Hey everybody!
After weeks of searching the internet and looking up some older threads here at XDA, I'm still desperately in need of a at least half-decent CHM reader for Android. Unfortunately there's only crappy and buggy software available (no or bad search feature, problem with compiling the files, unable to view the TOC, etc.)....
I tried EVERY free one (Android Chm EBook Reader, Best Ebook Reader, iReader, Moon Reader, Cool Reader, Cuckoo Reader, etc.) and some paid ones (HYReader, Chm Reader X, etc.) in the Play Store.
The "Best Ebook Reader" used to be quite aceptable but meanwhile there's no actual version available anymore and it seems that there's no support for ICS, because I always get a forced close on both my TF101G and my SGS3 running on stock ICS.
The main issue is, that I need such a reader to read quite big CHM files (about 50-70MB) and that most of the available readers seem to have problems which such big files.
A friend of mine is using the "GoodReader" on his iPad this thing works like a charm! So I'm curious if there's no way to get something like this for Android.

Me also facing same problem

try KingReader...:)

yes there is no good chm reader for android none r at par with CHMate for iOS
however you can try iReader on play store (the one with colorful icon),this works good for ICS.
it has all functions except search button.
i use it regularly and it is able to handle harrisions(273 Mb) without any FC.
but not perfect and i am still in search of one,
if you get some or have some suggestions plz help
thanks

This is a major problem for me as well. I spend way too much time trying to reformat CHM files into EPUB to work WELL on my Android devices. So far it's been pretty hit or miss with converting/editing programs like Calibre and Sigil. There is no good CHM reader on Android. And we really need one.

Try SuperChm. It worked perfectly even when my chm files don't have an index.the search option surely doesn't work when three is no index but it read all medical chm files I tried.
