My favorite e-reading app has just entered a new chapter in its development.
Readmill has just received an update that further enriches reader engagement within the app.
The latest update to Readmill adds, at long last, support for browsing reviews and highlights from the Readmill community. This means that viewing comments and discussions is no longer limited to the Readmill website.
Just tap on any book in the Explore section or on your profile to see reviews and highlights. You can now comment on and like reviews and highlights as well. In addition, you can now share reviews and highlights via email, text message, Twitter, and Facebook.
As noted by the Readmill team, this enhancement offers “a great way to find out if a book is worth reading, or to get involved in a discussion about a book you’ve already read.”

The new update also significantly improves the way Readmill handles DRM-protected e-books. Now, you no longer need an Adobe ID to read books that are encrypted with Adobe DRM. Just upload such books to your Readmill library, open them in the app, and you’re good to go. Echoing one of Apple’s famous slogans, the Readmill team says that “it just works.”
The new version of Readmill is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
