Great and easy to use

Reviewer 6835 · 7/10/2015
For my needs, one of the best book readers

It is easily between iBooks and Freda as the two best book readers out there. I knock iBooks due to its inability to natively interface with anything other than the iBooks store (yeah, you can side load books, but it is a PITA). Freda, well , it is only available on Windows. Were it available on iOS, there would be no question as to which book reader I would be using all of the time.

Can't connect to Caliber

I’m trying to connect to Calibre via the content server (wi-fi server is on too) and Freda tells me to go to the books sources screen, tap on the calibre catalog, then select the ‘login option’. There is no ‘longin option’ I tried to add books from a folder on my device and when I try and open them it says; Download failed.

Works perfectly. Have uses it nine months without any problems. I love that it's so easy to adjust screen, type face, and touch/swipe options, and to search text.

Found the controls for text size. Much better

I have vision problems. I need to be able to resize the text and graphics. (Fixed) Also how do I remove the book icons that come with it. I only want what I personally download and use with it.
