Most feature packed reading software

One side effect of the epub extension discussion was that I took another look at all the things I can do with Mobipocket ebook. The following is a list of commands that you can write into an ebook:

* open
* close
* alert
* flash_message
* increase_font
* decrease_font
* browse
* display_tip
* play_music
* play_music_ex
* start_recorder
* start_popup_viewer
* start_external_app
* index_search
* filtered_index_search
* cond_index_search
* sql_search
* sql_bullet_search
* move_table
* display_bookmark_tip
* dial
* book_details
* category_details
* create_category
* back
* forward
* display_list
* activate
* add
* goto
* next
* previous
* details
* edit
* delete
* goto_page
* goto_page_relative
* goto_first_page
* goto_last_page
* goto_toc
* goto_guide
* search
* copy
* highlight
* annotate
* lookup

And this is all stuff I can do with MobiReader 4.8 (WinCE version), which came out 6 years ago. My current favorite ability is the open command. It turns out that I can have 2 Mobi ebooks open at one time on my Airpanel (one full screen and one in a window). It's not a big deal, but it is rather neat.

Is there any reading software that can match it?

a new trick

Did you know that the WinCE version of MobiReader has a hidden 2 column mode? As far as I can tell, it's only available to a particular screen geometry, 640x240. This morning I used that second window trick to open a new window with the right shape. Opening the Settings menu in this window gave me access to the multicolumn mode, which I now have running on the full screen as well. Sweet.

P.S. In case anyone is interested, the attached files will help you do it.
