Wattpad, the world's most popular mobile ebook sharing community, is expanding to iPhone. Thanks to a partnership with Five Mobile, Wattpad today announced that its popular ebook reading application, with an extensive library of user-generated and public domain ebooks, is now downloadable directly on the iPhone for free.
"The Apple iPhone and iPod Touch have revolutionized the ebook landscape," enthused Allen Lau, Co-founder of Wattpad. "We combine the large touch screens of the iPhone, our proven reading technology and huge collection of user-generated ebooks to provide the best possible user experience on mobile devices for free. Best of all, you don't need a dedicated ebook subscription service or device, like Amazon Kindle or Sony eReader, as your mobile phone is always with you."
"Wattpad is a true leader in the ebook space and we are excited to expand our lengthy and productive relationship," said Jeff Zakrzewski, President and Co-founder of Five Mobile. "We are extremely pleased to be chosen by Wattpad as a trusted partner in bringing their superior reading technology to iPhone users."
