Very nice free app


Very nice free ePub reader, does exactly what it says. Kudos to the developer(s).
On a side note, in the book list view, the book title label isn't tall enough and the bottom part of letters like g and y get cut off.

Supports RTL


This is the only ebook reader (with the exception of iBook) that fully supports right-to-left scripts such as Arabic, Persian and Hebrew. It can render the fonts and it also has right to left pagination.

EPUB3 and MathML at last!


This is a wonderful application that can deal effectively with Epub3 and MathML. Visually it is very good indeed, making it a pleasure to read files.

My only wish is that the rendering of MathML could be done using MathJax.
