Inkstone Software today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of eBook Search 3.0, an important update to their free eBook search solution for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. eBook Search offers readers the ability to search a wide number of free eBook resources, as well as the ability to download the books to their device for their immediate reading pleasure.
eBook Search offers readers the ability to search for and read over 8 million free eBooks from sources such as iBooks, Kindle, Nook, Google Play Books, Kobo, and many other eBook collections. The app also connects to free book catalogs maintained by Feedbooks, Baen Books, Project Gutenberg, Smashwords, ePub Bud, ManyBooks, and the Internet Archive. Its sleek modern interface is designed to work in any device’s native resolution, making it perfect for users of any mobile device.
Once a user finds the eBook they are looking for, it only takes a few taps to download to their device, and open it up in most popular reading apps. Or, if they want to put off downloading the book until a later time, they can send a link to their own inbox to remind them. Users can also share their finds via handy sharing abilities.
