InkPad 3 native reader.

Currently I have the Kindle Voyage and the Oasis 2 but I want a bigger screen plus the smart light and thinking of purchasing the InkPad 3, what's the native reader like compared to the Kindle?.

Hi !


It is very good, it also supports TTS in multiple languages, not just ENG as Oasis.
You also have the option to install SW like KOREADER on Inkpad and so on.
*Also the ePUB or CBR - CBZ format option


I think you will be satisfied overall ;-)

I have very good experince with default reader. Again, epub files are best for displaying and reading, and also well formated pdf files, scanned or not scanned, and using of margin cropping is awesome!

I'm curious what you compare with?

Coming from Kobo I found it buggy and inferior.

It doesn't show images if in certain sizes. (I spent hours on this and sent a very detailed report to Pocketbook support. No changes in the new firmware...)

Some books with "not perfect" code simply hangs. Suppose you can't complain when it can't handle erroneous code, but it should say something and not hang (and pretty much most other reading software can handle the examples I happened to have).

It doesn't support a bunch of stuff in the epub specification, and probably none of the 3.x stuff.

And other various things.


But for most epubs it's ok and the screen and lightning is great and all-in-all a great product I'm happy with when reading.

(But there is a reason why pretty much everyone on the russian and german forums install coolreader directly.)

You are right. I am relatively new to erader story. I do not have experience with many different epub formats. My usage of Pocketbook default reader is mainly scanned PDFs. Mozilla have online epub converter that translates complete web pages to epub format. But you are right, some of the pictures and page elements are not converted properly...
But is very convenient if you want some intresting online staff to view on Ebook reader...

As others have said the native reader is good. The physical user interface not so great; with the Voyage and Oasis you have buttons on the side(s). With the Pocketbook they are inconveniently located at the bottom. But if you prefer to tap or swipe the screen then that shouldn't be an issue.

The Kobo Forma has the best physical user interface of all in my opinion and a good built in reader. But you've probably seen the various complaints about uneven lighting so it's a crap shot if you order it online. Maybe get one from a local retailer (e.g., Walmart) so you can take it back if it's a dud?

If you like, please try this epub and see if all the images get shown. (If it does, please state what model and sw-version you have.)

Model PB740, software U740.5.20.1010.

For the second series of the rock in the sky/lake with text under it, the 1900x2026 did not display; I got a blank page. The first two of the vegetables did not display; blank page.

On the Kindle Oasis, 9th gen, previous firmware, all images displayed correctly. Although the azw3 file was "malformed" when I let Calibre convert the mobi to azw3 because the Kindle said it was the end of the book after the first creative self hypnosis cover. Then I used Amazon's kindlegen.exe and converted the epub into a dual mobi (it contains the obsolete old mobi files as well as the azw3 files) and then it displayed everything.

I should add that although the Pocketbook failed patrik's image test, for my reading it doesn't matter. All I read is fiction/novels. The only time they have images is sometimes a fantasy novel will have a map at the beginning or on the inside of the front and back covers, but I've never needed them.

While a completely reasonable standpoint of a particular end-user; looks like a whole PocketBook dev team shares it too :-(.

I cannot make a comparison to a Kindle, but I've had three other readers before the PB and this is my best so far.

Still, there's room for improvement. Like ePub3 support (at least the metadata), and extra-size pictures.
