Damn your dead-tree-based products, we want to read books from vastly complicated electrical devices!
by on August 14, 2010
An ebook reader is a real no brainer for a portable device. It’s surprising an innovative company wouldn’t include one as standard, attached perhaps to some type of online store.
We’re sure some plucky up and coming company will eventually do it. In the meantime we have bookworm a genuinely usable ebook reader for the Windows Mobile platform.
It does the basics almost flawlessly: lets you browse forwards and backwards with a finger flick, offers full-screen reading, offers a customisable text display and an easy to use download library.
Most importantly it makes reading on your device a pleasure. The download library is easy to use and links in to Gutenberg for free classics, though nothing else.
Despite this there are a couple of flaws. To start there doesn’t seem to be any contents options, though these are usually built-in to Gutenberg books.
The page slider is relatively useless as it’s not accompanied by a page number display, nor is it possible to jump to a specific page. But really these are minor and we’d hope to see them corrected in a future release.
