Freda is a free program for reading electronic books (ebooks) on Windows. It reads EPUB (DRM-free), FB2, HTML and TXT format books. The program offers customisable controls, fonts and colours, plus annotations and bookmarks, and the ability to look up dictionary definitions and translations, and (new feature) text-to-speech reading. Freda understands EPUB formatting information (bold/italic text, margins and alignment) and can display images and diagrams in books. Freda can get books from on-line catalogs like Feedbooks, Smashwords and the Gutenberg Project. Or if you have an existing book collection, you can use OneDrive, DropBox or Calibre to share it with your phone. Freda can also download books from any website and from email attachments. You can download books and keep them on your phone, so you can carry on reading when you don't have network connectivity, and you can pin your favourite books to the Start page. The manual is at http://www.turnipsoft.co.uk/freda .More

When I first downloaded this app....
When I first downloaded this app, I was so pleased with the interface and how you only saw a big long list of your books in your bookshelf and how you could select multiple files to bring into your library. Now the interface is not only touchy and doesn't want to load your uploaded books but is unresponsive at times. The bookshelf is now very cluttered looking and it's overall a sloppy and unenjoyable experience. I'm not sure if it was an update that ruined these great features which once made freda a five-star app, but it's disappointing to say the least.More
No iBooks, but close enough
I like that I can highlight, bookmark, open links without jumping page, and that I can change many settings. I don't like that I can't create categories, take notes, and some of the customer colors don't show.More
Best of the bad
The only reader not polished enough to allow me to set font size 40. In combination with windows setting 175% it gives me the letters of the size that I want.More
Does the JOB. :)
Easy to use & it works :) WIN.More
So easy to use, great app!More
You have to feel your way around the navigation at first, since it's a tad under-notated, but once you do, it's a pretty terrific eReader....More
