After trying out the ereader options available on the Playdate so far, I found that they were making me nauseous due to their low framerate and inconsistent stuttering. I decided to make PlayBook to try my hand at fixing this problem, and man I did not know what I was getting myself into. Many weeks and a ton of whiteboard algorithm-ing later and I can finally present PlayBook, an extremely performant and very flexible ebook reader for the Playdate!
Get it here: PlayBook - Ebook Reader for Playdate by Idrees
It comes with super smooth scrolling, multiple fonts, and a lot of flexibility to customize your experience. I even added a cute (and optional) little candle to the side that tracks your progress as you read! Plus it's open source, so feel free to tinker around with the code and let me know if you find any issues!
Give PlayBook a try and let me know how it feels to use! It comes with a few books preinstalled, and instructions on how to install more are available on the itch.io page. I'm hoping to submit PlayBook to the Catalog once more people have had a chance to mess with it and tell me what they think. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!
