EPUB Reader updated for Windows Phone 8

Published by at

Developer Jan Reidemeister has updated EPUB Reader, a Windows Phone client for ebooks in the older format. With the rise of the Kindle, .mobi is used by many authors, but there's still a lot of love for the Epub format. Which is where this reader comes in useful.

With the caveat that the app will only read unencrypted files, EPUB Reader comes with a lot of options to set the colour, fonts, and layouts of the texts to make the reading experience suit your own tastes.

Of course any Windows Phone application that uses external files is going to have a few issues in getting the file onto the handset. EPUB Reader allows you to do the 'sideloading' by pointing to a file in the web browser or reading an email attachment, much like how the Adobe PDF reader works.

Alternatively you can import your files from the SD card if you have one in your Windows Phone 8 handset.
