1) Add "fit the content" to zoom options. Now there is only fit the width.

2) Cut margins for Djvu files

3) Let the browser remember user names and passwords

3) Show book titles in Chinese

I add my vote for all the features requested by JP36 - replace the white boot up screen with one of our own, preferably simply by uploading an image of pre-prepared dimensions into an appropriate folder on the IQ; monolingual dictionaries; reversing buttons for page turns; install applications to the internal card. Access to Android Market is not such an issue for me, but would be nice if possible.

With a little experience with my 903, here's my list of wanted features:

#1. Publish the SDK, so we can start improving things - because the current one doesn't work for this model.

#2. Zoom to pen marked region - it's simple, just wait for a stylus stroke and zoom in to the bounding box.

#3. Margin strip - the current zoom is often sufficient to remove left and right margins, but it always leaves the top margin, larger than before. I want to focus on the text, which instead gets pushed off the bottom edge for no reason. The scrolling buttons do not help because the vertical step is much larger than the horizontal.

#4. Note taking. Scribble is currently the closest in there, which is weird as the 15.1 SDK inkdemo demonstrates the note feature including adding and editing images. The 903 instead integrates the screenshots in contents and allows no editing, nearly useless.

#5. Publish the sources for the web browser - you appear to be in violation of the LGPL license it is under currently.

#6. Type-ahead with the buttons. Currently one has to wait for the display when moving through a list with the buttons; it should be possible to just tap for each row.

#7. Make the keyboard work without stylus as well, in case one doesn't want to use it, has only one hand available or loses the stylus. After all, the 902 must have a keyboard that works with buttons.

#8. Make the keyboard more responsive. It does not need to flash each virtual key when one taps many keys in sequence, the text itself is sufficient. Skip that animation when there are later taps in the queue.

#9. Stop popping up a "battery low, please charge" message when it is already charging. Better to make the battery indicator show a hint of current level while charging.

I might come up with more later.

Of course, the old promises such as text based notes for the 302 along with keyboard support must be fulfilled.
I'd like to vote for all of these. Thanks.

In the internet browser
1. I miss the function to increase the font size - it's too small for me.
2. The display should turn with rotation of the device (90 degrees).

It would be nice if 602 could have a "new words book/list" by providing an option to add selected words looked up while reading a book.

That would be nice on any reader! Do some actually provide it?

It sounds like a simple thing to accomplish for any reader with dictionary capabilities.

Sony PRS650 keeps a log of words one has looked up. There are people who hacked previous Sony models to add more languages and functions but over all, especially the new Sony models, Sony E-readers are pretty much limited to "as is".

So far I really like Pocketbook's customized dictionaries. I hope the next firmware will take our suggestions. There are couple of guys from the company on the-ebook.org. They are quick at taking feedback and explaining things.

+1
I was actually about to suggest this one myself. ^^
Also, +1 for supporting other file-systems on SD cards.

Here is a pdf related request:
- It would be nice if the reflow zoom factors were a bit more granular. The
text in some of my pdfs looks too small with the lowest 150% and too big
with the next step available (200%).

Here a sort of meta-suggestion:
- Wouldn't it be somewhat tidier to put up a bug tracker to manage all the
bug reports and the feature requests?

Thank you.


P.S.: I got a PB 602, 2.0.3 firmware.

I bought PocketBook 902 mainly because of its large screen to read mangas. But reading mangas on this device is the most frustrating experience. Reading manga is the same as moving through a bunch of jpg/png files in some folder. But it could be a lot of files (150-200) so it is not possible to read the whole manga at once. But when I hit "Back" button, PB returns me to the first file in the folder (actually, file which was opened first) - NOT the file I was currently looking at. If I turn the PB off and then on, it does not display the latest picture, but show me the folder of graphic files instead with cursor on first file. It just does not remember the latest displayed graphic file. I have to write down the file name and then locate it manually.

Also it does not show the battery meter when displaying a graphic file. It's frustrating as you never know if the battery's running out of juice. And you cannot just hit "Back"/"Home" button as you'll loose the page/file you're reading.

So, my request is to fix this issue.

Me too!! Please, add support for .cbz books.

It would be nice if PB could open two books at the same time and switch between them.

But honestly I doubt any of our wanted features will be developed. My best guess is they are always busy with the next models.

Something similar is already there. You can set shortcut for "Last open books" to a hardware button. When you push the button, the quick menu opens and you can quickly switch to another book.
