- Freda is a free program for reading electronic books (ebooks) on Windows Phone. It reads EPUB (DRM-free), HTML and TXT format books. The program offers customisable controls, fonts and colours, plus annotations and bookmarks, and the ability to look up dictionary definitions and translations. Freda understands EPUB formatting information (bold/italic text, margins and alignment) and can display images and diagrams in books. Freda can get books from on-line catalogs like Feedbooks, Smashwords and the Gutenberg Project. Or if you have an existing book collection, you can use SkyDrive, DropBox or Calibre to share it with your phone. Freda can also download books from any website, using an in-application web-browser. You can download books and keep them on your phone, so you can carry on reading when you don't have network connectivity, and you can pin your favourite books to the Start page. The manual is at http://www.turnipsoft.co.uk/freda . New in v2.5: - Download books from SkyDrive - Keep as many books as you want on your phone - Assorted UI and usability improvements Quick Start: Flick left to see a bookshelf containing a list of classic books. To open one, tap the book title. You will see a screen with spinning dots. When the book is downloaded and ready for you to start reading, you will see the first page of the book. There is a page number indicator, "-/-" at the bottom of the page. Moving dots will remain on the screen during the scanning process (maybe for several minutes), but you can begin reading right away - tap the bottom of the page to begin reading. For more information, refer to the manual. [NOTE: this version, 'freda-chinese', is the same program as the 'freda' app on Marketplace, except that it includes support for reading Chinese books. The program is otherwise identical (but, because of the need to add Chinese font data, it is a much larger install)].

good，but opens too slowly
How to add a bookmark?
Read Chinese epub book is quite good. However, only one book can be added. When I add more than one book, own previous books changed to the last one. Really bad:(
Useful to read my owned txt.
Lame, right edge is cut
It has a big problem that the line spacing is not Correct.
Right edge is cut. Changing encoding cause loading a book forever.
不知道能不能加上 PDF 的支援，以及強化 htm 檔案的相容性
