Bookz gets a few points for the customization options offered to its user. You can do pretty much what you will with the text formatting and backgrounds (even import your own image from the iPhone’s photo app like the sweet tubbypaws picture I used). However, besides that this is a bare bones reader that is really not worth your time and definitely not worth your $5. I’ll run down the list: Download books from the web? Yes, but you’re pretty much limited to Project Gutenberg; Upload from your computer? No (you can set up your own server like with eReader and others, but that’s ridiculous to expect of the everyday Joe);Swipe gestures? Nope, and you can only turn the page by pressing the bottom of the screen, which is doubly confusing when in landscape (which cannot be toggled by tilting the accelerometer). Bookmarking? Yes, works fine; Highlighting and/or note taking? Nope; Lots of file formats? Nope TXT files only; Text search? Yes, in fact there are two text search options, in the form of a magnifying glass button and an “AZ” button. I couldn’t discern a difference between the two, though I’ll admit I didn’t try very hard because I don’t really care.
