Ratings and Reviews
Having a large collection of plain text ebooks, I needed a reader that would render them comfortably readable. This is definitely that app! It typesets the pages beautifully and automatically keeps your reading position on the fly. The app offers lots of display choices, and importing books is a snap.
If you are looking to read plain text files on your iOS device, this is the app you want!
It only reads English txt. I tried open Korean txt file. But, there’s no tap for encoding.
