It's buried in the second level of settings, but doesn't work as well as the Palm OS version did. You have to go into the settings to start it and disable screen timeout separately to get it to work. I've abandoned the program in favor of Moon+ Reader, which has an autoscroll icon in the toolbar and automatically disables the screen timeout when the program is open. It also allows you to regulate the speed in several different ways. I used the volume up/down button customization option, but there are screen swipe options, too.

Moon+ Reader won't read .pdb ebooks, so you have to remove the DRM and convert them to epubs to use it. If you have DRM-free ebboks, then Calibre ebook converter is easy to use and free (although donations are welcome!).

If I download an apk via google app market, where does it download to? I would like to be able to copy it so that I can put it on a device that doesn't have the app market.

The app is installing the minute you download it so you would need to make a backup of the app. This can be done with the file-manager Astro also available on the market.

1. Install Astro
2. Open Astro
3. Press menu
4. Press tools
5. Press Application manager/backup (a list of installed app's should appear)
6. Select the once you want to backup by marking the checkbox
7. Press menu
8. Press backup (The backup process should now start)
9. The apk-files should now be available in dir: /sdcard/backups/apps

There is an add-on for Astro which would give you bluetooth transfer capabilities enabling you to send and receive files.

I however prefer to use SwiFTP which turns your android device into an FTP-server for easy access to the files.

When you've installed Astra and opened it goto:
menu -> tools -> application manager/backup
This should get you a list of all apps installed. Mark the once you want to backup
When you're done press menu -> backup (Astra should now start the backup process for you).

If you go into your sd-card you should now be able to see the backed up apk-files in directory: backups/apps
Good instructions, except that it is "Astro" and not "Astra", unless there is a program with a similar name that I have not heard of. I use Astro in just the manner that you describe to get an APK for one device that I have that is not Market eligible.

Yeah, I noticed the misspelling and have changed it. Thanks.

Thanks for the instructions. I have the backup app already. So that puts me one step closer. I will try this today.

Thank you for pointing out the support for ColorDict!!!

I just deleted Aldiko and all the other readers that I have been trying out since Moon+ Reader can do everything that I want and more.

For any that use library eBooks from Overdrive, they have released an app, Overdrive Media Console, for droid that now supports eBooks. You have to put your Adobe ID into the settings, but after that you can download directly from/into the phone, no USB cables required. I'm a happy camper about that!

WMA audio files still require the computer version of Media Console, however.

It's a clunky reader, but better than all the fussing required for transfer that I had to do before. Yay.

Thanks for that, but I'm just gonna stick with my standard process. Always purchase/download to my computer, strip drm, add to Calibre and transfer to desired reader. (and of course back up the Calibre library) Works great for me. And I get to use whatever ebook reader, app or device I want.

HELP! Can't find Aldiko Import Folder on Samsung Epic

Hi folks. . .total noob here, so be gentle I just got a Samsung Epic, and installed Aldiko on it. Tried to add an ebook, but can't find the "import" folder, or the "ebooks" folder, for that matter. When I use the "My Files" app, and look on the SD card, there's just an Aldiko folder, with no subfolders. When I connect my phone to my Macbook, I get the dreaded "there is no SD card found" message (huh?) Do I need to uninstall then reinstall the program? Any help greatly appreciated,

G

First, when you connect your Epic to your computer Android should pop up a message asking how you want to connect to your computer with "Disk Drive" being one of your options. In that popup there is a check box for "Don't Ask Again", so if that box is checked and a different option was previously selected then you will not see the Epic as a disk drive. You should be able to remedy that by pulling down the status bar in Android's main window and selecting "Disk Drive" as the connection method after the Epic is connected to your computer.
If you can not find the /eBooks/import folder you could always create it your self? However, I believe that Aldiko will create it if it is non-existent the first time that ask you Aldiko to scan for books on the SD card.
