Getting Close to Perfect
Murasaki has gradually developed into a powerhouse ePUB reader. It doesn’t have a library database, but perhaps that is for the best, because it doesn’t tie me into importing and categorizing a book before I can read it or (if I have produced or converted it) test it. I like the ability to select my own font, size, line height, etc. I like the ability to choose scrolling or flipping pages. I like the ability to choose where I want to place my ePUB files.
Good book reader
I've tried several other book readers and this is the one I prefer. It's got a very straightforward interface and it does the job. I read normally in iBooks, but there are times when I don't want to import a book into iBooks, so I need a simpler reader. For me, it's Murasaki: I've made it the default app for .epub, for example.
