MoonReader replacement

Have used MoonReader Pro for many years but MoonReader does not have these two functions:


1. Ability to go to a certain page within a chapter
2. Ability to pin books


The reason for wanting to go to a certain page is to skip pages when reading a non-fiction book. Some pages are irrelevant and can be skipped. This is reading from a phone and a chapter can be 300 to 500 pages long. It is troublesome/painful to scroll page by page in a 300 page long chapter and thus the need to skip 20 or 30 pages in the chapter.

Some will say use the "favorites" or "collections" function. They appear to be old style of doing things. The modern way of doing this is to pin the book to the top, just like how you would pin a tweet in twitter, pin a message in email, pin a message in text messaging and so forth. The pin become a necessity in a folder that has 50 or 100 books. A book is pinned when it is being read/used, once finished, it will be unpinned.

Is there a epub reader for Android that has a "Goto Page" and "Pin Book" function?

Try librera. A lot of customizations as to what you see. I just added some books as favourites and then made sure to display the Favourites tab. I also rearranged the tabs to place Favourites next to Library.

I've tried Librera at one point and don't think I want to spend money on a reader that does not fully replace MoonReader (paying for premium features/ad-free) So far I think there is no Android e-reader that is capable of pinning books to the top of the library folder.

I found two e-reader that can "Goto Page". One of which is Classic eReader, I can't remember the other one. It has a rather clumsy implementation of the "Goto Page" function as it needs to scan/read the entire book first before the first page is shown (there was a progress bar in opening the book, it took 5 to 10 seconds to open the book).

I've tried/seen the following e-readers. Not interested in bookstore readers like Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc.

- Classic eReader: Has "Goto Page", insufficient bookshelf management (such as cannot add just a single book from a folder of multiple books, can/cannot remove book from bookshelf without physically deleting book, etc)

- Lithium

- ReadEra

- PocketBook

- FBReader

- Cool Reader

- Librera

MoonReader latest update has the "pin" function. This will be very useful and glad they did update the reader to include the popular "pin" function.
