That depends on the firmware of the ipad as well. I wanted to upgrade to the newest blufire reader app, but got the message that it required ios 4.3

Many thanks to all.

I guess not emptying the Recycle bin for a long time has some benefits. I found Bluefire Reader versions 1.6 thru 1.8 in the bin.

I had to 'fool' iTunes in order to get BFR 1.7 onto my iPod Touch. Just putting it into the iTunes Mobile Applications folder wasn't enough to get iTunes to recognise the earlier version of BFR. I had to remove the latest BFR v1.9 & rename BFR v1.7 to BFR v1.9. No problem syncing to the iPod Touch & BFR now runs fine on my iPod Touch. Final step: delete the old, renamed, version of BFR & replace it with the 'real' BFR v1.9, which my iPhone 4S can use.

BTW, when I synced my iPod Touch with the 'real' BFR v1.9 in iTunes, it wouldn't update BFR because of the iOS limitation. So, all is now well in BFR land.

Hello Micah.

Do you have any idea when support for OPDS catalogs (calibre) support will appear?

It's a major pain to have sync to iTunes. After all this time, I fail to understand why such an important feature has not been added.

Do you even intend to add the ability to download books? At all?

I asked this question a long time ago, I dont think Micah ever answered. So I am assuming the answer is no. OTOH you can download books by storing them in the cloud... dropbox, sugarsync, box.net etc. "Open in" works wonders.

Hallelujah! We finally figured out how to fix the problem that Bluefire Reader had on Jailbroken devices. OMG that took soooooooo long. And it sucked soooooooo bad. I hate, hate, hate jailbroken devices (although I had one that I really like at one time, until Bluefire came along boooooo.) So, so happy!

BTW, for those of you that like reading library books, here is a hidden gem in Bluefire Reader. You can go into mobile safari on your iOS device and enter a certain kind of link (easier actually if you save that URL in some kind of web page or document where you can tap on it later rather than re-typing each time). it goes like this - in Mobile Safari (or in a URL) type: bluefirereader://nav/web/http://www.yourlocallibrarysite.org

example for Seattle Public Library: bluefirereader://nav/web/http://spl.org

When you do this Bluefire Reader should open and you should be able to browse the library site right there inside Bluefire Reader, and when you go to check out a book, it will download directly into the app and you can read it instantly. No side loading silliness necessary. If this works for you (should with any Overdrive powered library site) please post here. I'd love to know it works for people (we actually did this for ourselves as we read library books a lot) - but I figure some other folks might find it handy too... Happy Reading.

Works for the San Francisco Public Library (sfpl.org) home page. In addition, I tried bluefirereader://nav/web/http://sfpl.lib.overdrive.com to get to the SFPL e-library login page and that works as well.

I guess you can store it as a shortcut in your mobile browser.

I made a web page with a link on it and then pinned that page to my desktop. Another way is to make a document with a link. I've not tried it in an epub and then loaded it into BFR. That might work too.

There's all kinds of alternatives to iTunes side loading. Dropbox, email, web links, etc. Though I agree, OPDS catalog support would be awesome. But that would likely run afoul of Apple's App Store policies for ebook apps, as OPDS feeds could include "Buy" links, and it would be really hard for us to "filter" those out from other types of web links.

I couldn't get the link to open when I saved it as a PDF document and opened it in Bluefire. I was able to save the link in dropbox. I can click on the link in dropbox and bring up the library site in Bluefire Reader.

Umm, why do you have to filter them at all? Nobody else does. Not a good reason not to include it, Micah, can't help feeling there's another reason entirely.

You might want to try the free aHomeIcon app from the Apple app store on your iPad. The process has several steps but it's not that hard to do. Copy the URL you want to use, select the URL button in the aHomeIcon app (on the 2d page), it will ask if you want to use the URL from the clipboard, and then creates a webapp that you add to your home screen (this is the step that's a little tricky since you do this twice, once in the app and once in Safari). The app give you the ability change the icon and title (on the 1st page) before you do the add-to step. There are a couple of video tutorials in the app if you need help. Still playing around with it but it looks good for the simple needs I have.

I believe there are Android apps that can create a home screen widget to launch a URL but I've not used Android in several months so I'm not up-to-date on the choices.

Hi Micah,

I'm really liking the latest version of Bluefire Reader. You guys have come a long way!

I hate to bring this up, especially since many have requested this feature, but is there any way to turn off auto-hyphenation? I ask because I proofread epubs, and the auto-hyphenation makes it more difficult to check for inappropriate hyphens.

P.S. Being able to adjust line-height would also be greatly appreciated. In fact, if you made it possible to toggle auto-hyphenation on/off and adjust line-height, Bluefire would do everything I want in an ereader app.

Thank you!
