navigation button upside down

-Make it possible to switch the Up and the Down part of the Navigation key

My thumb is always on the navigation key when I am reading and it is a lot easier to push Up than Down so it should be able to couple the Up with the Next page action.
Try it some time for yourself... see what you would like.

Try 'right' and 'left' for navigation. That works great for me

Left and right is better for page navigation; if you have a page containing hyperlinks, up/down moves you through the hyperlinks on the page.

Maybe they'll actually manage to fix the bugs AND add features, all in one firmware update !

Ive tried left and right, and I don't find them as easy as pushing Up.
Especially so when it is in the leather cover.

Speaking of the non book files that are automatically created by the Cybook when you read, it would be nice if they were automatically deleted also when you delete a book! Maybe in the next firmware release?

I wonder also about translating the interface in other languages, besides the French and English available now. It would be a nice bonus for buyers in other european countries to be able to use the Cybook Gen3 in their own language, and as Europe seems to be Bookeen's main market...

1. Better support of Unicode
2. Like Hanlin V.3, support chm, djvu
3. Fix the display optimal bug
4. SDK for us to develop better software for the unit like the Sony PRS-500, Illiad, or V3
5. Open source police is the success of Linux. All these ebook or GPX2 just say they use linux, but their source code always hidden or extremely hard to read. They are the one get the fruit juice from the open source campus but feedback none. Even worse than M$ windoz. Since M$ Windoz just keep their source code and develop their own. They don't get the code from open source. So they don't have responsability to open their code. But these linux units never try to open their source. What the hell !

The things I would like to see on the reader are these:

1) Folders!
2) More options for Sorting books, at the very least By Author and By Genre
3) The ability to search for a book by name or author, including partial names
4) The ability to resume to the book you were reading when you turn the device back on.
5) Mapable +/- keys when not playing music. Or at least make them a Page Up and Page Down key. Useful both for reading and for browsing through the library.
6) The ability to read in landscape mode. It occurs to me that with the black case the way it is, it might make a good stand on a table.

Text highlighting. (If it's possible to select words for a dictionary search, it wouldn't be hard to create a tool to actually highlight the text and save it that way).

What I's really wantses...

A folders system which really *WORKS*! I've got the older Sony PRS500 as well as the Cybook and I wasn't impressed with the 'collections' thing all that much on the PRS500 because it didn't really put the ebooks in a folder it just put their titles in a collection list. How difficult to remember!

A real folder navigation system would mean I could put all my thrillers into a Thrillers folder and see the Thrillers folder in the main Library screen. When I click on it, it would then refresh the Library screen to show only those subfolders and titles in there. If I had a subfolder labeled Romance Thrillers, I wouldn't see any of the titles contained therein until I selected that folder and clicked to open. It's a simple concept and the basic concept has been used since the days of CP/M.

We *NEED* this because when we put in our SD cards stuffed with several hundred ebooks, the search process to find an ebook title halfway through the list can be quite frustrating.

Then, I'd like to see either a By Authors title listing which breaks it down by Authors | Authors A, B, C, etc. | Authors A - Adams, Alt, Anderson, etc... | Authors A/Alt, Madelyn/A Charmed Death, Hex Marks the Spot, The Trouble with Magic... Of course, each selection point would open up a new Library display as one drilled down...

Of course, adding support for Amazon Kindle .azw files would be a big plus.

It would be great if someone from Bookeen actually read these forums!! .. time will tell!

I basically love the Cybook but a few 'tweaks' would be awesome:

1) As others have said an 'author' sort of some kind is a must

2) The option to change the buttons usage .. especially the volume ones as I have no intention of ever playing music on it!

3) It may sound weird to some but I would really like page numbers! .. when I read a book if there are page numbers I have a rough idea of where I am should the kids come along and change it all for me! .. but with a 'progress bar' I don't stand a chance! .. When I sold my iRex I was part-way thru one of my e-books and trying to find where that was via the progress bar was an absolute nightmare!!

4) Again, as others have said, the ability to switch on and arrive where you left off ..

5) The 'delete' option to be working


Hmm it looks a bit like a 'list' now but basically even if nothing changed I'd still like it and still choose it over the other readers ..

You've all covered my list nicely. So I'll add one more item...

An SDK! Then we can help pitch in and extend it's capabilities instead of whining.
