Enjoy your DRM-free ebooks with simplicity by the power of metadata.
Native ebook readers are not enough if you have a comprehensive DRM-free digital books library. In that case, you’ll surely enjoy Booklover for its expanded possibilities with better usability and management. It perfectly suits the books purchased at indie/publisher-direct stores online, or which you created by scanning a printed book. The metadata-driven library management makes it easy and fun to enjoy thousands of books.

- Exclude/Include book files from the iTunes/iCloud backup target

Actually, the developer thought about each and every detail of the app. That’s really impressive. For example, they offered a “Responsive Shadow” feature — it renders book shadow based on the number of pages. That makes this digital experience to close to real life reading.
Or the HUD feature — the possibility to show/ hide book attributes.
The app already includes 13 chapters of “Give My Regards to Black Jack” by SHUHO SATO so that you can enjoy this awesome Japanese medical drama classic. Also, it ensures smooth new user onboarding — you already have a book added to test out the app possibilities.
For me the major use case is reading the reports and white papers – the book management possibilities of the app, especially tagging, make it a breeze to keep all the files organised. The reading options are also perfect for reading text and viewing the tables and images.
Booklover is a universal application. The current version of the app opens DRM-free ebooks in PDF and CBZ/ZIP/CBR/RAR formats.
