Best Software for Annotating?

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 20:50:16 GMT

Hi y'all. There really is a forum for everthing! I love it. I would like some advice on what is the best ereader or software for extensive annotating and highlighting. I need something that would enable me to arrange and save the selections into, say, 20 different searchable categories. I'm using Kindle app on Ipad and also Overdrive right now, but the four different highlight colors won't cut it. I'm wanting to group similar information from multiple books into these categories. If there is nothing out there that'll do this I'd love to hear your thoughts on the best way I can get this done. Cut and paste? Upload and download? Thanks.

Ereader for private epub technical manuals

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 08:26:04 GMT

Hi, I work in the IT department of a small firm that makes industrial equipments. Our employees have tablets with manuals and checklists useful to complete the installation tasks at clients' factories. Unfortunately tablets are not easy to read in direct sunlight... Since our manual are in epub format, we would like to migrate to a good epub reader. Here is what we are looking for: * Size from 6 to 10 inches * Price 100-200 euro * Epub and possibly PDF support * High resolution screen (300 ppi?) * No link to an ebook store: the device will be used only for read our manuals (loaded by the IT guys) * Possibility to fully disable internet connection (for security reasons and for longer battery life) * Possibly sd card * Long battery life * Possibility to load extra fonts in opentype format Could you suggest some models?

White vs black bezel for reading Ebooks with an LCD tablet

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 22:35:31 GMT

I am planning to get a 12.9" iPad Pro mainly for reading magazines and ebooks. Most ebooks and magazines have black fonts printed on white background. Based on this information, should I get one with a black or a white bezel? Which one would give better reading experience?

Kobo Aura HD compared to H2O V2 and One

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 14:16:16 GMT

Hello I have ovned a Kobo Aura for some time now. I use it to read epub, mostly purchased and downloaded from Google play store. But I would like to know what have improved with the latest generation of the Kobo readers like One and H2O v.2. Will they be snappier to maneuver in the menus and libraries and do they have better touch screens compared to the Aura HD? Thanks

Frontlit eInk 6" device Kobo vs Onyx/Boyue etc

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 23:10:42 GMT

I've owned Kindle, and currently have a Kobo Aura HD. Considering a new 6" frontlit device. I think I know the pros&cons of the Kindle and Kobo ecosystems. I have a few questions about the benefits of the non-Kobo (or Kindle) devices. (Reviews in mainline media seems to only cover Kindle and Kobo.) Are the frontlight temperature adjustable in devices like Boyue T63 and Onyx c67ML carta2? Since these run Android (although very old versions), I assume I can find suitable ePub reading apps for syncing read status (and notes/highlights) with similar apps on iOS and newer android phone/tablets? (And even macOS/Linux apps?) Are there other benefits Onyx etc offers that I should consider? Better dictionaries? (I guess buttons are nice, but I don't miss 'em very often on my Kobo.) Any other non-Kobo/Kindle 6" 300 DPI devices I should take a look at? One thing I wish Kobo would have implemented by default: A night mode/inverse mode. (I have to manually reinstall the hack upon every OS update.)

Looking or an ebook based on these features

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 11:00:52 GMT

Hi guys, I am currently looking for an e-ink reader but I feel a little overwhelmed by the choices. *Crucial features:* * Not a Kindle (barring an excellent reason) * Can use calibre plugins * Not a Yotaphone or those gigantic and costly 13'' readers *Optional features, from highest to lowest in terms of importance:* * A good build, high reliability and a pleasure to actually use * flexible in terms of what the user can do with it (basically, I want to avoid the "walled garden" design choice, but if the build is good enough I can overlook that) * Can read both mobi and epub files * Physical page turn buttons * A backlight * An orange light feature similar to f.lux * A color other than white That's a lot of unreasonable demands but I'm happy to listen to any suggestion even if they have few of the optional features. Old and obscure devices are fine too. Thanks for reading :)

Which screen protector has no artifact?

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 23:40:36 GMT

Is there any screen protector that has no artifact at all? I want a screen protector that doesn't change the display quality and doesn't add any more reflection than the device already has. Most of the screen protectors I heard about are either reflective or anti glare but the anti glare one changes the display quality somewhat. It may looked pixelated or it may dull the color somewhat. This is for iPad Pro 12.9" second generation

Small eInk device

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 15:50:51 GMT

Hi! I haven't been paying attention to new products for a while, but is there a nice, really small eInk devices (like Kobo Mini or even smaller) out there, with front side lighting, that I should consider? Tried searching a bit, but only found 6" devices ...

I have to replace my NOOK Tablet BNTV250A

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 18:43:53 GMT

One issue I'm having is I tried to add a new OS to it and although I got it working, it is sluggish and slow. I simply can't handle using it anymore. As some of you know, Overdrive and any other apps were no longer supported by Barnes and Noble, that's why I went with a "developers" new OS to try on my Nook. So now I'm determined to just buy another tablet. I have the newer Fire Tablet 7" but have never enjoyed it, it's just been a quick, cheap fix for me until I could buy something I would love like I did my Nook. Does anyone relate?? If so, I would love to hear some recommends on something that would be in my price-range of under a hundred dollars. I know that's not a lot these days, but it is what I have to spend. I am leaning towards another 7" screen (the Nook was actually 7.5). The enclosure measurements are 8 x 5 and I had bought a beautiful "expensive" book cover with the snap in clips. I would love to find something that would fit in that as most of the covers now have these silly rubbery bands and the tablet just flops around in there:( (see pics of mine below). Anyway, I really want something with as many bells and whistles as I can get. Something someone else has bought, and loves;) Thanks for any help, Denise

What are those 3 buttons at the bottom? Are those physical buttons or is it just some sort of design ?

Aura One VS Aura H2O2

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 17:57:15 GMT

Hubby surprised me yesterday and asked why I wasn't considering the Aura One as well. I never even thought about it since we're kind of cheapos. Lol. For goodness sakes I have to sell my poor kobo glo and Kindle paperwhite (a guy is coming later today to probably buy it for $60) to get the upgrade. Lol. So now I'm wondering if this will probably be my ereader for the next five years (that's how long I had the Glo, only six months for the Kindle. It didn't suit me.) I should probably consider the One as well. Is it worth the extra $50 in your thoughts? My library doesn't use overdrive but the girl at chapters thought I could easily get a card in the big city if I stopped by even if I don't live there...
