Reading in your format

The PocketBook Reader reading app allows you to read comfortably, ad-free and absolutely free of charge on iOS devices, not only online but also without connecting to the Internet. The app supports all popular e-book formats, such as PDF (Adobe DRM), EPUB (Adobe DRM), DjVu, FB2,, MOBI, DOCX, RTF, TXT, CHM, HTML (basic), CBZ, CBR, CBT.

Audiobooks and Text-to-Speech

For readers who not only like to read ebooks, but also like to listen, the app supports audiobooks in all formats (mp3 and m4b). It also has a Text-to-Speech function. The sleep timer will turn off the audiobook automatically – so it will save the battery life of your smartphone. You can also take notes in chapters and change the speed of listening.

Virtual library in your pocket

The PocketBook Reader app is your personal virtual library in which you can read ebooks with many additional features. The reading app provides access to network directories (OPDS) and supports Adobe DRM. The ability to open a packed book saves your time. The reading app also offers a convenient search in books.

Maximum comfort of reading

The free PocketBook Cloud service syncs personal ebook libraries and reading settings between mobile devices, as well as E Ink ereaders online. Get the free storage for ebooks for comfortable reading in any format. Start reading an ebook on your smartphone and continue reading on the ereader at the same reading position. To log into the PocketBook Cloud, it is sufficient to use the login data (email address and password) of the account of your bookstore. If you’ve purchased ebooks on Google Books, you can sync them to your library by just one click. The integrated Dropbox service syncs your collected ebooks and provides a quick access to your files.

Database of personal knowledge

The PocketBook Reader app helps to write down and remember the most important you take out of a book. Highlight directly in the text, write comments and take notes with your fingers! Mark pages using bookmarks! Export notes to a separate file and send them by e-mail. The navigation inside the book is easy, the access to content and notes straightforward. Those who read large PDF or DJVU files will appreciate the cropping function. The PDF reflow feature allows you to easily reformat the text for display on small screens.

Assign, choose & personalize

Take advantage of the versatility of the reading settings of your reading app - change font size, text and background colour, customize the width of fields and much more. For most of the book formats, four basic colour themes are preset: night, day, user and newspaper. Also, the app has three reading modes: one page, two pages and scrolling. The pages can be scrolled by touching or gestures. Even automatic scrolling can be set.

Simple and excellent

I have used many epub readers. They are either far too complex and convoluted (MoonReader), or lacking essential tools such as highlighting or bookmarking. PocketBook Reader has all the essential features but not so many as to be confusing and make it difficult to use. It is the only epub reader I have felt deserving of use. Biggest problem: I can find no way to easily locate a set bookmark if losing track of where it is. Flipping through Page after page trying to find a lost bookmark is not time conservative or user friendly. Would like to see this fixed... or a more obvious way to do so if such feature already exists.

Developer Response ,

To set simple bookmark just tap on top right corner of screen while reading a book.
To highlight text you need to select it by long tap and choose one of four colors (You can scroll longtap menu)
If you want to see list of bookmarks or highlights, tap on screen center and tap on menu button on top right corner or tap on book title or swipe left. Then choose appropriate topic using segmented control (Contents - Bookmarks - Notes & Highlights - Book Info)
Have a pleasure reding!

Recent update broke sharesheet functions

The problem is not with sharing from other apps to Pocketbook. The problem occurs when I try to share a book from inside of Pocketbook to other apps like Files or iBooks or Send to Kindle. If you swipe left on a downloaded book inside Pocketbook app and try to use the sharesheet for sending the book to Files or Kindle or iBooks it doesn’t work.

Update Answer: No it doesn’t work. After clicking more, try tapping one of these- Files, Send to Kindle or iBooks. Nothing happens. It used to work fine before the recent update.

I like this app. The most recent update broke the sharesheet functionality. To reproduce, swipe left on the list of downloaded books, tap share button, tap open in, try to use files, kindle or iBooks. Nothing works. Please fix this. I am on iPhone 6.

From which app you try to open in PocketBook Reader? Safari, Files, Dropbox, something else?

Was great, but now isn’t working

I used to love reading my books off of this app, which was a lot because I’m an absolute book nerd. However, I noticed that after a recent update that it doesn’t open up my ebooks properly anymore. I was in the middle of an ebook, but after the update it fails to load. Instead it just shows a white screen with a little green book that just keeps turning pages over and over again. I’ve waited for long periods of time while on that screen to see if there was just difficulty loading the ebook, but that isn’t the case. Please please please tell me how to fix this if it’s a problem on my end!!! I’ve used this app for ages on all sorts of devices and I’ve never had a problem with it before now.
