I am looking for a nice ebook reader app for android but it’s proving to be quite difficult. Every app I stumble open misses at least a few things I want. So here is a list of things I want:

-Material You UI

-Custom themes

-Font selection

-Dictionary or translator integration

-Page view (NO scrolling through the book)

A few things that could be nice but not necessary:

-I use Foliate on desktop so a way to sync with that

-Make white parts of the black and white pictures same color as the backgroud.

I think that’s all. I searched a lot but to no avail. Hopefully this community helps me and others. Thank you guys in advance.

    These requirements are really specific. Whites parts of black pictures in particular, I can’t think of anything that implements that.

    Anyway, these probably don’t have everything you want, but I use Librera:

    website: https://librera.mobi/

    Github: https://github.com/foobnix/LibreraReader

    No material you theme, but I know it has font selection, and dictionary/translation integration.

    The website claims it supports custom themings, and CSS. I can find the options in my app, but I haven’t touched them.

    It also supports custom fonts, including user added ones.

    It supports sync between librera instances (Google Drive has first class support), but not with Foliate.

    It defaults to “book mode” which is page

      Bit off-topic…Librera is decent but I hate that I can’t use custom background without changing the opacity. It seems like it doesn’t have the ability to use a background but it rather puts the image on top of the text and then lowers the opacity of the custom image, which doesn’t look nice.
