    yes it's definitely my fav, been using it for a long time. thanks for posting the latest version. btw, do you know how to add new fonts to this application? I've seen the add new font option in profiles but it doesn't recognize ttf or otf fonts store in my memory card. so what format of fonts does it support?

    The program asks me only once everytime I run it for access to the storage, after this I see no other security questions :/

    Well, phone:5800XM, fw:52.0.007, java:1.6.
    Almost every action is folowed by ask for permission to read or change user data. Even after opening file it looks like every page is ask... After more than 30 in succession i had to quit. But, that is very hard to do through a task manager...
    I'm glad to see that it works on your phone.

    The pdf format may 'represent' (for lack of a better word) info, pics, etc quite well, and do a good job as a readable format on the pc.
    But almost all mobile devices, ranging from the Kindle to the Iphone, use formats like EPUB, .mobi, etc. THESE are real, readable ebook formats. Foliant is the only option in hand if you want to spend time reading, rather than zooming in and out in a pdf reader (Adobe LE, if you can afford it, or something cheaper and inferior).
    Cheers!
