User reviews of Cool Reader
Only started to use ebooks recently. This app seems to work well. Light, easy to use works with the drm free epub's i have tried (which wont work with other apps for some reason). Excellent app :) (Huawei X3 U8510)

What happened to the navigation buttons on Archos devices?? Unusable until buttons are shown again!

Horribly slow to open on a very fast HTC Thunderbolt. It's as if it has to scan the entire SD card every time. FBReader & Aldiko don't have this problem. Also, the page transition animations are horrible.

I use it to read my epub files. Easy to use, fast rendering. Wish they could add PDF support though.
