Weekly poll results: which Android eBook app do you use?

46

Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to reading. Nowhere is this more true than reading on your phone.

Whether you're reading on a 4-inch budget phone or a top-of-the-line phablet, reading on your phone is unique to each and every voracious bookworm that does it. Some will only read on their tablet, some will squeeze in a few pages anywhere they can — and we do mean anywhere. Some will switch apps on a dime — or to save a dime on a particular book — while other are committed to one service and one service alone. But at the end of this week's poll, there can only be one... or can there?

The Chromebook Help app: Why you can safely give your parent a Chromebook

18

Chromebooks are supposed to be 'made for everyone', but that doesn't mean it doesn't take adjusting to.

Just as there's some adjustment to using any new computer — even one with the same operating system — Chromebooks take a little fresh thinking and a little time to get the hang of for most users. While it may not seem like much of a difference to you, if you're getting ready to give a Chromebook to a friend of family member who isn't a huge fan of changes in their technology, you can expect things to get a little bumpy in those first days and weeks while they're essentially re-learning how to use a computer. And while you may not be able to take every single call from them about how to do this or that, there is someone who is there all the time to help.

It's called the Chromebook Help app, and it's here to — you got it — help.

Doing all of your reading through the Nook app

2

The last major bookstore chain wants to be all things to all people, but it turns out that's not easy to do.

It's not uncommon to hear someone refer to their ereader app as being a bookstore on their phone or tablet, but the folks at Barnes & Noble get about as close as you can towards making that statement literal. The Nook app is much more than just an ereader app attached to a store, it's an access portal for movies, television shows, newspapers, magazines, and even puzzles and toys that are sold in physical B&N locations. A content portals go, the Nook app is perfectly capable of delivering a tremendous amount of content to your mobile device. Whether or not that means you want to use this app as your primary reading mechanism is another matter entirely.

121

Is there anything more boring than a wireless operator in the United States? Here we are again with the virtually simultaneous releases of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 — two phones that give us a lot of reasons to be excited. But the colors available here in the U.S., sadly, are not one of them.

HTC One E9+

HTC's first Quad HD phone is a plastic-bodied HTC One for China.

Just like that, HTC has updated its Chinese site with an official listing for a new high-end handset for that country — the HTC One E9+.
