FBReader is the best independent epub and mobi reader for iOS

The most prominent feature of FBReader for iOS is the support for both epub and mobi file format.

Many users prefer independent book-reading apps over the ones offered by giant ebook platforms such as Apple or Google.

There are lots of book apps offered by independent developers. For a long time, Marvin and Gerty were our favorites, but they have not been developed since 2017.

Also, there is still no Anybooks app for iOS, therefore former Android users may start looking around for other familiar solutions.

Right now, FBReader is by far the best independent book reader for iPad and iPhone. One of the most popular book-reading apps in the Google Play Store, it has been available for iOS devices since 2017.

The most prominent feature of FBReader for iOS is the support for both epub and mobi file format. As you may know, mobi is the format used by Kindle ecosystem, while most other ebook platforms use epub.

Compared to Android version, the iOS app is missing a few features, but it’s still the easiest and most familiar book-reading environment for users who have just switched from Android tablets and smartphones.

The app syncs your bookmarks and reading positions with FBReader cloud, offers several customization options, and is one of few iOS book apps that respect a system light/dark setting.
