We’re a chapter ahead.

Subtext was built from the ground up to support classroom reading, from essentials like getting everyone on the same page in class to unprecedented visibility into how your students read.

No matter what type of iPads you have in your school  from a small cart to a big 1:1 program — Subtext makes it easier to find, distribute and discuss books and docs.

This chart captures the main differences between Subtext and the other major reading apps on the market. Find out more in Features & Functionality.
