Ionic E-Book Reader – A free EPUB Reader App for Symbian^3/Anna/Belle Mobiles

Ionic Reader is a new ePUB e-book reader app for Symbian^3 phones. I have already written a comprehensive post enlisting almost all Symbian^3 E-Book reader apps. Ionic E-Book Reader is the 12th member of that list and I must say, it impressed me with its modern (fluid) interface and feature set. Currently it supports only ePub e-books which is the most popular e-Book format worldwide and a huge number of EPUB e-books are available free online. Here are the main features of Ionic Reader

Easy Navigation – you can use Volume Up/Down keys/swipe down/soft keys at toolbar to turn pages (however there is no “Go to page” and Swipe left/right option). You can also jump to Bookmarks or Chapters via toolbar options

Zoom level can be adjusted via Menu/Settings (no pinch-to-zoom support however)

Easy bookmarking with Star button at the toolbar – notes can be added to bookmarks for easy recall

Supports portrait/landscape rotation including the option to lock screen in any orientation

A good “library” menu where all the downloaded e-books are shown and new books can also be downloaded via the links provided (Project Gutenberg, Manybooks, Smashwords, Feedbooks, epubBooks etc). Besides Ionic can also search and add ePub e-Books present in the phone via “Import” option

You can select any of the three themes – Day, Night and Sand for comfortable reading

Ionic is an open source (free) application released under GNU General Public License. Download it free from here (for all Symbian^3/Anna/Belle phones – Nokia 500, 603, 701, 808 PureView, N8, C6-01, C7, E6, E7, X7 etc). If you frequently read e-books on your Symbian phone then you would definitely like Ionic E-Book Reader.
