Hi i just developed an epub format ebook (containing a video and a javascript animation).It is working fine on iphone/ipad (running on ibooks)..I was wondering if I could read the same ebook with an Android phone/tablet ?

Might keep an eye on this thread to see if anyone answers there. – SaintWacko Mar 28 '12 at 18:55

From Android Play Store, you can use ASTRI-Bee (full version):

  1. Support for epub3 ebooks, e.g. the RTL epub books which is generally not available for reading in most of the epub readers but a basic feature of epub3 ebooks, also javascript within epub ebooks is enabled. Also support pdf, txt, html formatted ebooks.
  2. Support for audio and video content within the epub ebooks, again, this is just a basic feature of epub3 ebooks, but we also extend the support of multimedia to epub2 ebooks using the adobe flash plugin(requiring that the adobe flash preinstalled on your device)

I've highlighted what concerns your question.

Ps: Appears to be a "young app"... only one revision.

Kobo seems to be your best bet, and Gyan looks like it could work too.

Here's a couple others, but they are low-rated or in beta, so use at your own risk.

From the description in the Market, take a look @ Himawari -

Although the reviews aren't altogether too favourable.

Also, Ibis Reader has recently introduced the epub3 format into its reader -

Please check out Gyan ePub Reader. It is a fully compliant epub3 reader with audio and video support.

No Adobe plugins are required. It renders maths equations, SVG animations and has a read-aloud feature.
