Default [APP] Fabrik Reader 2.0 | Elegent ebook reader that works seamlessly with Dropbox

Today I give you, Fabrik Reader 2.0! With completely redesigned UI and a render engine that can handle CSS. Read more here.

You might ask, we already got at least 10 different book readers in the android world, why another one? Well, here is thing, among all those 10 different book readers, I just can't find one that really suits me, so I decided to build my own, and here we are

Now, what's so different about Fabrik Reader? Let me ask you a question first, do you really want that much custom preferences in a book reader? Or do you want a book reader that just works beautifully out of the box? Fabrik Reader is definitely not the most feature rich book reader, and what Fabrik Reader gives you, is a really premium, yet really simple user experience. With Fabrik Reader, you get:

★ Complete synchronization of the entire reading experience with your Dropbox. That means, all your books, as well as all your reading progress. So you can use as many devices to read as you want, and everything will just keep in sync automatically.
★ A beautiful interface that will make your reading experience really premium, and easy on your eye.
★ Find covers for your book automatically which make your book looks even better.
★ Share your reading progress(with a beautiful book cover).
★ Some more general stuff in an ebook reader, like adjust text size, screen brightness, night model, etc.
★ Support txt, epub, mobi format (and more will come in the future).

Again, if you want a beautiful book reader that works out of the box, and keeps everything in sync, I think Fabrik Reader is just the way to go. So why not give it a shot? It's free any way!

Want to know more? Here you go: Fabrik Reader on Play Store, Blog, Twitter

[NOTICE] Hi guys, sorry I'm not able to reply every single one of your posts like before. It's just that there are too many of them now and I want to spend as much time as I have to developing Fabrik Reader and make it better. I've posted on the blog a feature request summary. Thank you for your support.

It looks good.
Should post a picture to improve the marketing!


The Dropbox synchronisation feature is cool and something that other readers are lacking.

What about DRM support? Can it open books from Overdrive libraries?

Thank you very much for posing a picture for me! I'm sorry it does not support DRM or OPDS right now, but I'll definitely add them in future release. Now it's only a beta version, I wanted to get some ideas about what people think about this whole design, so it's a little bit pre-mature. More futures will definitely keep coming!

I really like the design I have imported a couple of epub's that i had on my SD, so i'll take it out for a spin later.

One request though: Multi select books to import, and also be able to select and import entire folders (i have 20 epub's in one folder)

Great advice! I'll definitely put it in my todo list. I also think that it may be cool to have something like if you put some book in a dedicated folder in your dropbox, synchronization will automatic import them. So one more for my todo list!
