Hmm. I'd love to try it out, but it doesn't show up in the Market on my T-mobile G1. T-mobile maybe filtering it out? Or does it take time to propagate through the system? Kind of frustrating.

Ah, Aldiko got back to me and it turns out you need to have the Cupcake update to see it in the Market, and I'm apparently last on T-Mobile's list.

I haven't been able to give the app a try yet - I've got a Magic with Cupcake on it - because the app won't show up in the market for me either.

But reading around a bit, apparently you can't load your own EPUB files into it. Which kinda of negates the point of the reader for me :-\

Anyway, I'll know for sure when I can see it, and download it ;-)

Well while on my G1 I went to Adlika went thru the process and they took my money, but then the page hopped to the "terms of use....," and I never saw or hit the "download" button. Anyway. How do you get the cupcake update? I took an update yesterday, but Adlika isn't among my Market app thingie.

I took an update yesterday that T-Mobile told me was coming this week. Don't know what it's "name" was, but I've scrolled and scrolled the Market this evening, and don't see Adlika there. I do see Adlika books to download.

Hey, I just want to let you guys know that we pushed an update for Aldiko this morning that will enable you to import EPUB files into your Aldiko bookshelf. You can also download EPUB books directly from the Browser. For more details, please visit our blog at http://www.aldiko.com/blog/

Update. I mentioned I'd downloaded "Adlika"...got it, their people are great to deal with and very responsive.

I like this little thing!! And I've downloaded 10 or so books so far. It would be nice if we could add some of our favorites to it.

epub downloads on Adlika

I took a recent update and can now take epubs from a folder on the pc and upload them to my G1 phone.

They don't load as quickly as those taken directly from the Adlika selection but I can get current novels "my choices". Could use some further tweaking as some books that are in the folder, "are not seen" or downloaded.

First off all I am really pleased with Aldiko reader..is one of the best I've seen.

But I still have a small observation , do you have an idea ?

Quote:
I am using aldiko to read eBooks(epub) on my Motorola Milestone and I have a question .Why do I have a white margin of 3-4 mm on the left and 3-4 mm on the right of the text even if I set the Layout->Left Margin to 0 ? As far as I have seen on the internet on other mobile devices the text can fill much better the useful white area of the screen.
Thank you in advance.
