Editors' Review

ePub Reader for Windows can open any ePub file you have on your computer, and it provides an adjustable window for you to view the document. With this app, you don't have to have a special device for reading these types of files and publications.

Pros

Quick conversions: In addition to opening and displaying ePub files, this app also gives you the ability to convert them to PDF or JPG format. This is handy, especially if you want to send the file in an email or download it to another device.

Nice interface:The main window for this app displays all controls you need to access the program's main features. Buttons are clearly labeled, and when you open a file, navigation tools appear in the left-hand column, while the content of each page shows up in a larger window on the right. You can also adjust the size of this window to display the pages however you prefer.

Cons

Document navigation: It would be nice if the controls for paging through the document, itself, were a little smoother. The only real options are to click on each page separately on the left-hand column when you want to change what's displayed or to use the mouse scroll button. The scroll button can be a little too sensitive, though, and cause the display to jump back several pages at once.

Bottom Line

Overall, this app is functional, but doesn't feel much like reading a book. It's also not free. You can try it out for 15 days, but to continue using it beyond that period, you'll have to purchase a license for $29.95.

"This program is bad and I don't like it."

October 28, 2014  |  By Barfallonyou68

 |  Version: ePub Reader for Windows 5.3

Pros

Its icon fits nicely in unwanted space on my desktop.

Cons

It failed to load the first book I loaded. The second book was garbled. The third book loaded, and then I discovered that the authors made no attempt to make books readable by default.

Summary

I have not found that this program installs malware or additional programs as other reviewers have indicated; however, the program does not work out of the box and, quite frankly, I don't have the patience to explore further with so many alternatives available. This is the perfect program for an elderly relative who is looking for reasons to be irritated with modern technology.

"Great ePub Reader!"

January 22, 2014  |  By Jim-Sandy

 |  Version: ePub Reader for Windows 5.0

Pros

Great improvement per Version 5.0. The interface seems more comfortable and handy. It works well on Win7 and Win8, and the Unicode language issue is fixed. Great!

Cons

Appealing the interface is added now. But the resizing should be more improved.

Summary

Great product, great support.

"Don't download"

January 19, 2014  |  By hyaraku

 |  Version: ePub Reader for Windows 5.0

Pros

no pros, the program just doesn't quite appealing

Cons

For the epub reader, just saying this application needs much more improvements.
The interface is not appealing, the program is much not better than an simpleton and when i opened a file, it mistaken ' for an unusual word making it harder to read an epub file, and it's much complicated when i read those book, it's interface makes it harder to read especially those margins and those page layouts.
and that's not enough, it NEEDS TO SPEND MONEY to get a full version of it.

Summary

So not recommended
Dont buy it, or download it
it's worst program ever

Open the epub file quickly and handfully. It's so easy to use, just click the charpters listed in the left, and you'll reader the contents immediately. I didn't find any spyware or malware.

Cons

Not find yet. There are 10 days for trial, but I think it's ok.

Summary

Good product!

"Didn't work, and they expected me to pay for it"

October 07, 2013  |  By Ptorq

 |  Version: ePub Reader 4.0

Pros

None. Half a star is really far too generous.

Cons

Buggy - I attempted to open an ePub file, and the program just kept telling me "file name cannot be blank".

Also, the program assumes you have your windows toolbars laid out in the default arrangement, hitting the "Maximize" button hid the "Open" menu behind my taskbar, which I've moved to running vertically down the left side of my screen, and left my desktop visible down at the bottom of the screen. This would be a minor annoyance in a freeware program... if it actually worked... which this doesn't.

Summary

Utter garbage. I still haven't found an EPUB reader that I consider to be moderately adequate, but this isn't even remotely close.

"Easy and Helpful"

September 26, 2013  |  By mnsamuels81

 |  Version: ePub Reader 4.0

Pros

It is very easy to use and helpful software. You can easily convert Ebook in PDF format. It provides weeklong free trial period, which is the best thing in this software.

Cons

The quality of converting PDF is not up to the mark, so you could not read the content easily.

Cons

It works well on my PC. The product owner is kind also, you'll get more help if you mail to them. Click 'Direct Download Link' will download the version without plug-in.
