Ibis Reader, developed by Threepress Consulting Inc., uses the ePub file format, the Open Publication Distribution System (OPDS), and the HTML5 standard to deliver books to readers on advanced smartphones and any web browser.
All design decisions have been made with the needs of the consumer in mind: there’s no DRM on any purchase, and Ibis offers a high-quality online and offline reading experience, as well as the the benefits of cloud-based storage for easy syncing and backup.
Publishers who are ready to explore the open ecosystem of books are encouraged to attend.
