BookZ for iPad: eBook Reader with Dictionaries

For those who needs to look up alien words when reading, there's a new eBook reader app that allows adding additional dictionaries
It's called BookZ HD. BookZ was one of the oldest ereader available on the iPhone--it is now available for the iPad.

The app offers a reading experience similar to iBooks. It loads txt files and allows adding additional Stardict dictionaries.

Recommended for those who read foreign literature

That's cool. Thanks. I'll keep this in mind if someone ever asks the question. I always get the obscure tech questions. LOL...

Blio is another that has built in dictionary support - it's not as feature-packed/configurable as others, but I'm finding that for me, at least, it's a decent Stanza replacement.

The screen shots of BookZ HD look awful. Can it actually do real formatting? Optimized for text files? Sorry, but this eBook reader is not going to cut it.
