    Default Foliant V0.6.2 Beta S60V5 J2ME

    Foliant - mobile eBook reader running on all phones and smartphones with Java support. Main functions are organization of your ebooks collection and comfortable reading. Application based on J2ME platform, MIDP 2.0

    Key features:

    ● Supported formats: TXT, FB2, ZIP, GZip;
    ● Library with grouping books by authors, genres and other parameters;
    ● Search and download eBooks from web;
    ● Ability to comment and evaluate the books;
    ● User-friendly menu (with support for kinetic scrolling - OS 9.4)

    ● Screen rotation 90, 180, 270 degrees;
    ● Accelerometer support;
    ● Ability to disable dictionary;
    ● German localization by Yener.
    Currently my favorite application for ebook reading on my 5800XM. It's fast and easy to use, the only downside is that it supports only txt and fb2 but with Calibre (Ebook managing application for Win,Mac, Linux) you can batch convert anything (Epub, LIT, prc.. you name it) to fb2 and read on the phone. Give it a try if you like to read ebooks.

    You can download Calibre HERE

    IMO it's better than ZXreader, nicer GUI (2 kinds of slide effects) and easy to use with all features you can find in ZXReader. Some fb2 files I have displayed weirdly in ZXReader but fine in Foliant even though using same charset. The only thing I find ZXreader better is ability to set back-light even lower than the system (less than 10%) in Foliant you can't go lower than 10%.
