Freda, the free ebook reader The popular ebook reader for the Windows Phone platform (and Windows Mobile before that) has arrived on Windows 8. Freda can read EPUB (DRM-free), FB2, HTML and TXT format books. The app understands EPUB formatting information (bold/italic/large text, margins and alignment) and can display images and diagrams in books.
Update 3.6 fixes various bugs and adds - Access to DropBox and SkyDrive book sources - Search and filter your bookshelf - Customise and managing book sources - Edit book metadata (title and author) - Highlight text - Synchronise reading across multiple devices (experimental feature)
Freda is still being actively developed; we're working now on features for the social reading experience (e.g. sharing book lists, reviews and annotations), plus improved page layout and rendering (of images, notably).
If you have any problems with the app, or you have any suggestions for new features, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
