I'd like to read a moderately big HTML file - about 3M. Another option is to have it split in several interlinked HTMLs.

Cool reader is the closest. Though it:

  • either crashes/gets out of memory, I don't know, on certain pages of 3M HTML file (3M not that much, actually, for a 50M free memory).
  • or doesn't support links to files lying in the same directory/zip file (in a form: a href="file.html#anchor")

Are there any other options around?

  • Have you tried converting this HTML file to a compatible eBook reader friendly format like ePub or plain text? You can use Calibre on your PC to convert the HTML file. – Sparx Apr 14 '11 at 13:53

You could try using the default Android browser. Open the browser, in the address bar enter: file://sdcard/file.html (replace the part after sdcard/ with whatever path leads to your file). You can then bookmark the file and open it later in the browser without having to re-type the address. However, trying to make a "bookmark shortcut" or using the HTC bookmark widget will not work for local files.


After testing several browsers (Dolphin, Firefox, Opera) and Readers (Moon+) mentioned in similar questions here, only

Offline Browser

seems to do the Job of reading interlinked offline .html/.htm files correctly.


Moon+ Reader has the ability to view HTML files - not the code, mind you, just the rendered part. It's an eBook reader and is available in both free and paid versions.

  • Nice reader! Like it, but for the interlinked offline htm books it doesn't work, unfortunately. – Hauser Dec 2 '11 at 14:37
