Likebook Plus file system issue

I started having problems with file managers either the stock one or any alternative. All of them are being closed immediately after starting. And if I try to open any book with an app like Cool Reader, it crashes as well. Any idea how to fix this? Tried to factory reset the device to no avail.

Boyue Likebook Mimas (T103D) 10.3': Two Problems

Hello! Received my Likebook yesterday. Two issues. First, the thing is reading the time settings 12 hours off. As such, it being now 09:23, it's reading 21:23. In 12 hours, it will show 21:23, when it will be actually 09:23. Wifi is connected. I see no settings dealing with the clock. Second, dealing with the Apps. When I select Apps at the Home position, all that comes up is a list of the wifi scans. Yesterday I was able to find a list of the 11 apps available, but the process of arri...

Help importing covers automatically

I was wondering is there an option to auto import covers to books. I used to have the app and there was a simple option where it would scan for covers instead of having to do it one by one. I love the app and really wish there was a guide the f&q qre of no help. Also if i have to change the cover on my own how do i do that? I am using the pro version on a s9 galaxy. Thanks for any help

Moon+ Pro on Kindle?

Hi there! I'm currently reading my books using Moon+ on my smart phone and on an older Icarus eReader device. The Icarus' screen has gotten some weird artifacts, so I'm considering buying something new. I recently discovered Calibre, and migrated all my books from Google Play and Amazon to epubs, which I read using Moon+ (since that was the first app I found that advertised that they had reading statistics). As I love statistics, I've made a system for aggregating reading data from the Moon+ ...

Dictionaries in Kindle on Android device

I am reading Spanish books in Kindle app. version on an Android tablet running version 7.0. I have bought a Collins Spanish-English dictionary which works fine on my Kindle device, but when I downloaded it from my library onto the tablet it was classified as a book and not a dictionary. I have looked for instructions to set it as the Spanish dictionary, but they refer to the Languages and Dictionaries option in Settings. I don't have the option - only Language Learning then Word wise...

Cool Reader - Still Broken

Posted an issue last month whereby I keep getting this error with Cool Reader: "“Font "Roboto" isn’t compatible with language “en-US”. Instead will be used fallback font.” As mentioned, this issue occurs with all fonts. Was advised the issue was fixed. Nope. It's not, at least for me. Uninstalled/reinstalled via Googe Play. Nope. So I tried forcing close, clearing cache, uninstalling and reinstalling. Twice. Same problem. My version is shown as the latest (3.2.29-1), but still the problem pe...

How to display book cover images on android e-reader device?

Likebook Mars - changing default dictionary

Hi: I use the Kindle app for reading my mobi format books since I find it suits my needs more than some of the other reading apps I have tried, including the Mars default reader. However, one thing that I find very frustrating is that I can't change the default dictionary. Whenever I long press a word to get the meaning it always goes to the default dictionary for that language (eg el Diccionario de la lengua española). When I select the Change Dictionary option I can change to the dictionar...

Likebook Muses

Hello, Its my first post here. I have just received my first eInk device Likebook Muses There is no section for it probably we need one? Or it is very similar to Mimas?

Likebook Mars Screen Size Question

Hello: I'm having trouble to find an on-line vendor that delivers screen protectors for Likebook Mars to Chile. So, I'm looking for 7.8" alternatives, such as this Pocketbook Inkpad 3 screen protector from Aliexpress. As the film is made to fit exactly the Inkpad 3's screen, I'm trying to find out if (beyond the 7.8" specification) this product could also do for the Likebook Mars screen. Awaiting your kind reply, [INCANUS]

Updated my old Nexus 7 to Android 8.1

Thought I would just share my experience in case it's of interest to anyone. Today, after a few trials and tribulations, I managed to take my old Google Nexus 7 2013 (wifi) and flash a custom ROM to update to Android 8.1 Oreo. After getting it done, it was like having a brand new tablet except that now, I could skip all the Google apps and just install the readers, browser, and apps that I want. Installing the custom ROM also yields better battery life, and more control over the UI. Basic sp...

Has anybody else tried eBoox?

So far I'm loving eBoox new app. So clean and fresh. Things transfer over quickly and you can have the option of scrolling instead of the usual option. Nice change from the Kobo app which I found clunky and awkward.

Cool Reader Font Warning after update

No issues with Cool Reader for a few years, until I updated it last night. Now whenever I start the app, return from the Options settings, or switch between day/night, I get the following warning: “Font "Roboto" isn’t compatible with language “en-US”. Instead will be used fallback font.” Tried ALL the Cool Reader fonts with the same results. No difference between the CSS being enabled or not either. Has anyone got any ideas as to cause or solution? Using Android 4.2.2 on an Asus tablet.

Moon+ Reader Pro - issues...

What are the best resources for learning how to use Moon+ Reader Pro more effectively? Is there a user guide or support forum. I was using FBReader for years and really liked it. But with a large library of over 1000+ books the library function FBReader Pro failed miserably-- I suspect it couldn't handle the covers. It was glacially slow. So I switched to Moon+ Reader Pro. It can handle the library fine--fast and smooth. However, I'm finding the interface to be very "clunky" and difficult to u...

Likebook Mars battery life for e-book reading

Hello: Could you please comment on your current experience, that is, the Likebook Mars battery life for e-book reading? Any input is welcomed... as long as is based on experience, not hearsay or on-line literature. I'm seriously considering buying this device and the battery aspect of it (on airplane mode, of course, and using it mainly as an app enabled reader) is rather of consequence. Awaiting your kind reply, [INCANUS]

New Likebook Mars only connects to open wifi

Hello everybody, I have just purchased a new Likebook Mars from the „Likebook official Store“ on Amazon. I cannot get the Mars to connect to any password protected wifi. After entering the wifi password, it shortly says „saved“ under the network name, but is immediately dropping the connection. It repeatedly tries to reconnect and disconnects right away. I have - a different router, - my neighbours network and even - a mobile hotspot, in between I had it forget all known networks. ...

How to highlight in Moon+Reader without pop up menu?

I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer to this and I didn't find a ready answer on their site (well, they really don't have any meaningful guide at all that I could find). I use the "select text" feature almost exclusively for highlighting text (later to copy into notes). I can do this, and have configured it to do so on a long press. But that time-saving feature is of little merit since no matter what I do, there is no quick way to just select the text, apply the highlight and conti...

Japanese Dictionary for Likebook Mars not really working

I added JMDict ja-en and JEDict ja-en from to my ereader. The problem is that it only seem to show the definition for a single character. If I somehow manage to select multiple characters (which is practically impossible to do) it will not show the definition for any. Is there any way to make it recognize multiple characters?
