Pure Text app review: distraction-free reading

Reviews

Introduction

If you like to read a lot on your iPad or even your iPhone then you’re sure to find Pure Text to be a fantastic download as it provides a variety of reading modes and magnification levels to help you enjoy reading free from distractions and without straining your eyes.

I used to read a lot of ebooks on my iPhone: not an ideal setup, I know.

Either way, I wish I had an app like this at the time because although nothing will ever replace the experience of reading a real paper book, I love what the developer has done here and really think it could help to spare your eyes from a lot of undue stress.

Read in All Lighting Conditions

As you might have guessed from the name of this app, it has been designed for the sole purpose of enhancing your reading experience on your iOS device so that you can assimilate the information without being distracted.

You’ll find full magnification options with the option to zoom by pinching, and you can also choose between Original, Gray Scale, and Light on Dark reading modes depending on the lighting conditions, further reducing the strain on your eyes in low-light environments.

Export Screen Captures to Your Camera Roll

Pure Text also allows you to freeze the on-screen content at any time with a single tap, and from here you can export your screen captures directly into your iOS device’s Camera Roll which is perfect for sharing with others online.

Final Words

Pure Text definitely won’t replace a good paperback novel in my opinion, but as far as reading apps for iPhone and iPad go, I really like it and would definitely recommend it over a lot of competing developments in the Utilities category of the App Store.
