ubook for Android

Looks like a beta version of ubook for android is out. So far its looks like it is just a port of the windows mobile version not something written for android from scratch

The below is a forum comment from its author

Ok,
Here it goes: The bad news is that I am so disappointed with the poor performance of the Java (Dalvik/Android) version that I am putting it aside for now.
The good? Thanks to the brilliant people behind the Android os, the NDK allowed me to port 95% of (Legacy 2010) uBook in two weeks:



It is (not too) far from finished, the fonts are the big item on my list.
Otherwise, here's the APK for you to try:

uBook Legacy for Android


It works on my (Canadian) black Pandigital (Android 1.5) and on the emulator (Android 2.2), both with good speed results.

More to come...

For old times sake I downloaded and tried it last night. It used to be my favored reader—maybe it was just too late and I was too tired—but first off I couldn't figure out how to get it to open up bigger than cellphone size, and even though I was somewhat familiar with the interface it seemed labor intensive and too busy, w/too many icons.

To many too's here, but too bad! The developer at Gower Point is really responsive and helpful.

I'll stick w/CoolReader and Aldiko. MoonReader.

Thanks for the heads up tho.
