The only things I like about the Kobo H2O:
1) Size
2) Screen quality (though I hardly ever use front light)
3) Being able to import the annotations via Calibre to text files.

I have now Bluefire, Aldiko and Coolreader. I'll get KOReader. I did have Kindle App and removed it. I'd not install it on anything, nor register any device or App with Adobe for DRM. I doubt I'd ever install any Kobo SW on anything, though I use Viber (same parent company), mainly because Skype is now useless on desktop and QQ is only Chinese on Linux. I use Viber mainly for text, as I did for years with Skype.

Why would I buy Moon+ pro? The Basic Moon+ wasn't of interest.

Why would I spend ANYTHING on an ereader for Android when I have ereader apps that are free and 99% + of the time I read on one of my eink dedicated ereaders? It's mostly for testing how my own titles would look to phone users. Avoiding sizes, formats, image sizes, etc that won't work well.

My only issue was the problem of having to manually delete older versions of books and import newer versions of the same books. Cool Reader may have solved that.

Though actual library management is practically non-existent on ANY ebook App or physical ereader. I was using better document management and library programs 20 years ago.

A lot of these ereader Apps concentrate too much on eye-candy and unimportant features with also poor GUIs and lack of library management.

You can do the google survey to get money for apps as well.

I found all them lacking except moon reader. I don't remember the free version honestly, I got it free maybe during a promo. KOreader is slow, it acts like it's ebook reader counterpart even on good hardware.

Can this help? https://www.slant.co/versus/5405/791..._vs_kobo-books

"The most important reason people chose Moon+ Reader is:

They have built in net library to search free eBooks."

That is absolutely ZERO interest, as I'd search for specific old books and often export as RTF and reformat if Calibre isn't sufficient.
I read almost all ebooks on the Kobo H2O original, or the Sony PRS350 if out and about or travelling.
I'm only using phone to check the books I actually author. Some might have 15 to 35 revisions, hence the interest in purely managing via Calibre on the desktop, and hating having to find and delete the titles on the phone and "import" to the reader.
Cool Reader seems to work without having to delete or import.

And, no I'm NEVER doing surveys for anyone, especially not Google.

Moon+ may not be for you and your use case, but your above assumption seems wrong. I've used it for years and have never once used that feature. I use it on Android tablets, phones and e-ink ereaders. I choose it because it is customizable so I can view my book the way my old eyes prefer. Obviously this doesn't help you at all with what you are trying to accomplish.

Let us know what ends up suiting your use case, I'm sure other publishers would find that information of value.

I'm trying PocketBook now, mentioned here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...0&postcount=99

It DOES use a named directory accessible to Calibre.
I was trying Coolreader, but while it works to use a shared directory via USB, it's otherwise annoying.

Can the turning page annotation be turned off in PocketBook? Also where does it save the annotations?

i agree completely ( except that I don't have it on anything of e-ink - was not aware of that option )
I worked through pretty much every paid (and thus advert free) e-reader in the google store. MOon is #1 for me

but i use it purely as a reader , not a library. I don't use its shelves, or auto import, or find free stuff online features

Some eInk devices run the android OS. On these devices it works great.

Same here, I use none of those features. I use Calibre Companion to manage my on device books and Moon+ Pro as the reader.

Yes, the animation can be changed or off. The GUI for all the settings is a bit weird, otherwise Pocketbook looks good for LCD based Android phones & Tablets.
I'm not particularly interested in customising / patching / alternate readers for my eink dedicated ereaders.
