Ratings and Reviews

Excellent eBook Reader


This app combines many of the features you would like to see in a good eBook reader:

1. Drag and drop loading of eBook files (I've tried the ePub format; others are possible).
2. Can handle multiple files and shows you a library view of all your books.
3. Easy viewing screen.
4. Remembers where you last read; ability to bookmark other locations.
5. Ability to highlight and otherwise mark up your book.
6. Seems to work without glitches.

Worth spending the $ to get the features you'd like.



I am very impressed with its fuctionallity and ease of use!

This app has given me something I spent a long time looking for. A program on my computer where I can read all my ebooks no matter the format I have them in. Prior to this I had to use three readers. One for Kobo, one for epub and one for pdf's. The only things I had to do was to deDRM the Kobo books and rename all the files with the author first in order for them to display organised by author.

My only quible with the program is that I wish you could set the display and view settings and hve them become the defaults instead of haveing to do it each time you open the program or open an individual book, as the defaults are not what I would choose.

If you are looking for a reader I strongly recomend this one.

Great app


It is amazing to find one app that is capable of opening all popular kind of e books. Opening books in differerent tabs makes it easy to extract information for research work.
Amazing work.
