An entire crop of e-reader apps have popped up for the iPhone that allow you to enjoy most of the features of a stand alone e-reader, just on a much smaller platform... and without an e-ink screen. But, hey, they're still dope, and most of them are free. And some let you adjust the screen and text settings so reading for long periods of time won't leave your pupils effed up. To save you from browsing through the app store, we chose 5 of our favorite e-reader apps below...

amazonkindleapp_iphone

APP: Amazon Kindle for iPhone
PLATFORM: iPhone
COMPLEX SAYS: Amazon's Kindle app isn't as full featured as their stand alone e-reader, but it does its own thing pretty well. It allows you to download any books you've already purchased from the Kindle store for free. You can transfer books easily between your computer, the phone and Kindle. If you're reading a book on your Kindle and then want to continue on your phone, the built in Whispersync feature lets you pick up right where you left off. Pretty dope.

You can make it yours. If gives you the most functionality out of any e-reader on the iPhone. And, yeah, it's free. Can't beat that.
