Best app for Android to read .txt files!

Certainly one of the best free EPUB/MOBI readers

Positive Comment by Gurudev1000
about Cool Reader Jul 2013

I agree, this software is not perfect, but it's one of the best readers out there for EPUB/MOBI filetypes. It's a bit slow in opening files, resizing windows, etc. but once it does that, browsing through pages is a breeze. Add to that the customizability of the look for the fonts that works so beautifully.

Suggestion: The table of contents doesn't work/appear. The makers need to have their own website instead of just relying on sourceforge.
