Lightbulb Likebook Mars - What are your favorite apps for this Reader?

I have recently gotten a Likebook Mars.
So far, I have replaced the launcher with Simple Ink Launcher 1.2 from here

I am using the following apps:
  • Moon Reader Pro as the main book reader.
  • Read for Android here
  • Firefox web browser 68 with addons:
    Font Contrast 1.5.3 , Theme Font & Size Changer 62.0 , and uBlock Origin 1.22.4
  • Overdrive
  • PressReader
  • Sudoku from fdroid here
  • Solitaire from fdroid here
  • Puzzles from fdroid here
  • Writer Plus 1.48 from apkmirror here
  • ES File Manager 4.0.4

Does Anyone have any other suggestions?
Also has anyone changed the screensaver? I think it is just a matter of replacing /system/media/standby.png with a compatible 1404x1872 png file?
If anyone has done this, would you share your images?

Thanks

Never heard of that launcher before that's cool.

I would swap to solid explorer or similar (I use root explorer) as ES does some shady stuff with their data collection. But if you almost never use wifi it's prob fine.

For the screensaver I just modified the stock boat one to say if found call this number #. Here is the logo I cutout if you want to stick it in one you make though. Just make sure its the same color palette as the stock photo.

Thank you for this very useful list!

Now my innocent question, I've got the Mars for a week noew and don't quite understand why ppl use alternative reading apps. The standard one seems to be quite excellent? I have tried Moon Reader and it seems to be slow and not really optimized for E-Ink.

The stock reader is fine if it's what you're looking for, I personally read inverted as it's better for my vision and I can mix the glow lights on Moonplus as seen here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=314547 . I also have turned off all animations in the app as well as changing settings in the app optimization menu in the Boyue Launcher. I use regal refresh on and the frame rate lower too Ill attach a pic showing my settings. I also lower the dpi to make the app have a smaller UI as the items on screen are a waste of some of the space some times. Basically I made it look exactly like it is on my phone.
