The Reader's Hub is what Samsung is calling their on-tablet bookshelf.and ebookstore. As you can see at right, it offers access to a digital library – from classical literature to the latest bestsellers and reference material. Samsung says that RH makes it "easy to enjoy reading all of the newspapers, magazines and books" within only one galaxy tablet. The update is mentioned as having new support for enhanced content, including embedded audio and video. I'm still looking into this.
I've heard several of the major tablet makers have portal apps like this. Asus, for example, has [email protected] But does anyone really use these apps?
I have video music, and ebooks on my tablets, but I always use my preferred viewing apps to manage the content. I've never really understood the purpose of a portal app; I already have one. It's the home screen of what ever tablet I'm using.
