The Freading application is for reading EPUB books and PDF books. The application was developed for users of the Freading Ebook Service.

The Freading (free reading) Ebook Service was developed by Library Ideas, LLC and is sold to libraries of all types around the world. End users are registered cardholders of participating libraries. Check with your local library for participation.

The end user should use their browser to navigate the library website, then download the book from a library website into this application. Once in the application, the EPUB or PDF book can be explored and read.

The Freading application is designed to lend full support for Adobe DRM and uses Adobe ID for Authentication.

The Freading application includes many features that you would expect for a good reading experience such as tap or swipe to turn pages, remembering the last page read, and selectable text size.

New version not as good

The app now loses my place in the book, even from just changing orientation. Also, returning books doesn't free up more download permissions in the Freading collection - they just stay in the list until they expire. Books that you've returned should not count against your limits.

Doesn’t work

I can’t open the books I downloaded. They show up in a weird list but when I click on library nothing happens.

Can't use app anymore

I can't log in now that I upgraded to iOS 9 because the "app security transport requires a secure connection"
