Open and read documents and eBook files on multiple platforms by identifying compatible elements with the reader and processing them to compress the text by 50 to 60 percent for reading and visualization. Bookmarking, adding annotations and hyperlinks are possible.

Today, most people prefer to read on their computers and this is why many books and documents have been issued in digital format. Anyway, in order to be able to read them you will need an application like iSilo.

With iSilo you will be able to read e-books in the PDB format and TXT files. This application embeds many handy features such as support for hyperlinks, tables or formatted texts, thus making your reading experience as enjoyable as possible.

What I like about iSilo is that this program is as convenient as it can be. It allows you to mark locations and add bookmarks so that you can quickly go back to any fragment that you want. Another useful function that the application offers is the auto scroll option.

Probably the only aspect which I didn’t like about iSilo is that, although the interface of the program is pretty easy to operate, it’s also a bit dull. You can only customize the fonts that it uses and the colors of the background and the text.

To summarize, iSilo is a decent application that is worth trying out. Despite the fact that it’s still a little rough around the edges, this application is reliable and affordable, so it could prove to be a good solution.
