Sony launches native Reader app for iOS
Monday, November 5, 2012 @ 4:15pm

Sony has launched an official Reader app for iOS. The software lets people access content bought for Sony's proprietary e-reading platform, syncing a user's titles through cloud storage. Many common features are included, such as bookmarks, day and night modes, and customizable font sizes and contrast. Some library management options include support for personalized collections.



The app marks a late entry from Sony into iOS support. Companies like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo have long had a presence on iOS, using their apps to encourage adoption of dedicated e-reading hardware. Sony is a relatively minor player in e-books though, and may not have been in a rush to support iOS; it already has an Android Reader app and Android-based phones and tablets.
