The largest trend in the e-reader industry in 2014 was the elimination of Linux as the default operating system and the unified embracing of Android. Asian and European companies have been spearheading this movement to allow anyone to install whatever e-reading app they want and not be locked into a specific ecosystem. So, we are proud to unveil the e-ink version of our app store, in order to move this market ahead further.
The Good e-Reader Android App Store for e-Ink is a major new initiative that gives users who have an Icarus, Onyx, Energy Sistem, Boyce or a slew of other devices to be able to easily install apps. Our App Store gives you unparalleled freedom to dictate your own e-reading experience.
Want to read PDF files and don’t like the default viewer? Want to read manga and love MangaBox? What about reading your favorite e-books via Amazon, Kobo or Barnes and Noble? Good e-Reader has over 29,000 apps that are compatible with e-ink devices.
The App Store for e-ink eliminates many of the issues that users found when using our regular Android App Store for smartphones and tablets. We decided to rebuild the store, getting rid of all advertisements, banners, image slideshows and anything else that can wreck havoc with traditional e-readers. The end result, is amazing!
The Good e-Reader App Store for e-Ink is free to install and doesn’t cost any money. We really want to make Android on e-readers a super viable thing and instead of just writing about all of the news here on the Good e-Reader Blog, we want to be proactive in helping the community find an awesome app solution.
