Unlike some other bare-bone software e-book readers, Icecream Ebook Reader offers you all the features present in the most sophisticated hardware readers and then some more. Not only it opens in an elegant interface, but it also presents you the book contents in various reading modes, all with clear and customizable font types and colors. Navigability is guaranteed thanks to its comprehensive controls, the table of contents, and the use of bookmarks.
This attractive e-book reader supports all the most widely used formats of electronic books, such as EPUB, MOBI, FB2, or PDF, together with comic book files in CBR and CBZ formats. You can easily create your own library by uploading your favorite books and folders to the program’s virtual bookshelves. Alternatively, you can display your book collection as a table showing the title, the author, the progress, the notes, etc.
Once selected, you can read your book in various ways – as you would with a conventional book (complete with a realistic page turn effect), in two-column pages, in full screen mode, or as a continuous book, and in either “day mode” or “night mode” to fit the existing light conditions better. The navigation scrollbar will help you move along the book even more quickly, while the program’s support for bookmarks will let you jump to your favorite passages in a snap. The table of contents (when available in the e-book), your own annotations and highlighted text, together with the built-in search engine (suitable for page numbers and text alike) complete the tool’s high level of navigability.
Icecream Ebook Reader adds to all the functionality present in the best hardware e-readers all the flexibility that the best software e-book reader can offer. However, there is still room for improvement, and that is why Icecream has developed a PRO version to which you can upgrade to multiply the possibilities.
