Mobipocket Reader (Ebook Reader) free
The best free ebook reader for the Windows Mobile is hands down the Mobipocket reader. This free application is for Windows Mobile, Desktop Computers and various other handhelds. It features autoscrolling, like movie credits. It also allows you to make ebooks out of Word, HTML, PDF and many other document types. It has a direct connection to an ebook store. If you install a dictionary it will look up words from out of the books. If you install a book on your desktop, when you dock your handheld it automatically syncronizes your books to the handheld. Not only that but it allows you to annotate your books with bookmarks, highlighting, notes etc. The annotations also synchronize with your handheld. There are lots of books to choose from on the site, dictionaries, medical books, bibles etc. Plus you can build and sell your own with encryption using the free Creator app.

Check my device list
First, the download is free.
Second, most my use with the product is creating my own ebooks out of documents for reading purposes which is also free.
This is my first time posting to the site and I wanted my post to be professional and informative unlike a lot of other posts that dont have pics or good general information.
Sorry, I am not a spammer or affiliatied with Mobipocket in any way, but a power user who likes good info.
I don't like spammers either.
Before you bash check out the product.

I Agree 100% with drlebey.

I have tried many ebook readers and I always come back to mobipocket. It is BY FAR the best one I have come across.

How does it compare to uBook? New versions of uBook are not free but I think the old one worked pretty well.

As the original author stated..maybe you should TRY it before you complain about it....I keep an assortment of books on my storage card and mobireader does a great job of making them readable...keeps your spot so when you reopen it, you are right back where you started and up/down on the dpad to navigate.

When you import the pdf it fits everything to screen. You can adjust the font size and it also brings in the pics, link etc. Plus, and this is a big plus, it autoscrolls the screen and you can adjust the scroll speed.

The Alreader program looks interesting, but is there an english version? If so, could you post a direct link to the site?

Reading PDF on QVGA is always pain in the a$$ due to the screen and PDF file format limitations. I use freeware Haali Reader that has these main features:

- Loads plain text and XML files.
- Cyrillic encodings support with autodetection.
- Last viewed position in file is saved on exit.
- ClearType support.
- Any font/size can be selected.
- Fullscreen and landscape mode.
- Colors can be adjusted.
- Text search.
- Dictionary support. Tapping a word opens a translation window.
- Automatic hyphenation (russian language only).
- Table of contents and bookmarks
- Multiple columns support (1-4)
- PRC/PDB files support (plain text and XML only, HTML is not supported).
- Builtin ZIP archives support.
- Autoscroll (controlled from keyboard/buttons only, settings are in Options->Buttons).
