Which eReader for mobi on Nexus 7

Got a 32GB Nexus 7 for Christmas

I have a Nook for epub eBooks, I'd like to have an eReader for mobi on the Nexus 7

Can't get the Kindle for Android app to register, tried umpteen times, is there a less troublesome eReader for Android that reads mobi files without having to convert them all to epub with Calibre ?

If they are DRM-free FBReader for Android advertizes "partial" support for MOBI, but in my experience it works ok.

IIRC Moon+ does a pretty decent job with Mobi files (the pro version is half off right now FWIW).

Thanks for the replies, I'll try FBReader and IIRC Moon+ (pro version while it's cheap)

The amazon kindle app on the nexus 7 does work well, but getting it working and registered is sorta convoluted.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...ocId=165849822

Get the app from amazon and install it, then go to manage my kindle and make sure the app is attached to your account in manage my android apps and devices.

I am missing something here but not sure what it is..
