The matter with Samsung Epic 4G (aka Galaxy S) is that you can't plug it always as a USB device, because if you want to update with the official updates you need Samsung Kies which has a unique interface for connecting, which is incompatible with the USB mode.

I installed Kies once on my PC tried it and then uninstalled it the same day.
If I wanted to put such bloated crap on my pc would have bought an IPhone.
Have not needed it since use ODIN and Xda forums for updates and
Winamp for transferring media to my device great thing with ia its wireless sync don't even need to connect my phone to the pc to add the new albums etc.

I added a few, newer readers to the first post and updated the popularity ranking in from the market. No real major changes, but a few new goodies. Thanks to everyone for reading!

Thanks!

Hi:

Excellent, comprehensive, review. Which one of the clients reads "plucker desktop" or "sunrisexp" output, that is, pdb, but I am not sure what sub-version. I've seen that many of the apps listed read pdb. I used to read that files with vademecum. Really handy, wikipedia's Solar System article fits on a 50 MB file, with images, one level of recursion. I would like to read that kind of books with my smartq V7 (I Ching coined :-) ).

Regards.

I know plucker is a venerable format from the days when Palm was king. Just from my quick research, it seems to have gone the way of the dodo, as the world moved on to more open standards. IMHO, it's a good move since standards and open formats ensure availability of content as things progress. I loved iSilo, for example, but it's damned near impossible to convert these days.

As of right now, I think FBreader claims to read plucker files, though I have no way of testing it. You could also try "Golan." It's not in the Android Market, but the developer has a page on Google code. It hasn't seen any updates in quite a while, however. Sunrisexp has been EOL'd as well.

The Desktop FBReader handles plucker files, but I don't think FBReaderJ does. The latter supports ebook formats with strong metadata support: ePub, FB2, and MOBI.

The entry for Compact Reader needs to be changed. It only supports "TXT" files.

I think the Moon+ Reader section needs to be updated. It supports more formats than that (txt/html/epub/umd/fb2/zip/OPDS), and it has note-taking and highlighting features, along with online (Google, Wikipedia) and offline (ColorDict, Fora) dictionary support. It also has auto-scroll and online translation (again, Google).

YES!!!

FBreader reads plucker pdb files! Just tested few minutes ago in a linux box, later I'll try later with FBreaderJ in Android and with the suplied Linux FBreader in Linux, both run on SmartqV7

Thankyou very much!

Thanks for the update. I have to confess I originally compiled this list a year ago when I was waiting for my nook to be delivered after I sold my Sony PRS-500. Updates to individual apps happen rapidly and, as a casual reader on Android these days, I just can't keep up with every one.

Periodically, I'll check androidzoom.com and see if any new apps have been added and will re-adjust the list to show changes in popularity. The rest, thankfully, is up to posts such as yours. Thanks!

Again, previous posters where right (thanks) FBreaderJ does NOT read pdb plucker files.

Updated Aldiko to reflect support for Adobe DRM.

Sorry about FBreader. I was going on what their website said and wasn't aware the mobile app doesn't support Plucker. See if Golan works for you. I know it's capable of doing the "plucking" so it should work as a reader as well. The only problem is it hasn't seen an update in a few years and may not work on newer versions of Android.
