    well, everybody needing a f2b reader has choice using a free app

    there exists:

    http://colel.info/rubooks/ is primary a f2b-reader which understand other formats too...

    or

    http://code.google.com/p/iphonetextreader/ is a ebook-reader and open f2b since 0.6

    ok, i like the look of i2Reader, but this is not $34 worth for me, and i not really own many ebooks in f2b format. well, i actually learning russian, and f2b is a mostly used format for russian ebooks... all books i own, i can open in both, ruBooks and textReader.

    regards, stefan

    Try the following site: Aldebaran, it contains both Russian & English books in fb2 format, like Scanner Darkly, Perfume. The story of a murderer and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

    Sorry but one would have to be a complete idiot to buy an eBook reader for $35....especially hackware.

    If I didn't know better, Id think russians didn't have the slightest concept of US currency.

    Sorry Colel, you are a good programmer but this is ridiculous.

    NB: I have nothing to do either with development, or with pricing of i2Reader, as I am working on GNU/GPL application from neighbour thread - ruBooks.

    My apologies then. Somehow I assumed you were part of RIPDev.
    Well my comment still stands on the app though.
    Someone would have to be very uninformed to spend that kind of money on an eBook reader.

    well, with all of its features, it's missing one important one.........auto scroll, which I'm suprised the Books app for iphone doesn't have it, hopefully will have one soon with an update.

    why would anybody pay for this bloated expensive app when there's the excellent Books app to get?

  15. #15
    $35?? Give me a f*ng break...

    Apple iphone, Asking a rediculous amount of money for something that competitors offer for free "is business"?

    This thread is regarding RipDev's new app i2reader, it just so happens that their new app costs 35 bucks, so while it may be a good app, $35 is effing ridiculous and falls under talking about the app, so we are free to discuss how insanely ridiculous these guys' prices are, at least for this app

    Get serious! Who would spend $35 on an ebook reader! People need money for gas and more important stuff. You can get that free from cracked sources anyway...

    Where can I find good eBooks to use with this software?-- I've read over some suggestions, as well as searched Google, but, it's all crap.
