Agree 100% with your opinion! That superfluous interface and lack of decent folder support is one of the reasons I dropped Aldiko some time ago. One other reason is Aldiko's extremely weak format support. Both of these reasons make CoolReader 3 a much better choice for me.

I have to agree to (even though I'm very new with Cool Reader). The "bookshelf" type of picking books and even a library centric format is useless for me. I change what I read every day, 3-4 new proofs to read and yesterday's are deleted.

I don't like wooden bookshelves, too.
But author / series / title grouping and search - could be useful.

Not a big fan of bookshelfs I see. Then how about an option to change the background of the file browser? (I'm not a big fan of black and white).

I see that CR3 does support cover images in the file browser. But none of my epub-files is showing any cover images (the images is showing fine in Aldiko on my phone). What am I doing wrong?

Either way CR3 is still great with or without a bookshelf.

PS. In settings, I think "Hilight tap zone on tap" should be "Highlight tap zone on tap".

It should support all features described above. If not, it's a bug.
Could you send me example with wrong formatting?
Buggins - here's the link to a sample small e-book where bold, hr, center etc, css features don't appear to work (and they do on Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, and caliber e-book viewer): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13349902/Test-small.epub

Thanks for looking into this.

Cheers, Carl.

Wow... if I hadn't started to do almost all of my reading on my Kindle this looks like it would have replaced Aldiko, especially after the recent Aldiko update. Nice work!

I think coolreader needs a better way to set css override settings. Editing and putting epub.css file is understandable in eink readers but on android devices would it not be better if we can modify indent heading font size or style etc from inside coolreader.

I have just installed the latest version on my Chinese tablet. On first look I prefer it to Aldiko.

There is just one thing that I don't like. All my books are in ePub format and the thing I liked about Aldiko was the way that it respected Chapters and always started those on a new page. With CR3 it just dumps the chapter in the middle of a page. Is there anyway to sort this with CSS or is it more complex than that?

CoolReader also starts a new chapter on a new page, with the chapter title centered and bold, with the EPUBs that I have. So it is certainly no more complex than just having the correct formatting instructions in the CSS. I have page-break-before: always in my CSS for titles, so a page break always occurs just before a chapter title.

Code:
title, h1, h2 { text-align: center; text-indent: 0px; font-weight: bold; page-break-before: always; page-break-inside: avoid; page-break-after: avoid; }
Just in case it matters, I use my own EPUB.CSS located on the SD card in the \.cr3 folder.

Issue:

The Table of Contents works on some books and not others?

In one book, I got page 1 on the right hand side for each and every chapter. The TofC for this book works fine on Aldiko and Moon+ Reader.

Cheers

Thanks for that. I have just added it to my CSS without success so it looks like I will just have to live with it.

Are you sure that your chapter titles are actually labeled correctly as titles inside your EPUB file? If your EPUBs were created by Calibre they may actually have some Calibre specific labels that could be different. In that case, the CSS code that I posted would do nothing at all.

Dave_S, I think that must me the problem. Aldiko reads them perfectly but CR3 won't. I need to have a look and see if I can find out what Calibre calls the chapter tags

Buggins,

The formatting of the TXT files is very good. What specifically are you looking for to determine the chapter breaks, etc., and do you have anything in place to force a separate "title page" with the book name and author before the chapters begin?

I would like to know as I usually convert my various sources to TXT prior to reading and any tricks you may have in place for formatting would be good to know.

Thanks.

There are several TXT formatting styles recognized by Cool Reader.
A few examples:
1) Preformatted text. Paragraphs are delimited by empty line or by first line indent. Headings are centered.
2) One paragrph per line. Headings delimited with empty lines.
3) Paragraphs delimited by empty line. Headings delimited by doble empty lines.
