Oyster, Scribd, and Kindle Unlimited have all been described as “Netflix for books.” But if “Netflix for children’s books” is what you’re looking for, especially for your kids, then look no further than Epic, which has just received its universal update.
Launched late last January for iPad, Epic has been updated with universal support for iPhone and iPod touch. This means that you and your young ones can now enjoy Epic’s library of children’s books on your smaller iOS devices as well as on your larger ones.
Note, though, that Epic hasn’t been optimized yet for the larger smaller iOS devices, i.e., the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
Epic’s library offers access to various titles for kids aged 12 and below, including picture books, chapter books, comic books, graphics novels, nonfiction titles, and junior novels.
