Abstract (200 Character Limit) : 

Bookly is an easy-to-use Mxit app that is fully equipped with all the features of more advanced, electronic readers, including: (1) allowing users to browse books by name, author, or genre; (2) saving their progress as a bookmark, (3) creating their own virtual bookshelf to store books, and (4) getting rewarded with badges the more they read. Bookly currently has over 266 books available. The aim is to add more educational material, and eventually even textbooks. In this way, bookly gives kids direct access to valued literature and, in the process, plays a part in improving their education and getting them to read again. In essence, bookly turns the most basic cellphone into a powerful educational tool.
