Bookr 0.7.1 released


An update to one of the best homebrew applications (at least I think so) has been released. Bookr 0.7.1 doesn’t introduce any new features but does fix several bugs. Previously, Bookr had problems loading graphic heavy PDFs but this new release should alleviate some of those problems. Support for CJK fonts in PDF documents has been added as well.

Download Bookr 0.7.1 for 1.00 and 1.50
Download CJK fonts

  • Added support for PDF files with Chinese, Japanese and Korean text.
  • Added a memory usage counter.
  • Added single line scroll for the analog pad in the text viewer.
  • Bookr will now try to block images from loading in PDF files when it is running low on memory.
  • Fixed many memory leaks in the image loader for PDF files. Bookr can load and display PDF files with more images than before.
  • Fixed memory leaks releasing the PDF viewer singleton.
  • Restored full page scroll with cursor buttons.
  • Fixed font corruption for large font sizes in the text viewer.
  • Fixed page positions in the text viewer after changing the font size and/or font rotation. Bookmarks for text files are not compatible with older releases.

    pspman and pal;
    I have the 3.03 system update, but I can’t get bookr to work. What am I doing wrong?
    I am using the 1.50 version of bookr- I have been looking on other sites where people say i need the 3.03 and then the 1.50 update. how does that work?

    best app ever

  17. 17 neil

    It still works great for small pdf files, but if you’re looking at a 50meg pdf I can sometimes get the first slide and then going to the next the psp just turns itself off.

  18. 18 billylee8

    Why does it seem to cut off the last line of text in TXT files? I’m not too thrilled about manually adding two blank lines at the end to compensate, nor am I confident that it’s actually a workaround.

    Still, I do love this app…

  19. 19 kaste

    what`s about a magazine with pics. i´m getting a white page

    can somebody help me

  20. 20 kuz

    does it have rotation? if it doesn’t they should add rotation so the pdfs can be take the whole screen

  21. 21 max

    please read the readme.txt, it’s easier than posting and waiting for a response. if you haven’t used it, use it first before you comment. it is capable of rotating the pdf but its harder to read that way, you can fit the whole page, but the fonts will be too small for someone to read them. for those who can’t find the %_SCE_bookr, i think you may have downloaded the src file. redownload the zip file again.

    The interface is pretty snazzy, i like it a lot
    i just hope it can read acrobat reader version 8′s.
    This is a must download.
    to the makers, I am not worthy.

  23. 23 ftdn2006

    Wow, what a great program. Thanks a lot man. Simply perfect. Just what I needed.

  24. 24 rick

    see app, very good and easy to use. I can only see it getting better with each update. Read the readme you guys…. if you’re not running 1.50 then put both folders in /PSP/GAME150/

    any status on an update for this program? What about a fix for the white screen on pdf’s, and cutting off the last lines of a text file?

  32. 32 YKS

    Anyone managed to get V0.7.1 works on CFW 4.01 M33-2? I think I tried almost everything, like
    -) Copy to GAME, GAME150, GAME4XX directories
    -) Copy 150.PBP, 401.PBP into the folder

    But I still get the 80020148 error message. Anyone managed to overcome this problem?

    Anyone knows whether there are alternative PDF Reader? Thanks.
