Lexcycle Announces Support for Adobe eBooks in Stanza Reader

NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2009 — Lexcycle, the company behind the award-winning Stanza electronic book reader for the iPhone and iPod Touch, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Adobe(R) to license PDF and EPUB rendering technologies as well as support for Adobe’s eBook content protection technology. The integrated technology will allow Stanza users to enjoy eBooks sold or loaned by any retailer or library, who distribute eBooks protected with Adobe Content Server 4.

With over 1.3 million users spanning 60 countries, Stanza is the most popular eBook reader for the Apple iPhone. Since its launch in July 2008, Stanza has supported the EPUB format, the International Digital Publishing Forum’s open XML-based standard format for reflowable digital books and publications. To date, Stanza users have downloaded over 3 million eBooks from a selection of over 100,000, half of which are available for free. The license agreement will significantly expand the selection of available titles to Stanza customers to include a wide variety of commercially published eBooks from major publishers.

“Stanza has become the most popular electronic book reader for the iPhone and iPod Touch by providing a great user experience, from the discovery and acquisition of content to the fine-tuned reading experience,” said Neelan Choksi, Chief Operating Officer of Lexcycle. “Licensing Adobe’s content protection technology will allow Stanza users to have a wider selection of eBooks, periodicals, and other content from around the world, secure in the knowledge that the content they purchase is based on open standards.”

“Stanza is a great iPhone application and the addition of Adobe PDF and EPUB with Adobe Content Server compatibility will make Stanza even more compelling,” said Bill McCoy, general manager, Digital Publishing Business at Adobe. “This collaboration is a significant step forward for Adobe’s overall strategy to enable publishers to deliver engaging, high-fidelity reading experiences across a wide range of mobile devices.”

Starting next quarter, Stanza will be able to read EPUB and PDF files secured with Adobe’s content protection technology from Adobe Content Server 4. The EPUB format has gained significant traction among major trade book publishers and industry groups such as the Association of American Publishers (AAP). With the upgrade, Stanza users will be able to purchase or borrow Adobe eBooks from the hundreds of retailers, academic and public libraries who distribute Adobe eBooks worldwide.

Availability
Stanza for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store or from http://www.lexcycle.com. Stanza with support for Adobe DRM will be released in 2Q09.

This information is not

This information is not accurate: accuplacer exam Kindle _format_ can store any Unicode character including Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew etc.; you don't need Topaz for this. It is the Kindle _software_ that does not support these languages. In particular the default fonts do not contain non-Latin acsm exam alphabets/glyphs for the most part (with exception of Greek). It is possible to replace the font so that more scripts can be displayed; I've done this on my Kindle so I can read Russian text that I've converted to Kindle format. So a relatively simple software update could improve some language support without impacting performance act exam significantly (certainly for Cyrillic-based languages). It might require hardware enhancements to accommodate full requirements of 'world-readiness' since full-Unicode, bidi and complex script support require more code, hence more storage if not a more powerful processor. I haven't used the Kindle iPhone app, but it seems likely that it aepa exam provides more expansive language support than Kindle since it is sold in Asian markets. So if the target device is iPhone/iPodTouch, Russian/Chinese/Japanese may actually work out.

Stanza App Banned in iTunes Romania

I just discovered Stanza and as a publication designer based in New York City, I look forward to using it with my web and print clients. I was just talking about Stanza to a designer I know in Romania who has an iPod Touch. When he tried to get Stanza, the iTunes store said that iTunes Store Romania does not carry this app. I forget the exact wording. Maybe he is the one who used the word "banned." But the Kindle app was also not available.
I tried a Google search but could not find anything about this. Do you know why Stanza is not available there? I wonder about other countries. You say here that Stanza is available in 60 countries.

In my opinion this problem

In my opinion this problem exists for only one reason - Stanza try to promote this product in the most developed countries, and don't care of the others. Actually it is not the best opinion they could have, as such world leading brands should be everywhere.

Clarification

At this point in time, we are not supporting the Adobe DRM solution. This decision will be evaluated on a regular basis as we move forward.

We will continue to support DRM-free EPUB formatted books as well as DRM-free and DRM-enabled eReader (PDB) formatted books.

This is misleading in my opinion

"Starting next quarter, Stanza will be able to read EPUB and PDF files secured with Adobe’s content protection technology from Adobe Content Server 4."
That quarter is long gone and this did not happen. With all due respect, I believe this page needs to carry a notice telling readers that Stanza does not read epub drm protected books because if you search for those terms on google you get this page high up in the results. People may be buying epub books only to find they cannot read them. I nearly did.

More than misleading. It is downright wrong

I want to point out that this article is a fabrication and should be removed. I am one of those people that have bought Adobe DRM epub books to read in stanza on my iphone, to find I can't. What a waste of money. Sort it out and take down this publication.

Excellent blog post, I look
