Erwin Lee

Great alternative for iBook if you use Android phones. I used to use iPhone, and iBook is my daily ereader app, after switching to Android phone, I found it really hard to sync reading data between my Macbook and my new phone. Then Neat Reader comes into my eye, it works perfectly. I just wish you guys can polish it, making it better than iBooks.
