Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Alice is a pleasant to use eBook reader that supports both PDF and ePub books. (Non Digital Right Managed DRM.) Alice uses Spotlight to locate files in your home directory that it can open so there is no need import eBooks into Alice. Alice was developed to make reading eBooks enjoyable.
What's New in Version 2.1.3
- Save toolbar changes
- Support dragging items from Storage to Library and from Library to Storage. This makes it easier to move items to and from Storage.
This is nice, lightweight app that reads both epub and pdf files with a clean display and useful navigation options. Most importantly, it reads the files from directories of your choosing without swallowing them all up into some mega-file colossus. It auto-creates its library from watched folders that you specify and reads the Spotlight data. (I do wish it would let you search by author as well as title though.) Best reader I’ve found so far.
