Fbreader Now Syncs Reading Position

Welcome news for those of us who like Fbreader: it can now sync your reading position via Google Drive and a new service called "Fbreader Book Network". This is now built into Fbreader, not a separate app like FBSync. See
Google Play here
and Fbreader Book Network here.

I like the sync because it is automatic (as long as you have data or wifi connected). Moon+ lets you know that a new reading position is available and asks if you want to go to that position. Fbreader's new sync is more like Google Play's: automatic with no prompting.

Hi - Do you happen to know if there a way to get FBreader to 'see' books already in your Google Drive - without having to add them 20mb at a time through the FBreader Library file upload page?

I have many more than 20mb and it is a pain having to drag and drop with that limitation. Is there perhaps a tool that can work to look at the directory contents either in drive or offline first and create the necessary file/index that the library uses?

Thanks

I don't know how to make Fbreader see Google Drive books. I'm only using it to sync my reading position. That's the feature I was waiting for Fbreader to implement.

OK. I've got both devices connected to wifi, have my account set up on FB Reader Book Network, and have tried repeatedly to get it to sync page position with no effect. I'm going to say this isn't easy. Moon+ didn't require any fiddling; I have, however, found Moon+ to be unusable because of the page turning problems. So, FBReader would be perfect if I could sync page position between devices and Moon+ would be perfect if the pages would turn reliably. I've tried most every reader out there and can't find the flawless one.

Did you go into "Settings" then "Synchronisation" in FbReader on each device? You have to enable synchronisation there. I've also checked off "Change current book", so that if I am reading book "A" on one device and stop reading book "B" on the second device, when I go back to the first device it will automatically open book "B".
