    I demand to know if this supports text formatting and paragraphing. And bold/italics/underlines too [​IMG]

    Nice interface, decent options. But it only supports .txt and Formatting can't be achieved well with .txts :\

    And you can't read in book layout :/
    That would make this pretty much a perfect eBook app...

    Have you ever heard of ReadMore? Perfect eBook app, though hard to find. Its sideways, has multiple fonts, bold, italics, whatever. I'm trying to get the source code for it and see if I can work an MP3 player into it. THAT would be perfect. Book-style ebook reader + music player. It'd make my long breaks at school go by loads faster

    Why not upload it to the homebrew database here for archival purposes?

    Theres official readmore topic over at gbadev.


    With DSReader i get errors with the bookmarks, however i read somewhere earlier that someone had problems too, which were solved by deleting spaces from filenames.


    Hell! i've got tons of homebrew i should be uploading to gbatemp.

    I'm gonna start doing that soon.

    This homebrew has so smooth font display, it's really great to read books, but I unfortunately could not make it read korean encoded text files.

    I tried to unicode encoded file with arial_unicode font, but that did not change much :-/
    Any idea how to that ?

    Is this project opensource ? I could not find any "official" website nor source code for it... I'd gladly give a hand to support unicode if needed...

    Because I could not find any better ebook reader than DSReader. And I unfortunately did not find a way to read unicode files (see my post: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=117322 ).

    If you know of antialiased unicode text reader, please let me know.
