Oyster book subscription

Taking a cue from Netflix, Oyster is a $10 monthly subscription that lets you read as many books as you can. You can download any number of books from the catalog, which includes a mix of classic literature and contemporary titles. The app's stunning design makes it a pleasure to use.

Reading a book

Each book includes the same text and photos you'd find in the print version, but often times the formatting and other design elements are streamlined in e-book form. To flip the pages in a book, just swipe your finger or tap on the edges of the screen.

Night mode

Oyster also includes a night view, which gives the app a black background that's easier on the eyes when you're in a dark room.
