The ultimate reader app: Gyan Reader

Saw that on Good Ereader. Seems to be the best reader app on the market. SUpport epub3, css3 and html5. Avaible on Google Play for the moment but in development for the iOS.

Google Play

Good E-Reader

Helicon Books official site

Nice to see such a powerful tool on the android platform. Hope it's gonna be a good competitor to iBook.

Anyone tried it yet???

Oh, damn!

Thanks Nate for your input, really nice from you!

I was really expecting a good Android alternative for the iBook app. I'm really sad there's no competitor to it. Maybe the readium app will be THE thing to get.

If you are looking for a good reader app for iPad, check out the Marvin app. There is a thread about it here on the Apple forum and everyone seems to concur that it is the next best thing since Stanza and a worthy replacement for it. Which is very high praise! It is only available on the iPad right now, but is supposed to be available for iPhone in a couple of months.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm looking for an alternative on a Android platform. Actually, there's no real alternative to iBook.

If you want a quality reader app, you have to go to iGadget and use iBook, that is sad.

I disagree. I routinely use both Android and IOS readers, and there are several ereader apps on Android that are at least the equal of iBooks.

Perhaps if you were to list your requirements, a more meaningful conversation could be held.

It sounds like this user needs Epub3 support, otherwise Moon Reader or Aldiko would suffice.

Well, yeah, that would narrow things down a bit. I'd be interested to see a document that uses Epub3. Anybody know where I can get a good sample?

There's an epub3 archive:

I'm more interesting creating the epub3 books and then being able to see them properly. I've tried a couple of readers with a simple test output from Bookbin which claims to output real epub3 documents in a wysiwyg way. Mostly taking user manuals and instead of static images showing you a point, a video showing you the process.

I'll take a look at the samples posted.

Hey Ti-Ron
Your suggested Good e-Reader app seem nice but I haven't used it over my Android device. I have been using Moon+Reader app on my phone and it works great for me.

One man's killer app is in another man's garbage bin.

You can have all the bells and whistles you want, but personally I would rather have a simple reader that integrates into the file browser. I would much rather sort my own books in my own folder structure than rely on the programmers taste in "bookshelf" building.

Concentrate on getting the book to display correctly first. Once you have that licked, then you can write your bookshelf wrapper around that, just leave me the option to ignore it if I need to.

File browser integration is an OS feature so virtually every Android reader app integrates with any Android file browser. Simply use your file browser of choice and launch the book then choose the reader app you wish to use to read the book. Works just like Windows in this regard.

I agree with you that's why I chose to use Moon+ Reader Pro as my reader for ePubs, it provides me the reading experience I like, but I ignore their bookshelf (nice as it is) and navigate to and launch all of my books using Calibre Companion.
