Aldiko Book Reader

Aldiko is an e-book reader for Android operating systems. It supports the EPUB format for digital publications and incorporates the ability to browse online catalogs of thousands of books (including thousands of free public domain works) and download them directly to the user’s personal library.

The application features a bookcase-like user interface, allowing the user to browse their eBook collection. It also provides a customizable reading experience through configurable fonts and background colors, font type and size, margin size, screen brightness, pagination mode (which imitates turning pages in a book), etc. In addition, the application allows users to import their own books to read on the go. Aldiko does not support embedded fonts.

The app has been renewed over time, as it could not be otherwise. It has been designed with the aesthetic line offered by the so standardized Holo style and this is one of the applications that best exemplify the aforementioned design, with a great workmanship that is quickly discovered when you first navigate through this new version. also brings some succulent improvements in performance, library organization, and reading statistics.

a greater incorporation of the metadata of the eBook, so now we will have more information about the eBooks we have with what the organization of our library will improve significantly. As a complement to all this, the user of Aldiko you can apply filters to the metadata, carrying out specific searches both in its catalog and in the stores.

In addition, we have a wide catalog of books to download through Feedbooks (although the truth is that it could have more titles in Spanish). It is compatible with the EPUB standard so we can add our own eBooks to it with relative ease. There will be those who prefer to read eBooks on electronic ink screens but the alternative for occasional readings on the mobile screen is not bad.

The recommended file type for digital books is the EPUB. There are paid and free. For example, if you do a search in Google for the title of a book, I recommend that you put EPUB at the end of the title of the book so that you can download it from that format. I indicate the procedure to import it to Aldiko.

If you are in the bookcase view part, you click on the little house and it takes you to the import the books. You choose the file option and then you can choose the file to import and that’s it, you already have a book in your library. You do it as many times as you want and when you finish we return again to the bookseller view and we have our own bookstore. As you can see in the image, if the book has a cover, it will be seen in the library and it is very cool.
