(from the developer) This beta version doesn't work if installed on the Storage Card. If you've installed it there, try doing an UnInstall (from ActiveSync or the mobile's control panel), and then re-install into internal memory. Should work ok then. The release version (in a couple of weeks I hope) will work fine when installed on storage card. Thanks for trying the software. Jim

(from the developer) You can also get the TypeLoadException error if you install the program on a non-English-localised device. The 'beta 0.9' version needs to be installed in a folder called /Program Files/Freda, and for non-English installations that might no work. I will fix in version 1.0 Cheers, Jim

thanks, it works when installed on device memory. what if i want to read pdf format files with freda. Is there a way to do so , a free converter or something like that...

6:17 am

Fri 13 Nov

Jim Chapman wrote...

To read PDF files, your best bet is to convert them to HTML first (just Google for \'pdf to html converter\'). I\'m unlikely to implement the reading of PDF files, because PDF is not really designed for ebooks - to render PDF properly, you really need a screen that can represent something the same size and shape as a sheet of A4 paper, and PDA screens just aren\'t like that. Anyway, ePub is the format of the future. For the same reason, I probably won\'t add RTF-reading either - it would add significantly to the size of the program, and all for the sake of supporting a format that I think will go out of fashion. Of course, since I am releasing the source code under the GPL, you (or any c# programmer you can persuade to do it) are free to implement PDF or RTF decoding! Thanks for trying the beta version - and look out for the release version in a couple of weeks. Jim

The typeLoadException workaround worked nicely, thanks. I hope you\'ll include a bold fonts option soon. I also noticed that when you change the font size, you don\'t stay on the spot you were just reading, but have to claw your way back :) And would it be possible to include a toggle switch for the tap menu ? Right now it pops up almost every time I try to slide to the next page; slightly annoying that is... And please include an option to resume where you left off on startup. Great work so far !

Either it is not signed with a trusted certificate, or one of its components cannot be found. If the problem persists, try reinstalling or restoring this file.\" i\'ve tried reinstalling it and uninstalling it and it still shows up in my all programs list.

Jim Chapman wrote...

Hi pezuzaine, it sounds like the Freda.exe file has *already* been deleted from your phone, and that is why the menu item is giving that error (which actually means \'missing program file\'). So what you need to do is to delete the Freda link from your menu. I don\'t have the same model phone as you, so I am not sure of the procedure you need, but you could try this: use a file explorer program to find the folder \\Windows\\Start Menu\\Programs\\ then in that folder look for the file called \'Freda.lnk\' and delete it.

Strange - I am having no problems with the Gutenberg files for Mark Twain and Shakespeare works. Most likely issue is your device running out of storage/memory space - can you check that point. Otherwise, please send me your \'logfile.txt\' file (it will be in whatever folder you installed Freda is - probably \\Program Files\\Freda\\). And please send me the epub files too, or links to them. My email is home(at) Thanks.

Hello Jim, This is just brilliant, thank you. Two things I'm missing though is the option to switch page orientations, and have use a font as bold. I prefer to read landscape, rather than portrait. Bold makes the letters more readable, especially on a backlit device.

Auto-rotate with G-Sensor is supported. You just have to put \"Freda\" onto the G-Sensor whitelist. I don\'t do that by default because I personally find it doesn\'t do what I want (I often want to read in portrait mode, while lying down on my side). As for \'pinch to zoom\' - no, I don\'t support it. You can zoom into images by tapping on them, and for other elements, you just have to select the font size you like; zoom would be redundant (also it would be incompatible with every device except HD2).

Books are EPUB files (that is, files with names ending \".epub\"). If you put an EPUB file into the \\my documents\\freda ebooks\\ folder on your phone, it will appear on Freda\'s Library screen. You can find EPUB files at FeedBooks, the Gutenberg Project and other places on the net. Jim

The problem with mdict is that, as I understand it, there isn\'t an easy way to find out what is the path to the mdict program (whereas for SlovoEd the path is kept in a Registry key). So I\'d need to create a mechanism whereby the user can tell Freda where to find mdict, and deal with the various error cases around that. I guess I\'ll get round to it some time ... Jim

Mooshbool wrote...

Hi Jim, I don\'t think referring directly to Mdict exe file would help. Mdict has a pop-up mode that when you select a word in almost any program and click on the pop-up icon near the start menu it automatically shows the translation of the world and pronounce it. If you can manage somehow that by clicking on a word, in Freda, the process of the selecting the word and clicking on Mdict\'s pop-up icon be done automatically, it could be done. Or you can make Freda to use a built in dictionary engine, like \"Haali Reader\", that had been the best e-book reader I\'d used on PPC so far. (the best ebook reader that I\'d seen on any hand-held was \"Palmfiction\" on Palm Os, combined with \"ZDIC\" dictionary)

Like it says in the manual: if you set up a folder for Freda to keep its temporary files in, don\'t keep any non-Freda files in that folder. When it clears temp files, Freda just deletes every folder in that directory; it does not make any effort to work out whether any particular file belongs to it.

Regarding books purchased in on-line stores, Freda can only read DRM-free EPUBs. Most on-line stores supply EPUBS that are encrypted with DRM, and Freda can\'t open those. There are technical tricks you can use for removing DRM-encryption from EPUBs, but it probably isn\'t appropriate for me to say more than \"search the internet\"! It may help you to know that the DRM-encypryption system is called ADEPT.

To get out of a book while reading it, use a long tap (tap-and-hold) or press the \'action\' key. You can, by customising the \'tap action\' setting, make a short-tap also work for leaving the book, but by default the short-tap does nothing if used while a book is loaded. To get books, you can: 1) copy book files into some folder on your phone using ActiveSync, then do Library>Add Folder to put the contents of the folder into Freda\'s library. 2) use Library>Add OPDS Catalog to navigate around an on-line book catalog, and once you have found some book(s) you like, use the Add action button. After either (1) or (2), you can use the Library shortcut to select a book to open and read.

Jim, It's not a huge problem. The only stuff not displaying properly seems to be the em-dash and some foreign language characters. Great app.

Love the app, have read a few books with it. What I am missing is an info about book status in bookshelf, f.e. reading finished or percentage to know where I am in the book.

Good program, but not without problems. The biggest problem by far is that it forces fullscreen, which is really stupid because WM6.5 does a horrible job with programs that do that. The taskbar keeps appearing, covering up the first line of text. I set the border to max and it still wasn't enough to get the text out from under the taskbar.

looks like a nice program, however I do not get it working on my device (B7610). First tries to clear memory, then kicks me out of the programme. Also after a fresh restart and freeing up memory.

@Punisher: to avoid wasting your time, download the .Net Compact Framework V3.5 (like is says in the manual) @Tommy, @Tekoa, @Marj: email me at, with some more details of what is happening, and I will try to help. @Jamie: Take a look at for discussions about where to find books. is perhaps the most popular place.

Brilliant app that has loads of features. can upload your own books as well. A must for HTC HD2 Owners due to the huge 4.3 inch screen reading is even better. to learn how to use app properly go onto youtube and search freda guide.
