Zola Books Makes iOS App Social

zolabooksZola Books has updated its iOS reading app. The update comes a couple of months after the company acquired the social recommendation app Bookish.The acquisition brought new technology and social sharing capabilities to Zola. With the new update, Zola is adding the ability for readers to add comments in a book on a line by line basis, as well as to share inside of books. The app is also now preloaded with 17 classic books. In addition, the app update now allows users to sign in using Twitter, Facebook, Google + and Goodreads.

The update comes as the social reading business has been shaken up in recent weeks. Last month, Readmill revealed plans to shutter its social reading platform. On the flip side, Wattpad announced $46 million in funding.
