    I'm running out of space on my Visor and I'm trying to get rid of the programs I don't need. I currently have SmartDoc and iSilo installed. Instead of having different programs to read different document formats, is there a reader that allow me to read ebooks, documents in ALL format? I've seen some comments on Franklin Reader and PeanutPress reader. What format does each reader support?
    Please help. Thanks.
    What is new today will be old tomorrow..

    I use the Peanut Reader. It reads doc files and Peanut Press books. I have found that if it is in another format (ISilo; Tome Reader), I'll wait for it in doc or just forget it (or take it out of the library)

    I encourage you to check out our iambic Reader, found here: http://www.iambic.com/pilot/reader/

    It lets you view doc-formatted Word documents, e-books, text files, web pages (with or without HTML tags) and even HTML tables. It supports color if your device is color-enabled and its interface allows for a lot of user flexibility (scroll speed, ability to move the scroll bar, change the orientation of the page, etc.). You can try it out for free. It might be what you're looking for.

    Thanks!

    I have used QVadis program, which has a companion program for your desktop. It reads .doc files. Try http://www.qvadis.com. I have not shopped around a bunch, so I cannot say it is the best program out there, but I have been quite happy with it.

    Ditto on Qvadis Reader. I've tried many different readers, even freeware, and I've been really happy with Qvadis.

    On the Visor it is very compact at about 40K. You can use preformatted bookmarks, control font, linespacing, scrollspeed, do a search-and-find and lots of other abilities.

    The companion desktop program reads, edits, and converts text files (RTF or TXT and other formats), Web pages (HTML), and I've found it to be an indispensable utility.

    Also, their Website offers a huge and growing collection of DOC-format books, reviews, and Palm news.

    Of course, since this thread started, I began to wonder if I was really satisfied with QVadis or if I was missing out one something, so I looked around and found that the iSilo interface is easier to use the QVadis and (supposedly) the documents are smaller.
    I also somewhat checked out the iambic reader per the suggestion above and thought that it was excellent in that you can read html files, etc.

    Except that it costs money and your picture of the Prism in the upper right hand corner shows the infamous green screen found on every Palm OS device minus the IIIC and Prism. Fix the picture and I'll think about it.
