We love books. We love authors. We love anything that promotes either or even both! This awesome Mxit e-reader app called Bookly does both!
When Bookly launched last year it was an e-reader app for Mxit that could work on even the most basic feature phone. It offered up more than 450 local and international books and was a great way to encourage young people to read. We like!
Now Bookly is expanding. It is not only going to be a reading platform but also a writing one! Aspiring authors don’t need a typewriter – they can utilise their phone! Anyone can write a bookly and it can be short or long, novel or poem… the options are endless. You’ll also be able to share your creation on social media. We think that is pretty cool.
“By expanding bookly into a writing platform, we will allow children and young adults to create content that is relevant to them – and written in their own language. That way, bookly will become a platform that inspires writing, in any language, on any mobile device,” says Levon Rivers, NATIVE VML’s Head of Inventions.
