Customer Reviews

Good book reader

I've tried several other book readers and this is the one I prefer. It's got a very straightforward interface and it does the job. I read normally in iBooks, but there are times when I don't want to import a book into iBooks, so I need a simpler reader. For me, it's Murasaki: I've made it the default app for .epub, for example.

Good job.
