App Store Description

Booklover is a highly-responsive, robust eBook reader with a rich user interface.

The metadata-driven library management makes it easy to find and enjoy a large number of books in PDF, ZIP/CBZ, RAR/CBR formats.

In the library, you can organize your books by genres, arrange them in order using various bibliographic information such as title, author, publisher, and more.

With the search field and the powerful Library Navigator, you can quickly locate a book from among thousands in your library.

Customize your reading experience with various settings for each book, including page layout, transition axis/style, trimming, filters, progress direction, and more.

Seamlessly integrated with iCloud Drive, books in the iCloud Drive/Booklover folder automatically appear in the app's library and can be cached on-demand.

Booklover automatically extracts metadata from file names or PDFs, and also allows in-app manual edits as needed.

We're dedicated to creating a digital reader that enhances your reading experience in the modern era.
