FBReader 2.7 for Android

August 30, 2016

This release was planned as a bugfix for Android 6 issues: sd card access, and migration to new folder names. In order to fix the issues, we made a significant internal change. Some small annoying issues (e.g., book progress displaying in the bookshelf) are fixed.

FBReader is now available from our site and will be rolled out to the Play Store in a few hours. FBReader Premium 2.7 will be released later this week.

  • A book can be linked to multiple files
  • File change notification
  • Fixed reading progress issue
  • Easy access to books on sd card (in classic library view, bookshelf plugin will be updated next week)
  • Android 6: FBReader opens ePub/PDF files from external applications (not fb2 yet)
  • “Tweet what you have read” link at end of book
  • Fixed large table of contents support
  • Misc fixes in ePub, MS Doc, RTF support

Our plans: status update

July 09, 2016

FBReader for Android 2.7 (both free and Premium) will be released by end of July 2016. This version will fix a number of annoying issues related to migration to Android 6:

  • “Lost” bookmarks for books on SD card will be restored.
  • It will be possible to open books located on SD card via external file browsers, and open books downloaded in Chrome.

Since version 2.7 updates will be only available for Android 4.0 and higher.

FBReader for iOS is still under development, we plan to release first public beta by end of summer 2016.
