Laputa II Review
by on May 31, 2010
In a short space of time, ebooks have gone from being a fringe technology to mainstream media, with readers up and down the land swapping paper for pixels.
When it comes to ebooks on the Android platform, there’s precious few apps to choose from. But even if there were Laputa would still reign king.
This free app takes seconds to download but an age to put down. Open up the app and you are shown a blank bookshelf, click on the library link and you are whisked off to the Laputa library which offers hundreds of books in ebook format for free.
That’s right. Free. Nothing. Nada. Is it all above board? We have no idea. What we do know is that Laputa is riding the ebook bandwagon very successfully.
On the ebooks we tried (Paradise Lost from the Classics section and The Dark Tower) text was big enough to read and the colour of the background made everything easy on the eye.
Be warned though, your Android phone doesn’t use e-ink so prolonged reading on the shiny device may strain the eyes, but for those who want to read a book in bite-seized chunks, then Laputa is well and truly for you.
