    I'm looking for a reader with seamless 5-way functionality and variable autoscroll.

    I've tried Palm E-Reader Pro, I-Silo, and Teal with my 650. I liked the interface best with Teal, but haven't yet tried any of these out with my T700p. Can someone else who enjoys reading novels this way make a recommendation for me?

    Try mobipocket to round out your review.. If tomeraider had 5-way support, I'd suggest it as well, but unfortunately it doesn't.

    (I still haven't decided yet, so I'd ;ove to hear what others think.

    Mobipocket is my fav. Works great and its free. You can annotate and the annotations can be viewed/edited on your desktop or other handheld.

    Will Mobipocket read the standard Palm database format (.pdb), or is it proprietary? And does it have autoscroll? I checked out the website, but couldn't find a featureset.

    If does have autoscroll. Works with proprietary format DRM ebooks. (Cross platform reader support - Max, Windows, Linux, PocketPC, PalmOS).

    It supposedly supports plain text files and rss news feeds as well...

    Also supports custom fonts..

    I have a substantial number of books in .pdb format. I'd invested in a wonderful conversion utility some time ago, called AportisDoc, that converted a number of html and txt publications to .pdb so that I could import to my Palm. While MobiReader sounds versatile, I need a standard .pdb reader to fit my specific needs.

    If you post an aportisdoc pdb doc to the forum, I am willing to test, and see if it works.

    Thanks for your offer-- they're copywritten books, so I don't think I can upload here. If you PM me your email addy, I'd be happy to send you one.

    This freeware app is terrific! It appeared to convert my .pdb files to .txt. The interface is clean and uncluttered, and the 5-way works fine, including the ability to alter the speed of auto scrolling by pressing up or down. I just can't access the tool icons on the bottom of the screen with the 5-way-- if someone can figure out this functionality, that would be great.

    The one difficulty I have is with the font sizes-- they're native to the Palm OS. I wish there were something a tad larger than the standard size. MobiReader DOES allow you to import fonts without any additional utility! Is there a good (preferably free) font set that I could try?
