I've recently purchased an iPad 3 (full disclosure; I've been using Android phones and tablets for about as long as there have been Android phones and tablets ). So for I'm basically pleased with the device, the screen of course is gorgeous, and of the applications that I use regularly, they have a more pleasing design on the iPad than they do on Android.
However there is one point where it falls short compared to what I'm used to (Aldiko reader, for those who are familiar with it) which is it's ability to manage a large library of Epub books. I have just under 1000 books that I've loaded on to the tablet. The iBooks app however has very poor library skills (one man's opinion). Since I primarily use the tablet as a reader, this is an issue for me.
I'm looking for a reader that does the following (in order of importance);
1) A way to indicate that a book has been read (or not read). This is a must have for me, I read 2 or 3 books a week on average, it's hard for me to keep up with what I've read just by the title, especially in a series. Often I don't remember where I left off in a series (I rarely finish a long series. I get 'bored' with it and move on to something else and come back later).
2) The ability to read the 'back of the book' to get a synopsis about the story. I know that data is in the epub for some of my books, but Ibooks won't show it to me.
3) A 'recent reads' or 'currently reading' section. In Aldiko I'd queue up books that I'm interested in simply by opening them, which would put them in a 'recent reads' area. Then when I'm finished with one book I'd first look there to see if there is anything that strikes my fancy.
Anyone have any thoughts on what to try?
