FBSync for FBReader ** Root **

FBSync for FBReader ** Root **


This application requires root to access FBReader's data! If you do not have a rooted phone, or you deny this application root access, it will not function properly.

Designed to work with the android e-book reader, FBReader, this app will sync your position (by paragraph and word) in every e-book you've opened with FBReader to the web. Ideal if you have multiple Android devices that you use with FBReader to read e-books on, or to back up/restore your positions before wiping your device.

Once installed, all you have to do is specify a unique username and PIN # to identify you in the preferences, then click the orange icon to sync your positions. Use the same username/pin combination on multiple devices to sync the book positions from one device to another.

When syncing, only positions that are farther along than your old synced position is saved, so if you read a book from the beginning to end (like the typical human) you should be good to go.

With v1.0.14, added a Dropbox interface that will allow you to sync your actual book files from one devices to another (Or just back them up) using your very own Dropbox account!

I am not affiliated in any way with the creators of FBReader, I'm just an avid fan of the application who saw a need, and decided to fill it.

Recent changes:
v1.0.26 - Updated to use new Dropbox API. Added ability to sync book positions to Dropbox. Implemented part of the FBReader API to add "Sync" to the menu item. Removed syncing of "Recent" books, it rarely worked correctly due to timing issues.

v1.0.19 - Fixed several problems that occurred when using FBSync on Honeycomb devices. Confirmed to work now on Acer Iconia A500 tablets, expected to work on all Honeycomb devices.

Why does it say invalid account on both my devices?

seems fishy it needs user and pass and it "preferably" asks for email. this seems like a scam for getting emails and passwords. just being a bit paranoid but I guess it is kinda warranted here.

Works great when I remember to sync I find this app very useful. The only draw back I find is remembering to sync. I also use Moon reader and like its build in sync., but FB reader is more robust and will read books that Moon reader can't. So this is a good addition to FBreader

Too many permissions. Why does it want access to accounts? Suspicious. I'll pass. Besides, Google's own reader sync just fine without root.

Good, but should be integrated into FBReader to avoid requiring root access I have both an Android tablet and smartphone, but only the tablet is rooted. I suppose it does give me comfort knowing that for the dozen or two books I am reading at one point or another, they are backed up in Dropbox with the latest page read. I only wish root access was not required, because my smartphone does not have a reliable and simple root method. Honestly, this functionality should be integrated into FBReader itself, and I would encourage the developer to look into working with the FBReader team to make the app far more productive and reliable. Having plug-ins helps make a program more useful, but having those functions built in to the core would be even better. I think that this would provide a better end user experience, possibly increasing market share.
