TechnoScore, the apps development wing of SunTec recently launched an ePub and ePub Fixed-Layout reading app for Windows, branded ReaDows. With the availability of both desktop and web versions of this ePub reader, it works online as well as offline. ReaDows runs perfectly on Windows 7 and 8, both 32-bit and 64-bit editions, and is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, IE, and other popular browsers.
Built specifically to facilitate reading books in ePub format for Windows users, ReaDows comes equipped with the ability to use bookmarks, look for specific content, create notes while reading, track reading progress by highlighting the words/ lines/ paragraphs and much more. Readows also allows you to implement DRM for your ePub files, which means that your eBooks are secure from being copied and shared without proper rights and legal agreements.
As of now, ReaDows supports both ePub 2 and ePub3 eBook formats. In the future versions however, it plans to support more formats, for instance MOBI, DjVu, and other prevalent formats. Murli Pawar, VP, Technology Division, says: “Our aim is to deliver the best e-reading experience on Windows platform. We are also trying to tap into massive windows users, mostly left out of the loop by iOS and Android based eReader app developers.”
Readows features a neatly designed user interface offering smooth and easy user experience in terms of usability and navigability, with readily accessible table of contents and easy findability while flipping through the pages in the book. It also offers multimedia content support (video and audio) and can play animation built on HTML5. With Multilingual support, Readows aims to make e-reading accessible to readers directly in their native languages, and to increase the reachability of content.
Support for ePub Fixed-Layout in Readows opens up access to a wide range of eBook categories, both for parents and their kids, including right from complex cookbooks and graphical travel guides to illustrated children’s books that breathe stories to life displayed in multimedia, or read-aloud narration that lets young readers closely follow the text as words get highlighted on screen as they are read out.
