Java eBook Reader is the most common title used in thread titles referring to an eBook conversion software. I don’t want to mention the name of the software. Even on the official website of the said coversion tool, they are calling it as reader, when in fact that it is a conversion tool. Conversion tool is totally different to an ebook reader.
It is somewhat deceiving to eBookworms looking specifically for mobile application and not a PC installer. I found it deceiving and to a ebook reader searcher, it is annoying to learn after file download. No, I wasn’t deceived when I already blog the software here long time ago.
I do recommend mobipocket for S40 or another java enabled phones if they are asking for compatible readers. I also recommend converting their file to java format if they have files that need to be converted. These java format files with *.jar or *.jad extension names are stand alone readers just like *.exe ebook files meaning they are executable files or stand alone readers. There’s no need to install a separate reader for these files. I never tried executable (*.exe) ebook files on my PC after my antivirus detected a virus.
To ebook reader developers and promoters, please don’t deceived your possible buyers and consumers. I had a friend who was so disappointed when he encountered such ebook reader that’s why I’m sharing it here.
