    Tried to remake the classic UI


    Bookr Mod Vita is an ebook reader powered by the muPDF library, ported (nearly rebuilt) from the PSP homebrew.
    It's in a somewhat functional state now and could use some users.

    How's it better than the original?
    • Uses the full resolution of the VITA
    • Has support for more than just PDF, thanks to newer muPDF
    What's Done:
    • Handles all formats muPDF can handle (PDF, CBZ, HTML, ePub, fb2)
    • D-Pad Up/Down of Document
    • Left Analog Panning
    • Saves/Loads last position in a book and on page turn
    • UI Looks similar to Original
    What's Not:
    • Zoom (Currently files fit's to Vita's width) and Rotation
    • Touch Screen Controls
    • Other Documents Types (mobi, djvu, CBR)
    • Bookmarks
    • Icon Sub Menu
    • Fully Customisable Controls/UI
    Future
    • muPDF is used quite naively right now, could improve performance using threads and other muPDF functionality (Display Lists)
    • Discover/Download free books from Gutenberg and such
    • Dictionary
    • Highlighting/Adding marks to PDF
    • SMB?
    • Translations

    Hi,

    I've been looking for an epub vita reader - thank you so much for doing this! Is there a bookmark option?

    Your welcome guys.

    No manual bookmarks yet.
    But it does auto load/save where you were when you open/close a book or close the app. using the exit option.

    You can grab the newer version 0.2.1 off github which also saves on page change if you need that.

    Nice work.
    Can you add support for clickable links in index or references in epubs.

    What is the title ID of this? I'd like to use the orange filter/Vita Flux with it.

    EDIT: So I think the title id is PATH00027 but I can't seem to get the filter to work - has anyone been able to do it?

    EDIT2 Got it to work after a bit of fiddling - if anyone else needs help let me know! And thanks again for the awesome app!

    Hi, I hope you help me with this problem,
    Download a pdf from vita with download manager, the problem is that it does not appear in the bookr file browser.
    There is some way that it appears to be able to open it.

    How hard would it be to add cdr support?
    If somebody can point me in the right direction, I am willing to do it myself (after setting up the vita sdk in the first place...)

    - some code on how other projects actually read cdr files
    - how they are handled internally (e.g. are they decompressed in ram?)
    - how did the op debug his code in the first place?
    - would love to get in touch with op for any help!
