I do like the balance of formatting options. Respect the publisher's layout, then selective overrides. A good balance between artistic/typographic sensibilities and practical reading considerations.
Add your own OPDS. Yea, that WAS working, but form page was a bit rough, so we pulled it for the moment. Should be back in there soon. e.g. anywhere from 1-2 weeks. That's all html stuff so no update needed, we can push it down as soon at is is good enough.

We do plan to push an update in a couple weeks with some fixes, and some nice goodies too. That is when some additional stores will appear as well.

Hi, does Bluefire support direct purchases? I could not see a way to purchase DRMed content from the app (all of it seems like free content). Is that a limitation of the current version of the app or if you do support it, how do you handle the .acsm file that is sent from the CS4 server? I'm testing your DRM capabilities and the only way I can get protected ePub content is to first license it thru ADE which creates the protected ePub and then I email it to Bluefire. Am I missing something?



Thanks.
Direct purchases are supported via a protocol link in mobile Safari - LIKE THIS:
"bluefirereader.com://fulfill/http://www.yourcoolsite/yourcoolfolder/yourcoolbook.acsm"

or if not protected:
"bluefirereader.com://download/http://www.yourcooletcetc.epub (or .pdf) UPDATE, this is not ready yet as I thought (dang) more on this soon...

We also support direct download or fulfillment links in the OPDS feeds. (which can be behind log-in - e.g. like Feedbooks "Profile"). We need to publish some technotes.... oy, the "to do" list is long.

Worth repeating:
Download links for Safari Mobile into Bluefire Reader are:
ACS4 Protected content:
"bluefirereader.com://fulfill/http://www.yourcoolsite/yourcoolfolder/yourcoolbook.acsm"

Brilliant news - I have everything on Dropbox with Calibre, so access via OPDS will be great. Best of luck, it is good to see someone approach the rendering of an ebook as more than a simple matter of getting some words on a page.

Ah, I was bummed, but I just remembered that if you have a link with .epub file, it should present the "open in" menu, which will include the Bluefire Reader option. Protocal link is way cooler, but also less interoperable. So foundation is good. I'm a big advocate of inter-operable. e.g. If we can make it easy to move files from BFR to other readers, we will.

Do you have an ETA for the update? We're anxious to provide direct access to protected ePub via BFR. Thanks!

Does the Bluefire 'Adobe DRM' include updates for the B&N extensions? In other words will it read stuff bought at B&N?

Library

Consider me an average user. Lazy , don't care to have multiple apps. If I want tp buy a book for my iPad I will use kindle app or the built in reader. However you will distinguish yourself is the ability for me to download a book from my public library to read. Most use epub adobe digital editions thru overdrive. I've tried emailing to myself, using iTunes share function but I still get an access denied error. This is the holy Grail. Is it forthcoming and when?

I have tried this with ADE ePub titles, dragging them into the app folder in iTunes and it works nicely. I had previously tried txtr, but you had to upload your books to their server and that was a step too many!
