Review: Lektz eBook Reader gives you tons of format support

Read eBooks in just about any format on your Android smartphone or tablet using Lektz eBook Reader.

Lektz eBook Reader works well as a universal eBook reader thanks to its great format support. Its layout lets your eBooks shine their best and brightest, but it's a little lacking in the features department. A night mode or better annotations would push this reader up with the big names like Nook and Kindle.

This application supports any Lektz Publisher Stores' books, so you'll definitely need it if you download your books from that market. In addition to supporting those, Lektz eBook Reader offers support for both EPUB 2 and EPUB 3, as well as PDFs and other popular eBook formats. The app organizes your books in a stylish, fully searchable menu. The app's pages look good, but turning them too quickly made the app crash a few times during testing. Luckily, they turned smoothly enough so we didn't need to hammer away at the app to move along in our book. Since it only supports Android's built-in highlighting system, you can't take notes on the book you're reading as you read it. The app's all-white layout can be tiring on the eyes, but you can change the font and other layout elements for a little more comfort.

Though it's a few marquee features away from being elite, this application is still nice to have around for its format support. Lektz eBook Reader wins major points merely for letting you read eBooks that other apps don't. If it adds some new reading modes, it will be truly fantastic.
