I like to read a lot on my Android devices (GNote II and Nexus 7) and over time I have evolved my use of different apps for different types of reading. I am curious if other folks approach reading on your device(s) similarly and, if so, what apps you use. Here's what I use:
Micro-form and long-form content
First, let me lop off both ends of the spectrum. For the smallest stuff I read, I use Falcon Pro for Twitter and the official app for Facebook. For the longest stuff I read, I use the Kindle app. I have some books from B&N, and may start using the Nook app, but anything I've bought new has been through Amazon. And, I'll probably buy something from Google Play Books sometime just to try it.
I use GReader Pro for blogs. This is content for which I want all the headlines, but I probably only read 5-10% of the articles. Example: my Android category in Google Reader. I'll hit my Android list, or a local blog feed, for a few minutes several times a day and quickly swipe through the articles until I find stories I want to read. This is great when I have a few minutes to kill and just want to check in on the world.
Fed with a healthy dose of IFTTT, I use Pocket like an industry journal, or hobbyist magazine. This is longer-form content that I mostly read in total. For probably 80%+ of the articles I feed in there, I read at least half before marking it read, and for most, I read the whole article. I like the page flipping feature, it makes the experience feel more magazine-like to me. I turn to Pocket at the end of the day when I am winding down.
I use Flipboard like it's People magazine. This is way more casual content that I just kinda meander through. If I skip it for a week, I don't care, but there are times that I just want to lose an hour or so with recipes, cute human interest stories and infographics. This is also end-of-the-day content, or sometimes first-cup-of-coffee content.
News, nothing but. I read News360 like a newspaper (a really awesome newspaper).
I download a fair amount of research papers and other long-ish PDF's. ezPDF Reader is my reader of choice. I like the page flipping here, too.
How about you? What apps do you use that you think are better than the ones I've listed for my purposes? I'm an app-hound, always up for trying something new, let me know what I should try.
Have great weekend, y'all!
