The Good e-Reader Android App Store has been growing steady, since 2011. In 2013 the store recorded 80 million visitors and have quickly become the largest app store in Canada. Good e-Reader is proud to announce that we have partnered with Icarus, and all new Illumina e-reader owners will be able to easily download their favorite e-reading apps.
Netherlands based Icarus has been selling e-Readers for the past three years and have quickly become a very solid company. Their second generation Illumina reader has Android 4.2.2 and allows users to craft their own experience. The Good e-Reader App Store allows Icarus owners to install their favorite e-Reader, comic, manga, newspaper or magazine app directly on their Illumina.
Many e-readers often lock their users into one specific ecosystem and makes it fairly difficult to load in your own eBooks or newspapers. One of the big benefits of an open Android reader is the ability to do business with any company you want.
Good e-Reader currently offers over 35,000 apps and has created a new section entitled “Apps Designed for e-Ink.” This dedicated catalog of great apps is right on the home screen and they have all been extensively tested on the Illumina e-Reader to insure the best user experience.
Roberto Damen, CEO of ICARUS stated “We are very proud to announce this cooperation with Good e-Reader. By integrating their App Store in our e-readers, we can offer our users easy to use access to all relevant Android apps. And thanks to the curated section of apps that are optimized for our device, the end-user can be sure that the apps they download offer them a great user experience.”All new Icarus e-Readers we have the App Store pre-loaded on their device when purchases after September 1st. Existing users can download the Free App today and manually install it.
