ebook previewer for all devices

For those without all devices, I wondered what previewers are available for the below:
Can anyone add to this?

Have you found previewers consistent with the real-world devices?

Any devices similar enough to provide assurance if eBook looks good on device A, it will also look good on device B?

Can't you remove Kindle from the list? The Kindle does not read ePub, they must be converted to mobipocket, and there are a few possible converters which will produce different output.

... or you change the title to "ebook previewer for all devices"

For Sony Reader you can use ADE, since that is the reading engine. Isn't there a Nook reader from B&N?

For Sony Reader I suggest Sony Reader Apps, for PC or Mac. This is probably the best previewer for all EInk devices that use mobile Adobe Digital Editions. It uses the same RMSDK software from Adobe as these devices do. There are some differences, and in fact older versions of this app were closer to emulating EInk devices than the latest version (the older versions always used a 600x800 "screen" size for example).

Is it possible to change title? Can't see option.

If you click on "edit" and then "Go Advanced", you should be able to change the title, but maybe you need to be a moderator to do so (I know, however, that you can change titles in the ebook uploads section without being a moderator).

I've changed the title and moved the thread to the Workshop, as it is not ePub-specific.

Yes, there is a Nook reader (beta)..... However, just like the Nook it is a little buggy. (at least on a mac).
