Popular e-book reader for multiple platforms comes to iOS.
Major e-book formats are ePub (including main features of ePub3), unencrypted Kindle azw3 (a.k.a. mobipocket) and fb2(.zip).
Other supported formats: RTF, doc (MS Word), HTML, plain text.
FBReader can synchronize your library, reading positions, bookmarks, etc. with the FBReader book network (https://books.fbreader.org/), a Google Drive™ based cloud service.
Alternatively, you can download books in the browser and open them using FBReader.
Rich set of options allows you to configure reading parameters and app behavior for your preference.
The free version of FBReader has few limitations. You cannot store more than ten books in the library. Built-in online translation feature is disabled. You can upgrade FBReader to the full version to unlock all the features.
The app ignores some XML errors in fb2 and ePub books.
Fixed synchronization issue that caused loss of positions during the first sync of a new device.
Ratings and Reviews
Especially good for iPhone X.
The iPhone version of this reader hasn’t been around for long, but it’s already better than the vast majority of readers out there. I appreciate the app’s minimalist aesthetic and customizability.
It’s especially great on the iPhone X. Most ebook readers don’t make good use of the iPhone X screen. This is the first I’ve seen to really take advantage of the screen real estate. If you are an X user especially, you won’t be disappointed.
PS—The maker of FBReader provides the best customer service I’ve experienced for any app.
I really really like this reader. If there was a way to mark the book as read on the book shelf, I would love love love this reader. If this option becomes available I hope you’ll let me know so I can give it 5 ⭐️’s.
Wish it had a Text to Speech
feature to read the book aloud.
I hope an update will bring this feature. Thanks
