Description

Freda+ is a 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. Freda+ is a paid-for app. If you don't want to pay, download the Freda app instead - it's the same as this one, except that it shows advertising at the bottom of the main screen. The manual is at http://www.turnipsoft.co.uk/freda .

Great ePub reader

There's not a whole lot you can say about an ebook reader, it works or it doesn't. This one works very well. It correctly flows text when resizing windows, and the theming to tune the display window to your preferences works well. I went for the plus version to get rid of the ads, and do not regret the minor expense.

No more converting!

Used to convert all epub books to pdf, but this reader makes that pointless. The fact it reads a the whole directory and displays name and cover is the feature I appreciate the most.
