    If beta testers are correct Stanza, The best ereader for IPad is dead thanks to Amazon.

    Yip, it won't work in IOS 5 unfortunately. I'm gutted as this was my reader of choice. Currently testing out Bluefire as a replacement. Sad thing is, I think it would be a relatively easy fix to add IOS 5 support as the app launches - it just throws an exception and hangs on the library page. It seems development has ceased for the app though. :(

    Amazon bought Stanza a while back, so some people have been guessing that Amazon might let Stanza die and just keep up its Kindle app.

    Yip, I like Bluefire, it works very well, Its just not quite as good as Stanza but a decent replacement. it would be nice if it showed how far through a book you are on the library page and if it would also save custom colours to make it easier when swapping between day and night themes.

    GoodReader is an excellent replacement, more so if you use DropBox. It's not free but worth the current $4.99.

    Except that right now, unfortunately, Goodreader can't read epubs.

    I'm still holding out hopes for Stanza - though those hopes are fading fast. I, too, will probably switch to Blufire. It is a good app...
