New poll: Which is your preferred ebook reader?
Authored by: fud on Sep 12, '12 02:26:56PM

I've used iBooks for reading technical pdf's on my iPhone and have been impressed how well it works.

The Kindle app for the iPhone [and Mac] works ok for novels, but is frustrating for non-fiction where you're more likely to jump around. iBooks makes it easier to know which chapter or section you're in while reading by showing chapters when moving the page slider and putting location numbers in the Table of Contents [epub]. Not so with the Kindle software.

Also, the Kindle uses Full Justification creating uneven word spacing, iBooks uses Flush Left, which I prefer.

I've had pagination problems with the Kindle software, where touching a line in the Table of Contents would miss the page.

Now if Apple would at least put iBooks on the Mac.
