Great EPUB reader. Since Edge no longer supports epub, I have been looking for suitable alternatives. Neat Reader should be ranked much much higher, other epub viewers are just toys. For the first time, I think Google should re-evalute their way of ranking pages.

It is great to see such a good and free ePub file reader for Windows 10. I have been using Calibre to read my eBooks for couple of years, but the lack of annotation and cloud synchronization frustrated me. I am glad you guys build this ePub reader for PC, it is really amazing.

My workstation is very old, it is still running Windows 7. When I searched "how to open epub files on windows", most of the pages told me to install apps from Windows Store, which I can not do. I almost gave up finding ePub file reader for Windows 7, then I found Neat Reader. This app really amazed me, thank you guys for supporting Windows 7.

Thanks for developing this easy to use ePub opener, I have tried a lot of epub program, most of them are awkward or hard to use. This one clearly stands out.
