There’s a new iPhone and iPad app from eBooks.com called Ebook Reader. It’s available for free from the iTunes store.
According to the Ebook Reader website, the app supports iPhone/iPad format, ePub for Adobe Digital Editions, and unencrypted ePub.
Not sure what they mean by iPhone/iPad format; it certainly doesn’t support Apple’s proprietary ePub DRM. Perhaps it implies that they use a different format for sending ebooks to this app?
If you have an account with eBooks.com, all your previously purchased ebooks are supposed to be available in the app, as well as those purchased online and not within the app itself. The app can be installed on up to 3 iDevices per account so that you can read on whichever device you choose.
Here is the description of the Ebook Reader app’s features from iTunes:
- Turn pages with a tap or swipe
- Zoom with a pinch
- Never lose your place in the book
- Landscape or portrait orientation is lockable
- Read sample chapters before you buy
- Easy navigation inside the book
