      "I'm always looking for things to entertain me in my free time with my Android phone. However, a lot of apps and services are paid and require monthly subscription fees. With several apps and services, these can add up and get expensive very fast! SnagFilms, however, is free. All of the movies are high quality and, although they aren't major motion pictures or mainstream movies, they offer stuff that is unique and indie. My favorite section is the documentary section because I can learn about a wide variety of things that interest me and explore a topic I don't know much about."

Reading is not only just as convenient as having the book right there with you, but it's even better because you don't have to carry around a bulky item. I can have hundreds of books right in your device, the same device I use for several other things."

I enjoyed the recommendations it made for me, based on books I had read. The only downfall I have seen is that you can not download books to a SD card, so it really uses up your memory."
