We create solutions to navigate the increasingly more complex world

At Himalaya-Soft, we strive to view the world of knowledge from high above the Great Himalayas, and create solutions to simplify and to navigate the increasingly more complex knowledge world.

We are proud of our early success: our first app (NY Times Himalaya Reader ) was named the NO. 1 App of 2011

We are equally proud to share with you our second App, Gutenberg Project, which has become the most used app for searching and reading Gutenberg free books.

Over the past few years we have gathered a large quantity of data from unique, anonymous readers and are proud to present the

Himalaya Most Read Books List

The ranking of this list is determined by the number of unique readers and the number of pages that are actually read. Downloading or flipping through pages have no effect on the ranking order of a book.

To read these books free, please download our Gutenberg Project from Apple's App Store.

Audio Reader for Wikipedia

Now it is time to introduce our latest app, Audio Reader for Wikipedia

We created this app because we could not find one that can do all the followings:

  • Change the font size and keep the text remain on screen: Some apps do allow you change font size, but the paragraph you are reading would disappear and you have scroll up and down to hunt down your paragraph, making the font-change feature unusable.
  • Bookmark current screen for resume reading: Every book reader offers a bookmark function so that you can bookmark your current reading position, but most Wikipedia readers lack such a very basic function. When you resume reading an article, you have scroll and scroll to search for the position you left off last time, which is usually impossible.
  • Tap a link to look up a reference and then come back to resume reading at the tapped link.
  • Listen to the text, instead of reading it.


  • With this app, we hope you will find it easier to wander in the boundless Wikipedia world.
