For some reason, the progress bar on my FBReader's reading screen has a black box at a point well forward of where I am in the book, and after 2 pages of a 128-page book, it claims 63% progress. Huh?
Welcome news for those of us who like Fbreader: it can now sync your reading position via Google Drive and a new service called "Fbreader Book Network". This is now built into Fbreader, not a separate app like FBSync. See
Google Play here and Fbreader Book Network here.
I like the sync because it is automatic (as long as you have data or wifi connected).
FBReader is an e-book reader. It currently works on the Sharp Zaurus, Siemens Simpad with Opensimpad ROM, Nokia Internet Tablet (Maemo platform), Archos PMA430, Motorola E680i/A780/A1200 smartphones, PepperPad 3, Asus Eee PC, IRex iLiad, UMPC, and desktop computers running Linux, Windows XP/Vista, or FreeBSD.
I am trying to build a FBReader project http://fbreader.org/FBReaderJ, which has native code dependencies. With latest ADT and Android Studio v. 0.5.4 I am able to import eclipse project also with NDK.
I have both 10.10 on a CD, and the latest version downloaded today. Because this isn't a terribly important thing - and largely experimental - I figured I'd try the 10.10 disc first. At best, it gets to the progress 'dot' bar, and just...keeps...'progress'ing...but not really. Most times, it'll stop and just hang there.
The concept of reading literature -- except for technical documentation -- on a computer screen has come a long way in the last few years. No doubt the growing popularity of EBRs, or electronic-book readers such as the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook are having a big impact on our reading habits.
