    pReader will work. You have to open/close several times, at least that's my experience. The dev is aware of the problem and is trying to fix it. Take a look at the bug report (the link is on top of page when you first open).

    thanks for the reply,
    the problem I'm having is that after I Load a book the app resets the next time I open and I can't add any books again.

    I have been using Tamoggemon's "Text Editor" app since the summer. It works great: with it you can open and read text files, as well as write them. Before either of the Office-compatible apps got released that allowed for editing, I used Text Editor to create a multitude of txt files that I would email to myself and then convert/add bells and whistles using Word.

    I highly recommend Text Editor.

    Have you tried the 'native' version? That's the one I'm using.

    You need to set internalz pro as the handler; see

    finally found the way that works for me! Print the txt to pdf and then read it. Doesn't have to go through any encoding trouble at all

    Unfortunately, the bug manifests with all versions of pReader, native and SDK on TouchPads that have webOS 3.0.4 installed. The bug is actually in webOS and not pReader. That's why other apps cause the problem as well.

    If you're opening a file that's not in English, you need to change the Character Encoding to the appropriate setting. In a book you've already imported, you pull down the menu in the top left corner of the display, select Change Encoding, then select the correct encoding for the language of the document. Near the top of that list you'll see Chinese.

    If all / most of your books are going to be non-English, you should change the Default Encoding so that new imports will be set correctly. To do this, from the main (Library) screen, pull down the menu, select Preferences, tap the arrow to the right of Text Display to open that set of preferences, tap Def Encoding & select the appropriate encoding. Pull down the menu & select Back to return to the Library.

    If you've got other pReader questions, you might want to drop by the official support thread here: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-homebrew-apps/274511-preader-native-alpha-release-new-post.html
