Shortcovers supports Adobe DRM, but since you can't download the books onto your Android device it's debatable where to count it.

Frankly (and I said this in the Gear Diary review) Shortcovers is an awful, terrible, nasty application that should not be used unless you are wildly desperate.

Kobo says they know it sucks and they'll have a new version out in a few months. Hopefully it's light years better.
