I'm delighted that an App has been developed to allow international purchasing of new books in French for the iPad.
Setting up your accounts for the App and the on-line bookstore (ePagine)can be a bit confusing. I finally had to request help from Eden Reader Support. They responded immediately and solved my problem. I'm very impressed with their quick response.
The developer also let me know that you cannot yet download samples of the books directly on your iPad. Thus, if you tap on a book sample, nothing happens! An alternative is to download the sample to your computer and transfer it to iTunes. The sample can then be read in iBooks. When buying a book you can apparently download it directly to the iPad (haven't tried that yet) or download it to your computer and it will then open in the Eden Reader.
The Reader itself is perfectly serviceable but lacks a couple of things. You can't change the font size or brightness of the screen. Book selection in the on-line bookstore is still limited but I imagine the selection will grow.
Overall I'm very pleased with the App.
