FBReader is an e-book reader app
It supports epub, oeb and fb2(.zip) file formats. If that formats is what you read most, this is a good choice. Simple but sober interface, available in 11 languages. Open books from your sdcard or internal memory. It also includes a browser/downloader that is a book catalogs. Once you've downloaded them, you can sort and search them by autor, title, tag or recent. It's integrated with external dictionaries: supports ColorDict, Fora Dictionary and FreeDictionary.org.
There are also some settings to customize at you liking the way the text is displayed. It's a pity that it doesn't support more text formats, specially .pdf that's probably the most used. Anyway, the app that has developed Geometer plus, deserves to be taken in account if for the given formats. Recommendable app.

The customization and features are great. Best reading app I have found so far
Good. Very friendly interface
For some reason, I am not able to turn my brightness down when reading. My brightness is at about half before I open the app, but once I do it goes to full, and I scroll down the status bar and am not able to change it. Please fix?
love this app so much
I found this after my nook app was painfully slow with some ebooks, taking up to a minute to navigate. This app navigates it instantly.
We are the world.
