Nowadays, reading books on a smart device or e-reader is really common. And there are several ebooks stores such as Google Play, Kindle Store, etc.
However, each of them has built their walls, using DRM (Digital Right Management) to protect ebooks files, which limits users from reading the books in other apps.
For instance, you can’t open an ebook that was purchased from Google Play Store on the Apple Book app. So, you have to keep the Google Play Books app for reading those ebooks. It would be worse if someone bought books from several different stores.
There is no doubt that it will be uncomfortable to think about “Which app should I open?” before reading. The only way to store all the ebooks in one reading app is to remove DRM from ebooks.
