Web browser based Ibis Reader updated

Liza Daly just posted over on the Threepress Consulting blog about the improvements in the latest version of Ibis Reader. Some of the new features include:

Improved pagination and position-tracking

We’ve changed the method of moving from page to page and remembering where you left off. Books should load faster, and it should be easier to understand whether you’re moving forward or backward in the page.

Relative book length and reading position in My Books

In your list of books on the device, we now display some hints about the length of the book and how far you’ve read in it.

Also on this screen we tried to make it more clear that your “Online Bookshelf” is a link. Many people were confused by the old layout, which made that link seem more like a title. Clicking on the Online Bookshelf link will take you to the cloud library and allow you to pull down individual books to read on the current device.

Online Bookshelf cover images and metadata

For new books that you add starting with this release, you’ll be able to see cover images in your online bookshelf.

About Nate Hoffelder (11220 Articles)
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."
