iReader beta now available for download – free

The developers of iReader have released the latest beta as a free download. This is unusual for them; the app is sold in the Marketplace for $1.99. This is a reading app for Android that supports eReader, Mobi, CHM, and TXT. I think it doesn't get the attention it deserves. (That might be a good thing, actually). It's most notable feature is that it supports DRM, both eReader and Mobipocket. At least, that's what the product page says; I haven't tried it yet (I don't have access to the Marketplace). Note that the app doesn't remove the DRM; it merely reads ebooks encumbered with DRM. From the announcement:

I uploaded beta for free version here. Please go to Downloads page and try to use it.

The changes are:

  • Auto-scrolling in cover mode (not scrolling mode)
  • Support TTF/TTC font file. You need set you font file directory in "General Setttings" and then you can select the font in "Font Settings"
  • Real book page turning, like iBooks. There is still some little bug, I will fix them soon and improve its performance.
  • Separately set screen brightness for Day theme and Night theme.
  • Remove "Delete All" in file browser.
  • Some bugs fix.

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."
