New Poll: Which ebook reader on iOS?

Its 9 months since I posted the last poll, and in the last day or so, it seems Stanza is confirmed working on iOS6. So I'm wondering now what people have done in the last 9 months: still using what you were back then, or made a change.

As usual, not all options (though there are more this time) are included, but obviously I've left Stanza in, so add in your comments the reader you use if I have not mentioned it, or have chosen to leave it out.

I've removed ReadMe because it has not been updated in over a year (shame, it was shaping up well) and I have added a couple of new ones, or options I failed to mention last time.

Again, if you use something not mentioned, I'd love to see you post the iTunes link so we can all have a look. Also, because I forgot to make it multiple choice, just vote for your most used reader Thanks

This should probably be a multiple-choice poll, unless you want to know which one is preferred? I have Kindle and iBooks but tend to use mostly iBooks because I avoid buying e-books on Amazon. As apps, they are both fine for my needs.

I still prefer iBooks. I can load my own books and it syncs between my iPad and iPod touch. The margins are a bit wide, but the convenience of iBooks makes up for that minor flaw.

I use Kindle. It is still the fastest reader with the most features. The only thing it's missing is copy-and-paste.

I don't read much on my iPod Touch, but when I do I almost always use the Kindle app (I use it more on my Android phone).

I'm sure I'll be doing more reading on iOS as I pre-ordered the new iPhone and I'll probably continue to primarily use the Kindle app when I'm out and about.

Surprised the Nook app isn't in the poll.

Agree, this needs to be a multiple-choice. I've got three of the listed apps on my iPad3. I could care less if they sync between Apple devices only. I need them to sync with eInk devices and PC apps, and only one does that.

Stanza on iPhone (though I do very little reading on that now I've got a Kobo), and CloudReaders for graphic novels on my iPad.

I primarily use the Kindle app because I also have a Kindle Touch and buy most of my ebooks for that. Just wondering why the Nook app was left out of the poll? I use that as well because I still have a bunch of Nook Books and a magazine subscription through Barnes & Noble.

Didnt forget Readmill.. Never heard of it. Must check it out, thanks
