Default Eread - text file reader

Hello everyone!

Since Zen Xfi 2 doesn't have a build in text file reader i developed a text reading app myself.
The current version(0.95) has most of the features of the planned final version.
During the use of it on Zen I didn't notice any bugs, nor were there any crashes, however I can't guarantee full stability. If the app chrashes, please post a message here describing how it happened. The data file will reset and the library will be empty after crash.
I want to add support for fb2 files, but that comes after proper text file support and gui.

  • Text file support - ASCII and UTF8 with Byte Order Mark encoding with unlimited file size.
  • Full Unicode support!(As full as lua run time supports it..)
  • Navigation - next page, previous page, first page, last page, scroll up+down.
  • Automatically picks up contents lines like chapters etc in text files.
  • Support for bookmarking.
  • Support for font scaling, screen rotation and color switching.
  • More to come.

  • In reader:
    • Tap on screen to go to next page or previous page.
    • Click home button for next page.
    • Hold home or click power button to go to menu.
  • In menu:
    • Tap the empty area in main menu to go back to book.
    • Press home or power button to exit Eread while in main menu.
  • Buttons in menu:
    • Left: Table of contents, Bookmark list, Add bookmark
    • Bottom: Library, Open new book, go to start, go to end, show help.
    • Right: Increase/decrease font size, rotate screen, switch colors.

Known bugs/ unfinished features:
  • No backlight changing.

  • 03/10/2010 version 0.8(Initial release)
  • 08/10/2010 version 0.9(Big changes with many parts completely rewritten for a better app with new functionality)
  • 10/10/2010 version 0.95
