Inkitt - The Hipster's Library

Hey Everyone!

I love reading, I love Android apps and I love bargains. Here's all three.

The Inkitt app launches on Android today. It's been available on iOS since late last year and has been very popular there. The app is free and all the books available on it are free. The idea is that people upload books and an algorithm tracks reader behaviour to see which books are the most popular. The publishing company behind the app, Inkitt, will then publish the most popular books.

Since July, Inkitt has published 7 novels: Catalyst Moon: Incursion by Lauren L. Garcia (Fantasy), Just Juliet by Charlotte Reagan (YA Romance), I Was A Bitch by Emily Ruben (YA Romance Mystery), Esper Files by Egan Brass (SciFi) and Caged by Onaiza Khan (Psychological Thriller),  King’s Lament by Lilia Blanc (Fantasy Romance) and Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew (Humor Romance), six of which became bestsellers on Amazon.

Inkitt for Android - 4 key features:
  • Access to thousands of novels from all fiction genres: fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, thriller, horror, romance, drama, action, adventure, YA and more
  • Personalized reading suggestions: hand-picked novels based on a reader’s favorite fiction genres
  • Customizable look to match user preferences (e.g. font size, color combinations)
  • Online/Offline: readers can save novels to their offline library to access them anytime


The app is clean and intuitive. I love the option to save books and read them offline and the fact that all the books there are complete. Have you unearthed any hidden gems?
