FBReader for iPhone and iPad

FBReader for iOS came to the App Store in September 2017. It works on iOS 9.3 and higher.

The app uses the same engine as FBReader for other platforms and supports the same text formats. The “main” formats are ePub, fb2 (including fb2.zip), and mobi (a.k.a. Kindle azw3). The reader also opens HTML, RTF, MS Word documents (*.doc), and plain text. “Non-text formats”, like PDF, DjVu, and comics, are currently not supported.

The free version of FBReader for iOS has some limitations. The library is limited to ten books, and online translators are disabled. You can upgrade to the full version for a fee.

The iOS app does not work with book catalogues (e.g., OPDS). We are working on this feature. The release is postponed to 2024. The problem is not only technical, as Apple has quite restrictive guidelines for their App Store. In particular, it is not possible to integrate any bookstores into the iOS app.

Latest version: 1.1.11, published 18th October 2023

The current version works on devices with iOS/iPadOS 13 and higher. We do not release updates for older systems anymore. However, FBReader 1.1.4 is still available on the App Store for older devices users.
