Menestrello

By Alberto Pettarin

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Description

Menestrello is the perfect app for reading+listening EPUB 3 Audio-eBooks.

Menestrello is the official build of Minstrel (http://www.readbeyond.it/minstrel/), the FLOSS hybrid reading app.

Menestrello is designed for EPUB 3 Audio-eBooks, that is, reflowable text and embedded, synchronized audio. Other formats (EPUB 2, EPUB 3 FXL, etc.) that can be loaded in the app are not officially supported.

To add an EPUB 3 Audio-eBook to the app you can copy the EPUB file from your PC to your device with iTunes (Apps > Menestrello), or you can download the EPUB in Safari and then select "Open with Menestrello".

You can download several EPUB 3 Audio-eBooks for free from http://www.readbeyond.it/ (no registration required)

Customer Reviews

Great EPUB 3 reader

I work with students with disabilites who have need of many of the features this app provides.

At this writing, this app is one of a small few that support the reading of MathML and media overlays contained in EPUB3 books.

Some of the other features I like are its varied screen layout (page vs fixed), screen colors (font and background), brightness, and search options.

It is also free!
