Awesome! First I had downloaded moon reader for an epub file and it wouldn't read it and this one read it without a problem. Thanks! :D

Good app Thus has been a very good app through and through. Always works correctly. My only issue is as of late it forgets the page I left off at. Used to be fine.

Crap Updated verson is crap. Could not run.

by A Google User the 2/18/2013

Customisable and supports most formats Far superior to my phone's pre-loaded reader app. Almost endlessly customisable (font, font size, background colour, brightness etc). I use this every day. Seems to read anything I throw at it, unlike the other app.

Unstable Crashes constantly on HTC One X with Android 4.1.1. Great app otherwise.
