Bluefire – new reading app for iOS

Bluefire have just announced their new app for iPhone & iPad. It boasts support for Adobe DE DRM as well as formatting options equal to Stanza.  You can even download or buy ebooks from inside the app.Normally I'd give an opinion of the app but lately I've been having the strangest problem with my iPod Touch. I can't download apps. But I have been following the tweets of a couple people who have it, and they are impressed.

The following are a couple of tweets that I tried to embed. Unfortunately, they didn't come through the RSS feed. I won't embed them again.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The app is great! From my perspective (Poland) it’s a solution to bring Polish e-books to iPad and iPhone users. Most Polish e-bookstores use Adobe DRM, but none of them is having their own app yet.
    Bluefire reminds me of early Stanza. Hopefully in a next update they’ll add a couple of e-bookstores.
