A Book Reader for All!

WHAT IS IT?

Our Reader component is a multi-format supporting reader which fully supports ePUB3 standard as well as ePUB2 and PDF.

Access your books anywhere, anytime, Online or Offline, and on any device. Just download them from the Drive and read them wherever you go.

With synchronized table of content, navigate to any location in the book through the TOC.  In the same way, see where in the TOC you are at any time.

If you quit reading from one device and starts reading from another device, the last location will be available when reading is restarted. Reading history is also available for Videos and Audios and you can continue from the location you last were.

The Reader can be used to store the readership statistics in a fine detailed granularity. This will help policy makers and publishers to know the market better and have a right and meaningful plan for it.

WHO IS IT FOR?

PUBNiTO Reader is built for anyone who wishes to have a versatile book and content reader which works on all types of devices and all platforms.

Text book publishers and specially those in K12 publishing, Ministries of Education with centralized text book publishing, or even a teacher who prepares his or her course ware can use it to deliver their enriched text books to teachers ans students.

Publishers and specially indie publishers may now have a book reader which can be branded under their own name.

WHAT IS BEHIND IT?

Readium

Readium is a robust, performant, spec-compliant ePUB reading system that can be deployed in browsers, embedded into browser apps like the Google Chrome extension or simply embedded as an SDK into native applications.
We adopted both fully functional Readium SDK and JS viewer and added extra features such as annotations, bookmarks and reading progression level and also localized and customized it to fully support RTL languages, styles and fonts.

ePUB3

The Reader supports PDF as well as the industry standard adaptive layout EPUB3 file format, which is optimal for an immersive reading experience on mobile devices.

This gives plenty of possibilities, including:

  • Audio, Video
  • Interactivity
  • Global Language Support
  • Multi-Column Layout
  • Hyphenation
  • And much more

Fully supports all languages. Currently PUBNiTO is unique in supporting Right to Left languages such as Arabic and Persian. Also, it fully supports true mathematical formulas in any direction and any language.

Central Annotation Services

Users can create bookmarks anywhere in the books. The bookmarks are stored in a central server. This makes them available on any device, anywhere.
