I resumed my search for a mobile ebook reader – for the times when I forget my Sony reader – and amazingly came across Freda!
Here’s the link to the app: http://www.jim-chapman.net/freda/
I’d recommend the dropbox download. It was faster and prompt. RapidShare took 50 seconds to tell me that the link had expired! Annoying.
After installing it on my wm6 device, I had an error message: .NET version expected is newer than the one you have installed. So, I binged it and found two options. To get the latest I downloaded the .net compact framework version 3.5 – you can download it here.
Why Freda? I use Calibre to manage my ebooks. I used Mobipocket previously, but the epub format seems to be more of a standard and Mobipocket only imports then. Add to that the fact that I have a Sony Reader which supports epub – I moved! And Freda supports epub. I’ve still to check if Calibre allows direct exports to Freda on my mobile. If not, then it’ll be copy & paste. 😦 Mobipocket would do a direct transfer… all the pros & cons. I’m sticking with ePub until something better comes along.
