Horrible news, there are so many nice little features with Stanza. Does Blufire support Calibre libraries? This is so wrong, it's nothing like Kindle!
Edit: wow, no offense to Blufire, but it's not half the app that Stanza is. Stanza is the GoodReader of epubs! I hope someone takes that space back.

I find Bluefire the closest app to Stanza and I have emailed the Devs requesting some features like saving custom colour themes, finger scroll for brightness, book progress at a glance in the library page and also the current chapter highlighted in the TOC.
I would encourage others to do the same if these want to see this app develop.

I understand your point of view. All of my purchased books are from Amazon so the Kindle app works great. PerfectReader is another good app.Originally Posted by Mickey330

I just want an app that I can view heaps of PDF files in. I don't want all this cloud shizzle or some hawker looking over my shoulder and trying to control how I buy my reading. Stanza let me just drag a doc int a folder and that was that. However, it seemed to fail repeatedly on my phone and pad. I looked at Bluefire and its manual rattle son about DAM, adobe reader and a heap of stuff I'm not interested in. Shall I go back to paper?

I was bummed about Stanza until I tried Megareader. Silly name, but it's better and works great on ios5.Originally Posted by MouseyHowsee
I used Stanza and I'm missing it.. It was nothing special as far as a reader goes.. I could probably be happy with most of the other readers out there, But Stanza let me search different databases for books.. This includes the Gutenberg Press for some of the old free classics. I've tried other readers and can't seem to do Title and Author searches on the Gutenberg Press database. I have three books that I had downloaded and was getting around to read them when I had time.. Now I can't because stanza is toast
Megareader has Gutenberg press and a few others. Try it you'll like it.Originally Posted by jwt873
