Love reading in your spare time? Want to catch a quick witty joke or poem before your meeting?
Look no further, this free eBook reading and sharing Java application from Wattpad is pretty cool. Wattpad is all about the community. Content is uploaded by community members and read by others. You yourself can upload content as well after creating a free account.
After downloading the Java app from m.wattpad.com it’s very simple to use with a friendly user interface.
As you can see you can also change the background and text colors to your liking from a list of preset choices, along with the text size. I wish more applications had this feature.
Getting an eBook is easy, with two ways of doing so. First you could go visit the Wattpad.com site on your home computer, find a story you’d like to read, and grab it’s code on the right hand side of the page. Then go back to the application on your phone and punch it in. Wattpad does the rest. Or secondly, you could just find it via the application’s internal browser:
Getting the story via “Read Now”, either from the website or the applications internal browser is very fast.
Downloading the entire story to “Read Offline”, however is a bit more involved. If you select this feature, the application will launch the appropriate page in your BlackBerry browser, where you can choose several different download options. If your limited on space you could download the book in parts, or just download the Full version. The stories are in .jad format, and once downloaded, you simply select Run from the download screen, and it will launch the story in Wattpad, where you can read it at your leisure.
I assume that it can be easy to forget how many stories you’ve downloaded after a while, thus filling up your phones memory pretty quickly, so keep an eye out on that! So far I haven’t found any major issues with this application, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I have. Happy reading!
