Back in February, News Writer and XDA member WenWM wrote about the first release of the e-book reader, Freda. Now, XDA member Jim Chapman has updated the application to version 2.0, which has many fixes and improvements from the original version such as enhancements to the management of ‘presets’, RSVP/Autoscroll was implemented, option to ‘Add OPDS Catalog’ to the library and many more, all in a more finger friendly version.

[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.
For other formats you can use Calibre to convert them epub.
The program is called ‘Freda’ – short for ‘free reader’, since it is free software (both in the sense of ‘free beer’, as I am not charging for it, and in the sense of ‘free speech’, as I am licensing my code under the GPL).
You can find more information in the application thread.
