Ehon is a digital comic book, manga and ebook management program for Mac OS X. Extremely intuitive, it simplifies digital library management and lets users focus on what really matters, their books. Users can painlessly import all of their digital comics and ebooks and let Ehon do all the work. Ehon will import all of the major ebook and comic file formats, as long as they are not DRM protected, epub, PDF, CBR/RAR, CBZ/ZIP and even image folders.

When it comes to managing a large number of elements, a well thought user interface really matters and Ehon has been specifically thought to make things really easy. This highly more...

I really liked this app. Was my favorite comic manager for the Mac. Is the app really gone though? I can't find it in the app store and their website appears to be down.

While Ehon DOES appear to be discontinued, I found a working copy ov Ehon v1.0.1 available at...
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/Ehon.shtml

Perhaps the MacUpdate DL link could be adjusted to point there OR (better yet) Ehon could be added to MU's direct DL library?

Hope that helps! ;)

Thanks Aadams! The only issue with the non-Appstore download is that it's wanting registration. Hopefully demo mode isn't timed and I can continue to use Ehon as I've always had.

Seriously though, I really appreciate the link and I can finally stop using folders and Preview. I can't thank you enough for that.

OK, so the below link DOES work but delivers a registrable DEMO version. I now have a copy of the FREE version that was released on the App Store by the developer after Ehon was discontinued and I'm going to try ULing it for inclusion here on MU...

Right on! You are quite very welcome! I am going to e-mail a copy of the FULL Freeware version of v1.0.1 to BOTH MacUpdate and to OldApps.com...and hopefully one or both will get "picked-up".

I'll post back here when I get a response.

in short, the new version available here for free comes with it's own license; there is no action to do.

I think, this app is really great. But it seems like developer abandoned it. Hope that I am wrong.

When I wrote my previous comment, app's website didn't work. But now it works, and it's great. Ehon is the really cool app with great perspectives.

The program is awesome.. only a few features are missing like panning with the keyboard and slightly better sort options for the pages.
I read Mangas in it and the program does a really great job! It feels good you can edit alot of additional Information about the Book or Manga and the program even recognizes when you move the Book / Mange into another Finder Folder like iTunes does!
I have absolutely no problems with adding the Mangas since the program seems to support a lot of different ways to do.

I think there is a good chance the missing features are going to be added. And if you have any other suggestions you really should let the developer know and write a suggestion on their support page.

Nice, I am a reader and I have a Mac, but since when a program like this has to be 64 bits only!? I guess this program will use more than 4GB of RAM, gosh, one less buyer for you!

Although some much-needed features are missing at present, I have my eye set on Ehon becoming the de facto standard for comic and manga management on the Mac. The user interface is headed in the right direction and needs just a bit of polish -- especially for those of us who favor our keyboards, not mice. Entering data is tedious if one attempts to use the Tab and arrow keys to move between fields; it seems clear that the developer intended users to take their hands off the keyboard and put them on their mice to move the cursor a mere 10 pixels and click, then repeat every 10 seconds. This is the largest problem with Ehon (this and tag entry), and it must be fixed.

Instead of nitpicking on the other problems, though, I will say that I finally found a desktop app that rivals the best of the iPad apps I have been using. For those who read mobile manga, you know that most iOS manga apps are so-so, but a couple are very good. This app is very good other than the polishing and added features it is.

To the developer: I would be happy to give you more feedback if you let me know you're interested.

This application looks very promising. At this point in time it is already quite complete in both features and cosmetics. Performance wise, Ehon does an excellent job as well. The interface is very refined and a pleasure to work with.

Till now I had been using ComicBookLover, which is pretty good as well, but which misses the refinement, performance and stability of Ehon. CBL does on the other hand have an alpha of their iPad interface up and running.

So the main thing that I miss in Ehon is the possibility to link it with an iPad. I would love to see that capability added, using the already built-in 'sharing' capability of Ehon. My comic collection resides on my Mac, and I read comics on the Mac, but I also want to be able to read them on the iPad, in my sofa.

If you're looking for a way to catalogue your ebooks this is a really nice choice. I've tested it with quite a few formats in my collection and so far Ehon has handled them all without a hiccup. It inserts as much information from the file as it is able to and allows you to edit All the information. It has integrated readers for the formats as well, so you can read right with in the application. Finally it has a really attractive interface. It really does look good and keeps within the 'Mac' look and feel. It is quite quick in its imports and does a good job as far as I can see. There are other apps that can do this, and may have even more options, but they're slower and more complex (and not as good looking!). For my needs, Ehon fits the bill very nicely.
