Something's wrong Great app, but it started glitching when I try to open it last week for some reason.

by A Google User the 8/29/2013

Ok The aesthetic is nice, but Android doesn't recognize Cool Reader as a mobi reader. So since there's no association, you can't open the file unless you open it from CR. Also, doesn't read djvu, which would be nice.

I love it Greatest ever

The best I have tried a lot of other readers on the play market and this one just wins for me. Reads any books I want, easy to use, great features. May not be the prettiest but it is without a doubt the best.
