  • Make sure your ebooks are in .epub 3 or later format. You can use tools like sigil or calibre.

  • Status bar to keep track of time / battery.
  • Read a book in a fixed-width way.
  • Place books in a folder named "books" on the root of your SD card. Some books can take a while to load! Be patient!

Seems to crash when using the home button to close the app. Not entirely sure why, since exiting other ways does not cause an issue.

Instructions:

Place books and the bookmarks.xml in a folder named "books" on the root of your SD card. Some books can take a while to load! Be patient!

Make sure your ebooks are in .epub 3 or later format. You can use tools like sigil or calibre.

I recommend going to DRM-Free bookshops or public domain websites such as Project Gutenberg. The reason I recommend this is because this app DOES NOT SUPPORT BOOKS WITH DRM.

IF THE FORMAT IS WRONG, THE APP WILL FREEZE/CRASH.

THIS APP IS ONLY TESTED WITH ENGLISH LANGUAGE BOOKS.
