Those of you that follow me know I rave to no end about my favorite eBook reader Freda in the Store. Well I am glad to announce a good competition to the App in Book Bazaar Reader. The is solid from what I can see thus far, and as you can see from the number Stars it garnered in the ratings, it is a good app indeed. For some of you that are crazy on skeuomorphism, you’ve got a winner in this app as it turns pages with 3D animation like you have on iPad and the rest.

It is a good thing to see Devs continue to innovate with MX Apps. This is another example of what you can achieve if you set your mind to it with Windows Modern Apps. Way to go I say. The App is free for now in the Store, you can give it a spin yourselves and for your own opinion. Download via the Source link here below.
