Moon+ Reader for #Android – Your #ebook #reader for best experience on #dellstreak

Posted by Sanjay on January 25, 2011

I love reading books and since my phone is always with me I prefer reading on it rather than carrying a dedicated ebook reader such as a nook or kindle. I have a Dell Streak which has a 5″ inch screen so that really helps.

I have tried a lot of ebook readers on android – kindle, aldiko, fbreader, kobo and a few others. Each has its own sets of features and problems. Let me not go into those.

I have finally settled on Moon+ reader. The best thing I like about it is that it can read a wide variety of formats. The most common ones that I use regularly are TXT, HTML and EPUB. Not many of the readers that I have mentioned above can do all formats. I have a pre-existing collection of ebooks so I dont really download much directly from the internet book stores.

Moon+ reader is fast, it does not consume much resources and its user interface while reading is really good. It can be customized a lot and it also has an option to enable page-turning animations the kind that you get in the iphone stanza app. I have not seen these animations in any other android ebook reader app that I have used so far. The other good thing about this app is that you could start reading directly from a file; you do not have to import books from a particular location on your sd card to be able to read. I find this important because importing books into particular apps tends to create duplication of files and an unnecessary waste of resources. It has all the standard features which are available in ebook reader apps.

So I recommend that you try this one if you like reading books and if you have a android handset with a decent amount of screen real estate. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

MIUI Digital Weather Clock comes out of ROM and hits the Market

Posted by Sanjay on January 4, 2011

I’ve used the MIUI ROM and I have to say that it is one of the best implementations of Android out there. The degree to which this ROM has been tweaked and customized is awesome. This clock widget is at par with beautiful widgets which is what I currently use but it is a paid app. Try this out if you want something thats just as good but for free.

The MIUI ROM is a very successful ROM from China. Just a few weeks ago we brought you coverage on the MIUI Music application getting ported out to all devices. Today we find out that the MIUI Digital Weather Clock Widget has now also been released for all devices. This time though, it is available in the Android Market for you to enjoy for free.


As you can see, the widget looks pretty similar to some of the customizations that can be found for Beautiful Widgets. I still think it is unique enough to warrant a look though. Especially if you don’t have the paid Beautiful Widgets application, this would give you a nice new weather clock for FREE.

Click or Scan the QRCode below to find out more information about the MIUI Digital Weather Clock  application.

Summary and Downloads:

Application: MIUI Digital Weather Clock

Developer: Factory Widgets

Cost: FREE
