Aldiko is the much-loved e-reader app that preceded iBooks, Kindle, Nook and Kobo in the mobile device world, and many Palm users still swear by its superiority. It starts you off with a friendly library look, and comes pre-loaded with many familiar free titles, organized into “shelves” by themes.
There’s no shop connected to Aldiko, and the app DOES allow sideloading of epub files from the SD card in your phone. In this way, it’s a perfect complement to a reader app that doesn’t support that function. Another bonus is the night/day option for reading, which allows you to choose if you’d like black on white or white on black texts. The page turns aren’t as flashy, but they’re quick and competent. As with other mobile reader apps, Aldiko also provides options for font face and size.
Without a huge retail store behind it, Aldiko isn’t entirely in the same class as other e-reader apps, but it looks like a great supplemental app for bringing in your other content.
