Reading in your format

The PocketBook Reader reading app allows you to read comfortably, ad-free and absolutely free of charge on iOS devices, not only online but also without connecting to the Internet. The app supports all popular e-book formats, such as PDF (Adobe DRM), EPUB (Adobe DRM), DjVu, FB2,, MOBI, DOCX, RTF, TXT, CHM, HTML (basic), CBZ, CBR, CBT.

Audiobooks and Text-to-Speech

For readers who not only like to read ebooks, but also like to listen, the app supports audiobooks in all formats (mp3 and m4b). It also has a Text-to-Speech function. The sleep timer will turn off the audiobook automatically – so it will save the battery life of your smartphone. You can also take notes in chapters and change the speed of listening.

Virtual library in your pocket

The PocketBook Reader app is your personal virtual library in which you can read ebooks with many additional features. The reading app provides access to network directories (OPDS) and supports Adobe DRM. The ability to open a packed book saves your time. The reading app also offers a convenient search in books.

Maximum comfort of reading

The free PocketBook Cloud service syncs personal ebook libraries and reading settings between mobile devices, as well as E Ink ereaders online. Get the free storage for ebooks for comfortable reading in any format. Start reading an ebook on your smartphone and continue reading on the ereader at the same reading position. To log into the PocketBook Cloud, it is sufficient to use the login data (email address and password) of the account of your bookstore. If you’ve purchased ebooks on Google Books, you can sync them to your library by just one click. The integrated Dropbox service syncs your collected ebooks and provides a quick access to your files.

Database of personal knowledge

The PocketBook Reader app helps to write down and remember the most important you take out of a book. Highlight directly in the text, write comments and take notes with your fingers! Mark pages using bookmarks! Export notes to a separate file and send them by e-mail. The navigation inside the book is easy, the access to content and notes straightforward. Those who read large PDF or DJVU files will appreciate the cropping function. The PDF reflow feature allows you to easily reformat the text for display on small screens.

Assign, choose & personalize

Take advantage of the versatility of the reading settings of your reading app - change font size, text and background colour, customize the width of fields and much more. For most of the book formats, four basic colour themes are preset: night, day, user and newspaper. Also, the app has three reading modes: one page, two pages and scrolling. The pages can be scrolled by touching or gestures. Even automatic scrolling can be set.

Nice app

Nice app - I often use it when forgot my pocketbook 301 plus. But after last update it started to crash at start or after book change. Also, it refresh only ~2000 books in library, so I have to start it 5 times to refresh all my library.
UPD: Pocket book 301 plus has less memory and CPU power, then iPad mini 4, but it can index library without crashes. So it's a question about optimal algorithms/data structures, and I believe you have a lot of things to optimize.
PS: 2.11 still crashing on startup screen (I have 10k books in library)

Developer Response ,

You know: different devices, different OS'es, different classes, different purpose...
When library is about thousand books and more, there are crashes appears because of out of memory. Huge libraries - not main purpose of iOS reader for now. But we working on this issue and it will be fixed in future. Have a nice reading!

Looking forward to word wrap in pdf-reflow mode

This is my favorite app fo reading books.
The new feature “pdf-reflow” makes comfortable to read large pdf on a small screen.
We expect you to develop word wrap line ending feature in pdf-reflow mode, so that large words do not leave a lot of blank space.
Also, it would be nice to have djvu-reflow.

Good design but functionality is not perfect

I really like you app because of perfect design and some things which is comfortable for me... but few things which is really essential for me and I hope you can add it to the app and being the best book reader on iOS!
1. Scroll using Volume +/- buttons
2. When I start text selection on the first page and would like to continue it on the next , I can’t do it without interruption
3. I would like to see the progress on page bottom in percent but not in pages. Or maybe some option to switch percent/pages encounters.

Thanks a lot!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for review.

"1. Scroll using Volume +/- buttons"
No. It's denied by Apple Interface Guidelines.
You can scroll by tap or swipe gesture. Or you can start autoscroll in Scroll mode by double tap.

"2. When I start text selection on the first page and would like to continue it on the next , I can’t do it without interruption"
Maybe you have idea how to avoid accidental scroll? We have any :( If you have some, write us.

"3. I would like to see the progress on page bottom in percent but not in pages. Or maybe some option to switch percent/pages encounters."
Yes. We plan to make this in new design.

Have a good reading!
