    Some e-reader apps for ePub are Kobo, Nook, Bluefire Reader - off the top of my head. Generally, they can only read the books from their "parent" company because of DRM coding (i.e. Kobo can only read books from Kobo, the Nook app can only read books from Barnes & Noble, etc). So, if you buy an ePub book from a major company, then you'll have to use that company's app to read it.

    However, if you don't have DRM protection on the ePub, the apps mentioned will read them just fine - and it won't matter which app you use. Then, it just turns into which apps presentation/menu system you like best.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Mickey330,
    Sorry for the delayed reply. Thanks for the info.
    While viewing some epub file in ibooks, and in large font selection, some of the text get hide/cut off in the right side of the margin. But in Adobe Digital Edition (ADE), no such problem occurs. For this reason, I want to know any other epub reader available for ipad. The ibooks version currently loaded in my ipad is 3. Could you please help me to solve this issue? Thanks in Advance.
