Viewing .mobi files on Android phone

I've got a few .mobi and .epub books that I would like to read on my Android phone. The .mobi files don't work with Kindle 4 Android.

Any recommendations for a app that will allow me to view them?

Why won't they work with the Kindle app?

The Kindle app only allows you to read books that are in your Amazon account. Documents you send via the Kindle e-mail address to your Kindle are not viewable via the Android app.

These are fanfics that I have downloaded and converted to .mobi and wish to read on my phone.

You can place them in the Kindle folder on your phone via USB or using Dropbox and a file manager app and the Kindle app should read them just fine.

AnemicOak: Thanks I didn't realise you could directly access the folder via USB.

AnemicOak and peegee: Thanks, I will play around with both and see which suits me.

Thanks guys, I tried both Kindle and Cool Reader and couldn't seem to get the files to appear (I'm not tech savy when it comes to smartphones), but I did get FB reader working, using dropbox to transfer the files.

All sorted, thanks again everyone!

Glad you got something working. Haven't ever used Cool Reader, but I have read many non-Amazon mobi files with the Kindle app, simply by placing them in the /Kindle folder on my Android device's SD card. They then appear upon the next startup of the app.
