Is it good for learning?

Any reading provides the opportunity to practice focus skills. The fact that Epic! Books reading app makes it an even more effective tool for exercising focus. By selecting a book and paying attention to what is on the page, the user is choosing to ignore internal and external distractions. The focus required for a book depends on its length--some are short and require little focus, while longer ones may require focus to be sustained over the course of days.

With Epic! Books, users also get the added bonus of having audiobook and read-to-me options to help those who struggle with reading and focus. In both cases, the book is read to the user, providing an additional audio cue to help them maintain their focus. At the time of this Epic review, the read-to-me option also includes high-lighting the word being read. The vast selection of books also allows for the user to have a better chance of finding a book they want to focus on, thereby providing yet another boost for those who struggle with focus.
