E-book reader for Sailfish OS.

The core functionality is based on FBReader source code with a few modifications. In theory, it should be able to handle all E-book formats supported by FBReader. Books are imported from the ~/Downloads folder, where they are saved by the browser or email client. Alternatively, you can manually copy your books to the ~/Documents/Books directory. Removable storage (SD-card) is supported as well. Switch between SD-card and internal memory by flicking left and right. Use volume keys, swipe or touch to turn the pages.

This is pretty much a copy of the Jolla Store version, except that settings are moved from the app's pulley menu to the Settings → Applications grid.

When/if I have time, although I have to admit these are not high on my priority list. I would probably do fb3 first.

Using it from Jolla Store since first release, amazing to know it's here now too! The best SFOS E-reader.
