The Freda ebook reader, which has been popular on various Windows platforms since 2009, is now also available for Android. That means that you can enjoy the same reading experience across your Windows and Android devices, using the app’s features to sync between the two platforms. The Android app is on Google Play – just search for the app by name (Freda) or search for the publisher name (Turnipsoft). It is still in beta-testing right now, so please feel free to offer feedback.

Freda is a free (advertising supported) app which gives you easy access to over 50,000 public domain classic books, free of charge, from Feedbooks, Gutenberg and other on-line catalogs. Or read your own (DRM-free) books in the supported formats: EPUB, FB2, HTML and TXT. App features include:

  • Customisable controls, fonts and colours
  • Highlighting and bookmarks/annotations
  • Integration with on-line catalogs – Feedbooks, Smashwords, Gutenberg
  • Connection to your OneDrive and DropBox accounts for downloading book files
  • Linkage to your Calibre book library
  • Opening books from websites and email attachments, and from files anywhere on your device
  • Ability to tag books by subject, and sort/filter your bookshelf by tag, author, title, and series
  • Text-to-speech, speedread and auto-scroll
  • Automatic synchronisation of your reading position across all the devices you are using
  • A save/restore feature that allows you to copy all books and settings from one device to another
  • The OpenDyslexic font and a range of dyslexic-friendly settings, for use by readers who are affected by dyslexia

For further details, you can take a look at the intro video, the manual, or the support forums. I can’t yet post links to any of them, but you can find them using the ‘support’ option on the main menu in the app. If you have any questions or ideas about the app, I would be glad to hear from you, on this thread, by PM, or by email (jim@turnipsoft.co.uk).
