I have used Palm Reader and MobiPocket Reader but eReader tops them both. It seems to be more widely available; reads more types of the books I've downloaded and has everything you'd need while reading on your Palm device. I've used it on my Treo650 also on my T/X and T5. No problems or complaints - It's all good!
why buy a kindle?
The Kindle is the biggest boondoggle going. Ereading is a simple function. Give me an adequate sized screen (Treo 680) and adjustable fonts (bold and large) and what else do you need? Having a place for an SD card makes things easy and sites like fictionwise.com and baen.com and manybooks.net and gutenberg.org provide a dazzling array of materials, both free and for money. I have 1000 books on my card. It works perfectly--and it's my phone, MP3 player, calendar keeper, email client, etc. One device. Convergence. And no ridiculous prices for Kindle. Ereader is a program that needs some updating in minor areas but the basics work perfectly. There is no real need for anything else. PORTABILITY: Most importantly--if it's on your smartphone, you can be anywhere, it is always with you and consequently you get in reading at unexpected times and places (like a doctor's office..) that you wouldn't otherwise get. Kindle. Bah. Humbug.
I love this program, the auto scroll makes it so easy to read. I ran it on my 680 with Call of the Wild and was enthralled with the book and the program. I can see myself filly up another 8gb card with books!
using it for years
I will only by e-books, if I can. I rarely read books where pictures are significant, so the palm fills the bill for easy access to book content. I always have something to read handy. A free desktop reader is available as well, which is good for when you have your PC/laptop/netbook available. Highly recommended
