I wasn't going to downgrade again, but I did. I'm back to Stanza 3.1 and its not struggling at all with Red Mars.

eReader has been gone from the store for a while. I still have it and I put it back on my phone but it is so old it doesnt know about sideloading, and the books stores are no longer available, it seems. I tried to get it to connect to fictionwise but could not. I suppose the one good thing... if you *can* get it to talk to book stores... is that it works in iOS5.x, which calls into question the coding for all the others. Clearly the ereader code is basic and simple and is not broken with updates. The breakage is at store level.

If you go to the software section on ereader.com itself you'll see that there are no longer any entries for iOS at all.
