iSilo is a desktop e-book reader that provides an intuitive and clean working environment for helping you read PDB and plain text files. Its strong points are: support for hyperlinks, tables, images, and formatted text.

Clean feature lineup

The well-organized set of functions makes it easier for you to browse throughout the uploaded document. The drag-and-drop support is included in the feature pack, and you can make use of it for importing documents in the main panel.

You may go to the previous or next page, jump to the Home section, check out the bookmarks included in the file, and perform search operations. Additionally, you can go to a user-defined page or view the first or last page, and activate the full screen mode.

There’s support for several tweaking parameters that help you hide several elements from the GUI, as you may conceal the toolbar and status bar. The layout is perfectly functional and intuitive but it looks a bit unpolished and needs some adjustments here and there.

Handy features

iSilo lets you print or export the current document to plain text file format, view a list with recently opened files, copy the information embedded in a single page or the entire document to the clipboard, organize files with the aid of categories and subcategories, create annotations, as well as check out extra details about documents, such as title, author, publisher, date, size, and file path.

Smart features bundled in this program allow you to mark locations and create bookmarks, so you can quickly go back to any fragment. The autoscroll option is another feature worth being taken into consideration.

Plenty of configuration settings to play with

You are allowed to align the text to the right, show the scroll bar when in full screen mode, change the key behavior (up, down, left, right), alter the text in terms of font, font style, color, and size, change the background color, and automatically save your current settings (e.g. local bookmarks, jump history, last viewed location in the document).


iSilo provides very good output results and imports data from a document pretty quickly. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

Bottom line

All in all, iSilo mixes up an intuitive interface with a handy suite of features for making it possible for you to read PDB and plain text files, and is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their computer skills.
