6 Ways Reading Apps Matter to Employees

Stress at work keeping you awake at night? If you’re not getting enough sleep or generally find yourself in a sluggish frame of mind a lot of the times, you might want to consider giving yourself a break. That’s where reading apps handily come in:

Instant Access

According to The Huffington Post, reading is one way to help yourself relax. However, if you’ve got a busy schedule, you might not have enough time on your hands to swing by the bookstore, much less browse through the aisles for a great reading material to help you shake that stress and exhaustion off. With apps to read books, though, you can. Simply log onto the apps and you get access to a list of bestsellers, upcoming books and even weekly or monthly top sales-earners. So you won’t have to waste time going to the bookstore. With a reading app, you can shop for books whether you’re in the car being driven to somewhere, on the plane or relaxing in the tub after a long day at work.

Storage Aplenty

If storage—or lack of it—has been a longstanding problem with your mobile reading experience, then getting reading apps that allow you to access and connect to the cloud is ideal. This way, you won’t have to keep erasing files and deleting images sorely to provide your eLibrary with enough space to function. This way, you won’t find yourself mistakenly deleting important files—business reports and otherwise— in your mobile phone in your rush to generate ample storage space.

Free Business eBooks

SiteProNews says plenty having reading apps gives you access to a massive library of free content. With apps to read books like the Nook, you can download a lot of eBooks at no cost. Take advantage of this freebie by researching on business topics. Then use the text-to-voice feature in your app to listen to the eBooks on your way to work or when you’re on the train, going home. Think of it as a training tool. By reading about books on people management, communication and leadership, you get a lot of useful tips you can apply in real-life situations. That kind of training and insight might also prove invaluable when dealing with coworkers and clients. According to the book, The No Asshole Rule by Robert Sutton, having one bad apple in the bunch could derail and undermine the productivity of everyone in the group. By reading the book and knowing how to handle and manage these people, you can significantly reduce the amount of stress you have to deal with at work.

Reading On-the-Go

PCTechMag cites reading on the go as an important advantage of read.... It doesn’t make sense to pack along a book in your bag when you’re never sure when you’ll get to finish it. With reading apps, though, you can return to whatever story you left behind any time without the need to carry a book in your bag. That’s extra baggage you don’t need. Ditch the heavy books on your daily commutes. And when you finally find yourself stuck in traffic, then take out the device and get on with your reading. Just make sure you keep an eye on the traffic if you’re driving though. You might find yourself so engrossed with the story that you don’t notice the light going green or hear the angry honks of cars behind you.

Organized eLibrary

Reading apps are for organized souls. If you love your books categorized accordingly—whether by the author’s name or the book’s title, you’ll find it easy to scroll down major sections. That means you won’t have to scroll through a ton of eBooks just to find the one you want. Reading apps also offer you a way to view the last couple of eBooks you read. So if you want to thumb through the pages of those books to refresh your memory of a passage or two, then doing so is quick, simple and easy. 

Helpful Features

Another advantage to reading apps are the features they come with. Some have built-in dictionaries so if you encounter a word you’re not familiar with, you can check out what it means without having to waste minutes to go online for the definition or to look up the word in a literal dictionary. Also, font size and color choices do a lot to help you ease the strain on your eyes from working for 8 to 11 hours, staring at the screen all day. With features that allow you to make the font sizes bigger or one that helps dim down the brightness of the letters or screen, you can make your reading experience better, reducing eyestrain and stress on your part.

These are just 6 reasons reading apps help busy employees cope. So the next time you find yourself looking for a way to let off some steam, consider the merits of downloading and installing reading apps for a better reading experience.
