The Onyx Boox T68 Lynx is one of the first commercially viable e-readers that has an open version of Google Android. This means, you can load in your own apps or install your favorites via Google Play. Today, we look at various e-reading apps, such as Kindle, Wattpad, Aldiko, Marvel Comics and a number of others.
This device runs Android 4.0.4, which means almost all of the current generation e-reader apps will be able to run. The Lynx does have performance issues with any app that involves page turn animations. Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Marvel and Wattpad all have their apps designed to take advantage of tablets and smartphones. They dress them up with in-app animations, such as page turns and peaking. It is almost impossible to disable these features, which makes the Onyx a real challenge to use your favorites.
