Mobipocket Reader is a useful application that allows you to read eBooks and news on your computer. The app combines the functions of an eBook reader and a RSS client in the same interface.
The eBook reader allows you to open ePub books and provides access to over ten online stores where you can buy books or download them for free. The users that want more options or want to read their own books can import PDF, HTML, CHM or Microsoft Office files.
All the imported files are automatically converted to the PRC format that is optimized for reading on any type of device. You can also use these books on tablets, phones or other mobile devices. The program offers support for Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Symbian devices and allows you to send a book to your device by using a cable or Bluetooth connection.
An interesting feature of the program is the possibility to highlight certain passages and to add you own thoughts or comments. You can also modify words or entire paragraphs in order to correct their meaning. All the notes and modifications are displayed in the Annotations pane which makes it easier to locate a certain bookmark.
Mobipocket Reader allows you to subscribe to multiple RSS feeds and to read the latest headlines in the same interface. The news library provided by the application can help you start a reading list but some of the feeds are outdated or not available. Fortunately, you can add any RSS link to the database and even import a news list from an OPML file.
The program offers the possibility to send multiple books or articles to your mobile device as a reading list. The reading lists are designed to help you organize articles or books when you are researching a certain topic and you need quick access to multiple sources. Unfortunately, you cannot mix online sources with books in the same reading list so you might need to create two lists for the same topic.
The easy to use interface combined with the ability to convert and to send eBooks to your mobile device recommends this application as an essential tool for all the users that prefer to read books in electronic format.
