[APP] Freda – a new ebook reader

[UPDATE: See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?p=7141176 in this thread for an updated version of the program, with links to new screen shots and documentation]

I’ve written a program for reading eBooks on Windows Mobile devices. It can read txt, html and (DRM-free) ePub files.

Freda 2.0

You can find more information in the application thread.
