Theoretically ePub should have the advantage over PDF as it is a smaller file that is basially HTML, CSS and image files with a few XML files for defining the books metadata, chapter order and table of contents navigation zipped into 'ePub' format. It is in many ways like a website. The PDF files will often be larger as they have embedded fonts, image ...

I think you misunderstand what e-ink is. It is nothing like LED or LCD pixels. Resolution has nothing to do with it. Typical displays emit light. You can use them in the dark and they will light up your face. E-ink displays reflect light, like standard paper. This is why they strain your eyes less. As far as reducing eye strain with a non-e-ink device, ...

Did you try SmartQ Reader? In my opinion it's the best PDF reader for Android. The interface is clean and intuitive, it has all main features that you are expecting from a eBook reader (Bookmarks, Pager, Chapters, etc..) and the transition between pages is very smooth and pleasant. And the most important in your case, the crop feature is so intuitive and ...

Aside from the usual battery-saving tips (like disabling data / Wi-Fi), you could use an app like Screen Filter to reduce the brightness of the device; this reduces power consumption. If available, you might also invert the colors in your reader app. For example, ezPDF Reader has a Night mode feature which makes the background black and the text white (as ...

Adobe Reader can follow hyperlinks in PDF documents. The problem (currently, 2014-09-17) is that the default application associated with PDF documents is Quickoffice, and Quickoffice doesn't have this implemented. Installing Adobe Reader allows you to choose (and optionally remember your choice) what app to use.

If you need an app to read ebooks, I would suggest Tap2Speak Reader. It doesn't have as many features as those popular ones, but is sufficient for your situation. In addition, it can use Google Translate to speak more than 50 languages. It saves you much time from finding a "usable" text-to-speech engine.

I have been using MobileSheets recently and have used it with big band charts that I scanned in as PDF files. The nice feature I found was the ability to set links (up to 10 per song) back to a D.S, sign and then from the "to coda" sign jump there using a Airturn 105 pedal. Worked great in a performance where I had the set list set up and could just keep ...

Agreed, I think MobileSheets or the Fakebook (my favourite) is the way to go. Quick browsing in music and (almost) no delay when swiping between pages. Some of the other features between these two varies, so YMMV. Fakebook is at http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skrivarna.fakebook.android Hope this helps!
