What is book reading app for Nokia 1520?

Hi,

iOS have iBook, Good Reader. Android have Play Book, Mantano Reader.

What does Windows Phone 8 have in equivalent?

Functionality require are annotations for PDF, Epub and in App dictionary integrated.

Adobe Reader and MS Reader Viewer still need a bit of work to make it more reading friendly. PDF Page crops, highlight, underline adding note ...

Nokia Reading is not available for Lumina 1520 at this stage.

A bit disappointed when I got my First Windows Phone 8 Nokia 1520, I lose most of my app from Android and iOS.

There are several PDF apps which could read books in PDF form, also Nokia Reading in the store along with the Kindle app all in the Microsoft store. You could also read things via the browser or save books to your skydrive account and access them on your Lumia.

 

Good Luck

Re: What is book reading app for Nokia 1520?

Thanks for reply carman58, I did have a look at the AppStore.

None of the following reader can annotate, pdf crop.
1. MS PDF Reader (Can't do anything - no toc, no highlight)
2. Acrobat Reader (on Nokia 1520, the text is a bit blurry)
3. PDF Xpansion Reader (Zoom is slow, no highlight, can't tap to zoom to the text)
4. Liberty (Can't login from dropbox, can't event see book download via web browser and view with Liberty - absolutely useless).
5. Amazon Kindle (Can't view book purchase from Packt or external party). Can't open pdf from SkyDrive...

I was hoping Nokia Reading was able to provide a simple book reading experience (but it does not work on Nokia 1520).

I agree just got mine yesterday and tried to load my epub books. Not happy with the work around. Nokia or Microsoft fix this now! This is a issue that should have been fixed already. You show people reading books on this and how great it is....get us a reader that works with the phone not a go around. Thanks

hi mate,

i use Bookviser for EPUB books and PDF Reader (not the Microsoft one, the one developed by Misha Uliutin) and they work fantastically for the purposes i require of them.
