Aldiko 3.0 is here!

Today we have something exciting to share with you. We are releasing the Aldiko 3.0, a re-imagined version of the Aldiko Book Reader. The Aldiko 3.0 is built on a modern design, following closely the design guidelines of Holo. It features a whole new user interface, great catalog integration and easy and powerful library organization for users with lots of books. Read on to find out more.

 A Holo-themed design

The Aldiko 3.0 gets a holo-themed makeover, offering a new user experience coinciding with the release of the next generation of Android devices.

Navigation drawer

The navigation drawer is like a control where you can access all the major functions of the app. It stays on the top no matter where you go in the app, enabling you to easily navigate to different main functions of the app from anywhere from the app.

 Easy and powerful library organization

In Aldiko 3.0, we added an ability to swipe left or right to parse through navigation tabs. In your library, you can swipe through the navigation tabs to view your recent reads, your whole library and your recently added books.

All your currently reading books are under the RECENT READS tab. You can check detailed reading statistics (when the book was created, was last read and the reading progress) of your latest reading books.

All your recently added books are under the RECENTLY ADDED tab, organized in the order of added dates.

You can view your entire library in either shelf view or list view like in the previous versions. We added filter feature and additional sorting options for you to quickly find books in your library. Want to check which books are currently being read, which books have been completed or which books have not been started yet? Want to view your books by file types? You can do so swiftly with the newly added filter feature.

You can also organize your library by tags and collections like in the previous version. However, in Aldiko 3.0, we make organizing library even easier by letting you access tags and collections features anywhere in your library.

Want to delete several completed books at once? We added multi-deletion feature in Aldiko 3.0 for you to do so.

In addition, for each book, you can view the book details, your personal reading statistics, table of contents, notes & highlights as well as bookmarks of the book in one place.

Great catalog integration

In Aldiko 3.0, you can browse books in store in a much more visually beautiful way. You can also swipe through the navigation tabs to discover popular titles, best sellers, new releases, free books etc.

Besides that, we added facets/filters feature for your to find your next great read even faster. For example, while you are browsing science fiction books, you can use facets/filters to further narrow down the category, price and language of the science fiction book that you are looking for.

Easily Accessible custom catalog

Custom catalog has been a popular features in Aldiko app already. In Aldiko 3.0, we made this feature accessible much more prominently for you to add your custom catalogs.

Best-in-class mobile reading experience

The highly customizable and clean reading experience in the Aldiko Book Reader is one of the reasons why many of you like the Aldiko app. In Aldiko 3.0, we made it one step further by providing a cleaner and more click reading interface.

Aldiko has already been downloaded over 15 million times and millions of users use it to read books on the go. We’re thrilled to offer you a whole new mobile ebook experience, whether you are using phone or tablet. We will roll out the Aldiko 3.0 to Aldiko Premium users gradually starting from today. We will also release it to free users in the near future. You can download the Aldiko Premium from the Google Play store. We hope you enjoy the new and modern version of Aldiko app.

Happy reading!

    This is a great news for all Aldiko users. But still lacks the Sync functionality.

    Having Catalog and reading status sync across multiple devices would be a really useful feature and makes the use of Aldiko much more pleasurable.

    Very nice update, looking good.

    I use Aldiko Sync and it works fine for syncing across multiple devices, but I would love to see ColorDict integration like the other popular readers.

  • Mike6

    Really don’t like the new Green color scheme in 3.0 hard to see what page I am on.

  • ScottyG

    Is there no way to change the bookshelf & main color from that awful green color? Why is it not brown or even blue? The green color scheme is terrible.

    I’m not thrilled with the black bars surrounding my book covers. In that regard earlier versions were better. Other than that it’s a good update.
