Mac ePub Reader

Whether you're a longtime digital book reader or you've just bought your first ePub and you're on a quest for the best ePub reader for Mac, you've come to the right place. Neat Reader is a cross-platform application and web app that works on all your devices, whether you're on a Mac or Windows machine, and it even works on Apple or Android phones or any device that has a full-featured web browser.

On a Mac, ePub readers are a dime a dozen. There's Apple Books, which comes preinstalled on modern Macs, but its features are fairly limited and it only works on devices made by Apple, which can be problematic if you have an Android phone or another device that is outside of the Apple ecosystem. If you also sometimes use a Windows computer or a terminal at school, the library or at work, however, you won't be able to share your reading across devices.

Furthermore, ePub files have a lot of neat little features, such as bookmarking, note taking, color and font changing and more, which means that with the default Mac ePub reader you'll be missing out on some important features that could help you get more reading done whenever you have a minute, especially if you use a lot of different devices.

Newer ePub versions are also filled with advanced technology such as HTML and CSS, in addition to SVG images that scale with your display, enabling more intricate charts and diagrams like you'd find in MathML publications. If your Mac ePub reader doesn't support these more recent protocols, you could be missing valuable information and functionality that enables you to get the most out of your ePub books.

With Neat Reader, we've got your back. All the latest and greatest ePub technology works flawlessly in our application, and because Neat Reader works on any device you own or have access to, you can sync bookmarks, notes and even your entire library in the cloud without having to bring your files with you or digging for that important bookmark, note or highlight. Neat Reader does it all, from Mac to PC -- from Android to iOS, and the clean and seamless interface means you can get right to reading without stumbling through confusing menus and screens that seem to do anything but get out of the way and let you read.

The best part is that Neat Reader is absolutely free, and you can download the Mac ePub reader version of our app right now and start reading your ePub files in just a few minutes. It works on all Macs running MacOS 10.8 or above, and you can also download the app to your iOS or Android smartphone for on-the-go reading.

If you'd rather not download a piece of software or if you're on a public computer, the Neat Reader web app provides all the great features of our downloadable apps on any modern web browser, such as Chrome, Safari, New Edge and Firefox 57+, giving you another way to have a Mac ePub reader when you're not at home.

Since the format of mobi and azw3 is very similar to EPUB, the book files after transcoding can be kept basically the same.

Erwin Lee

Great alternative for iBook if you use Android phones. I used to use iPhone, and iBook is my daily ereader app, after switching to Android phone, I found it really hard to sync reading data between my Macbook and my new phone. Then Neat Reader comes into my eye, it works perfectly. I just wish you guys can polish it, making it better than iBooks.
