Hyphen is a powerful, easy-to-use ePub reader designed from the ground up with you in mind, with cross-device syncing, super-fast rendering, effortless customization, and intuitive annotation features.
■ CROSS-DEVICE SYNCING
Start on one device, finish on another. Your entire library - books, annotations, bookmarks, and all - is synced between devices via iCloud.
■ PERSONALIZE YOUR READING EXPERIENCE
Hyphen comes packed with a ton of options for custom colors, fonts, font sizes, line heights, paragraph indentations, margins - ...well, you get the idea. You can even use styling on a per-book basis.
And if that’s not enough, you can also add your own CSS. Cool, right?
■ HIGHLIGHT AND ANNOTATE EFFORTLESSLY
Tap-and-drag or use the selection handles to highlight in any one of several available colors. Write notes for a highlight and refer to them any time you need to. You can also share highlights as images and post them to Twitter or Facebook, or export all your highlights for use elsewhere.
■ GOODREADS INTEGRATION
Use Goodreads? We've got you covered - shelve books, make status updates and post quotes, all right from the app.
■ ADD BOOKS WITH EASE
Add ePubs using your favorite cloud services - Dropbox, Google Drive, OPDS servers, and more. You can also use the in-app web browser to download ePubs, or add them using iTunes.
OTHER NOTABLE FEATURES:
■ NIGHT MODE
Transition Hyphen's reading interface to soothing, darker colors at night.
Edit the title, author, subjects, covers and more of your books. Hyphen can even lookup book covers and metadata for you.
■ SHELVE & SORT
Add books to custom shelves, and sort by author, title, last read, or date added.
■ CUSTOM CSS & FONTS
Hyphen lets you import both your favorite fonts for use while reading, as well as CSS.
■ DEFINE & TRANSLATE
Translations of the text you're reading are only a tap away. Lookup words and terms in Wikipedia, Dictionary.com or Google.
■ TWO COLUMN SUPPORT
Got one of those large, spacious, king-sized, oh-my-lord-this-screen-is-so-big-I-should've-gotten-an-ipad-mini-instead,-its-so-big, why-is-it-so-big-sized screens? Use this setting to make reading more comfortable. You can also optionally only use two columns when your device is in landscape orientation.
Add words to a vocabulary list and export them easily.
Tap and hold a link to open it in the in-app browser, or Safari. Images zoom in, letting you see every detail. Swipe through and jump between images throughout the text with the Image Viewer.
■ ADE PAGES SUPPORT
Hyphen utilizes ADE pages, so you’ll always have a cross-reader compatible way of finding and noting where you are in a book.
■ INCREDIBLY FAST
Download and import books in the blink of an eye. Hyphen’s ePub Rendering System is optimized so that there’s the least delay between you and the text.

Ratings and Reviews
Very good reader, would like more export functions
This is a good ePub reader, with plenty of ways of getting ebooks onto your device and with some very extensive customisation capabilities, which means you can make your ePub look nothing like what the publisher intended!
I tend to use ePub readers as a way of making notes on a text, and hyphen does allow that in a limited way - you can export highlights,but only as an HTML document. I'd like to see this extended to allow for highlights on a per book/section basis and exporting in different formats. This is a special use case for me, so I don't think it's fair to dock a star for what is a very good ePub reader app!
Finally a good Readmill replacement
Since Dropbox killed off Readmill I've been looking for a good ePub reader replacement, specifically one that offers very comprehensive text formatting options. I work with typography via CSS and know how important it is to get this right. Marvin and Gerty are pretty good but don't offer all the formatting options I need. Hyphen is even better and I'm very happy with it so far. You can even add your own CSS, something I've not tried yet, but will do at some point. Highly recommended, especially if you liked, and miss Readmill.
Heard of this app from Viticci of Macstories n wow this app blows my mind n blows every other ePub reader out of the water.
Very very customisable n will get better with time as the developer is also very opened to improvements.
I can't say enough about this app. Don't think, don't "trial", just buy the full version. Nuff said!
