What is FBReader

  • FBReader is a popular (30+ million installs) multi-platform ebook reader. We release regular updates for Android and iOS.
  • FBReader uses its own book parser and rendering engine. The engine is lightweight, fast, and highly customisable.
  • FBReader supports many ebook formats, including ePub, mobi, fb2, HTML, RTF, plain text. The primary formats are ePub and fb2.
  • FBReader is not open-source since 2015. For developers, we offer FBReader SDK: a library that allows creating own ebook readers.

  • For Android devices, you can choose the stable version or beta of the upcoming new release. The app is available on Google Play, on Huawei AppGallery, and directly from our site.
