SourceForge seems to be having some problems. I had the same problem and finally tried using Free Download Manager to get the APK. FDM has the capability to resume aborted downloads. I saw a bunch of messages in FDM about server disconnects when downloading the APK, but FDM was able to get it successfully by resuming after each server disconnect.

SourceForge was hacked last week so I assume the problems are caused by that and their trying to clean things up.

Version 3.0.43-4 is available on SourceForge.

Advanced bookmarks are implemented.
Very useful for proofreading.

To add selection bookmark:
- select text range
- press add bookmark button on selection toolbar
Create bookmark dialog appears.
- select type of bookmark (comment or correction)
- for comment you may enter comment text
- for correction, edit text
- press Ok to save bookmark

List of bookmarks can be opened using menu/bookmarks.
Short press on bookmark - go to bookmark.
Long press - context menu: add / edit / goto / delete / export

Export function saves comment and correction bookmarks to text file, to the same directory original book is located in, with the name of original book, appended with ".bmk.txt"

Export file format is human readable and easy to understand.

Device: Pandigital Novel
best version for Android 1.5?

Hi Buggins,

I installed CoolReader on my black Pandigital Novel (running Android 1.5) and while the app opens books (epub format) and I can flip pages back-and-forth, quite often the app crashes when I click on 'Options' or 'Go To' or 'Bookmarks'. Every 5 or 6 times, I can actually get to the right screen ('Go To', for example, shows me 'Go to page #' or 'Go to position %'), but most often, it just crashes.

Is there a version that you can recommend which will run in v1.5? (I'm not sure what version I've installed - I downloaded from SourceForge a couple of weeks ago, but I can't seem to find a the version # within the app and I've deleted the original apk file.)

Thanks,

Most likely, it's known OutOfMemory error, occured when trying to allocate surface bitmap buffer for dialogs. It's reproduced on some devices (not only Android 1.5). It's occurs if where is SurfaceView widged present in activity window. This buffer is shared among applications, and it's size is limited (8Mb usually.

Only first versions of CoolReader (w/o page flipping animation) don't use SurfaceView, and hence don't have such bug.
I'm working on fix - to get dialogs working w/o window surface buffer, but not successful for now.

Thanks for the update. I'll keep watching your posts for new versions.

I hope you have enabled the setting to select text on double tap. (Defaultly, it is enabled.) So, just double tap the word. Three small buttons appear at bottom of screen. Click on "abc". It will open colordict with the word.

P.S. Default dictionary setting seems to be Fora dictionary. You have to change it to colordict.

In CoolReader's Options configurations select the dictionary that you have installed. Then whenever you select a word with a double tap in CoolReader a dialog will pop asking what you want to do with it. Select the a-z icon and your preselected dictionary will open with the word definition. You can also configure CoolReader to go directly to the dictionary instead of bringing up the dialog.

Thanks patilsaurabhr and Dave_S, I'm dreathfully sorry, it was my fault, I was using an outdated version, after installing the current version everything was ok and worked as you said.

A tip with Fora, if you can't install fora dictionary package (out of memory issue), add dictionaries to colordict and then import them to Fora. Every thing went smooth for me.

Regards
