    "Once upon a time"

    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

    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.

    It does nothing! This program has no functionality, all it does is tell you that "function X is only available in the premium version". This includes the bookshelf and opening the book files (!!!). If this crippleware is supposed to convince me of how great the full version is, well it failed spectacularly!

    I had to download many other apps from within this app inorder to support the basic feature of having a dictionary embedded into the PDF reader. Wasn't worth for me. Uninstalled the app.

    The most appreciated feature of this app is that we can go to dictionary while reading without intervention.
