Now, if only I could use my own fonts instead of being forced to use the few in the fonts list.

I have used Clearview for YEARS and it is my favorite reader on my Mac! It does not try to own my books like damned iBooks, which hides and encrypts books I bought elsewhere, (I believe this is theft as I am unable to recover them). Not so with Clearview - It lets me organize my books as I see fit and works with all but those inflicted with DRM. It works with PDF, ePub, MOBI, and CHM, which equals or exceeds any reader I am aware of. Clearview does have a a few oddities I'd like improved; more fonts, easier navigation within folders, but I consider it a great find. I was very happy to see this update as I was also afraid this program had been abandoned. I looked up the authors web site and it is Japanese only, which seemed a little unusual considering he is marketing in the US, The update reassured me that the program has a future.

Favorite reader, hands down. Handles epub, mobi, pdf, and more. One reader for all major formats. Thanks for the update! I was afraid this app had been abandoned.

I like how it has its own library, which BTW does not need to copy into a separate library, like iBooks. I think it has some chinks in its armor, and have written the developer, but no response yet. I'm going back and forth right now between Clearview and Murasaki Pro, and might just use both of them without making this some kind of a contest. My hopes are that, since it has a browser feel, it would be able to have a hot-key to shift between tabs. It can be clunky to load up sometimes, but hasn't crashed. It has a good text search engine in reading mode, and the library function can search for title, author. I can edit the book metadata if needed, I was using Murasaki Free for research papers, and it'd been accepted so far for citation. Good app - just wish the developer would respond. 我也用中文给他写信。。。

This app is just fantastic. I am looking for an iOS and windows version if the app developer decides to support those platforms too. The annotation feature is the star attraction.

Clearview proved better than iBooks in a number of ways: consistent window size, only one place to read ePUBs and PDFs, organized UI, and tabs.

Better than Kindle and iBooks! (Only the font looks a tiny bit less sharp.)

Over time, the developer has built this versatile e-book reader into a really solid piece of software. It has been my default reader for the past year.

WTF, have you not tested this update under 10.7.5! It crashes opening any epub file that the previous version could open. Oh and I lost all my notes/hilighting too! the epubs listed won't open either. If you can't /won't fix, than please give me my money back. Sorry I did the update.
