thank you for the link!

i appreciate all developments for kindle which let us use other file format's like epub, which i consider is the most important one.

I find it a huge restriction, that you have to convert ebooks from other sources than amazon. And i'm missing also features to use my own fonts. Also one has to be registered to create collections. And if you don't like whispernet, you need a fake registrationand this is also only possible with usbnetwok-hack, which seems very complicated.

fbkindle is also a good choice. but i don't find the user interface in the library very comfortable.

has anyone tested coolreader so far?

i wonder, why there is so few interest in different solutions.
well there is duokan, but i'm from germany and the umlauts still doesn't seem to work!

greetings knorst

I tried CR with Turkish books and it displays "ğüşıöç" without any problem.

Duokan lite also displays this characters.

A question for those who have compared the usability, functionality, and other features glyuchnosti fbridera and kulridera - there's some big difference, or all the differences only cosmetic?

That's my opinion (and I enjoyed FBKindle'om with his first days). In general, very similar projects. FBKindle has more options, but to use interface and setup is very easy.

In less sympathetic CoolReader'a settings (but with the latest updates almost everything you need in them), but much easier to use interface.

CoolReader has a nice file browser (and it is understandably very, very important if a lot of books uploaded to the device). Understands the Russian names of files.

FBReader reads better mobi (if it's someone important). CoolReader appears frequently in krakozyabrami mobi files does not seem to picture.

With these fonts chitalok work is in many ways. Those fonts that look fine on FBKindle, to look weird CoolReader'e and ugly. But brute force is possible to find good fonts, well, or play with contrast and size. It was, perhaps, esdinstvennym neudobstovm transition from FBKindle to CoolReader'a.

In short, CoolReader more friendly to the average user, navigate the interface simpler and clearer, with fb2 copes, and if you plan to read only fb2, then CoolReader can safely recommend to use.

Personally, for me to finally come CoolReader'om when I no longer feel like all my fb2 bibloteku perekodirvat in PDF with fb2pdf, but I can normally read and fully fb2. Fonts picked up, picked up a size, padding as necessary, line a distance of 90% - and beauty.

At the same convert fb2 to pdf, the official software of the Kindle makes it very, well, just very big margins on the edges, so that climbs to the page is much smaller than in CoolReader'e.


On mobi files it displays Turkish characters without any problem. However
Toc and links in a file isn't supported. It doesn't display images in a book also.

Did you know, that by tweaking .ini file in CoolReader directory you can enable some additional features such as two-column view, white letters on black background ?

Looks good on first sight.
There seems to be a problem with German Umlauts in MOBI files, but I don't need CoolReader for those. With EPUBs it works.
Is there a way to add a space after each paragraph by editing something in the ini file? Could not find anything...

I have the second problem on my Kindle 3.1 also. A workaround for this is pressing quickly the 5-way_ right then 5-way_down. Then resetting stops. I don't know a real solution for this problem for now.
EDIT: They fixed this problem on ver 0.1.2

thanks, that seems to work. i also got the app to respond more quickly by resetting the kindle first.

there's another bug...sometimes the screen will go completely blank when choosing 'open' from the menu.

it's completely blank....i've had the screen looks like yours already when there's no files in a directory.

usually i can sort the problem by pressing the back button so it's not a fatal bug or anything.

what i've found so far with cool reader is it handles text files rather better than kindle. it seems to format large paragraphs better. mobi stuff gets corrupted a bit tho with missing pictures and links.

i haven't tried an epub book yet.

This might help: download it again and replace the files.

Did you try to open an English ePub? or a txt, html file?

full of suggestions:
1, 3, 4, 5, 17, 18, ​​19, 21, 22, 24, 27

4) press the button on the joystick input

In the file browser:
Shift Up a transition to the first line
Shift Down to the last

(quoted from this post)


Fixed bugs, new properties:
Spoiler:

Updating an already installed Cool Reader to the new version
In my opinion version has too many innovations of this update would recommend Cool Reader completely removed from the device folder and cr3 qtKindle, and replaced by the corresponding of the new version.
But you can try to upgrade and following instructions.
1. Download the archive
2. First, delete the folder qtKindle from Kindle, and then copy the new one from the archive.
3. Update the file (copy along with the replacement) cr3 cr3 from folder
4. Copy stylesheet.qss, keydefs.ini, keymaps.ini from your cr3 \ data in the same on the Kindle
You may need to clear the cache and history ( delete the file cr3hist.bmk from the folder cr3\data and all the files from cr3\data\cache)

Fixed bugs
1.In the list of "Recent Books" swap points "author" and "name", because even with the small font on the Kindle 3 does not always fit the two points, and the likelihood that people will read two books at the same time an author more than two books with the same name
2.And then there is an unusual bug. Open the search window(F), and now press (Alt + Shift), to switch on the interface Kindl, and, at least for me, remains an active field itself to enter the text from the search box. A transition back (againAlt + Shift) on the window is, again, only the input box, and everything else from the search becomes white.
3.In the main menu Alt + Esc to fix Alt + Back
4.Do not work to switch the tabs window \ page \ Stylesjoystick.
5.Not work correctly bookmark. In any book bookmarks are created correctly as long as not go to one of them, all subsequent copies of the bookmarks are the one for which the transition was made. Bookmarks created by the transition to work properly and after it.
6.If you read the book, then closed the CR, then the PC has renamed this book or delete a folder, where there was this book, then later after the launch of CR flies naturally failed to open the document, then try to open the file manager, but instead of folders with books, empty window (a blank sheet ) does not respond to attempts to navigate. Maybe we should tie the setting (user selectable) directory by default? that in failing to display the last-read the folder by pressing "O" CR just open the default directory
7.In the list of "newly discovered" any files mobi designated as "-".
8.As I mentioned in the list of last opened books, author and title, not all types of files are displayed. The latter column (file name) appears to mobi and fb2.zip, but alignment is unfortunate, as can be seen only the end of the file name, which usually contains the name of those who generated the book. I would like to correct the alignment that you can see the file name from the beginning.
