I am looking for a nice ebook reader app for android but it’s proving to be quite difficult. Every app I stumble open misses at least a few things I want. So here is a list of things I want:

-Material You UI

-Custom themes

-Font selection

-Dictionary or translator integration

-Page view (NO scrolling through the book)

A few things that could be nice but not necessary:

-I use Foliate on desktop so a way to sync with that

-Make white parts of the black and white pictures same color as the backgroud.

I think that’s all. I searched a lot but to no avail. Hopefully this community helps me and others. Thank you guys in advance.

    You can change the background color by changing the ["cre_background_color"] key in settings.reader.lua (again, I dislike needing to configure it like this). On my Android and desktop I set it to ["cre_background_color"] = "0xECECEC",, which inverts into a nice gray when I set it to night mode, then I invert all the image colors so they’re a normal color. Font color can’t be changed though, TMK. You can change font color with custom CSS snippets.

      Not sure about UI font color, but user style tweaks can change book font colors.

      :root {
      	color: yellow;
      	background-color: navy;
      }

        Wow I feel dumb for not thinking of that. In my defense I like the text as #FFF on gray. KOReader’s arbitrary CSS snippets and style tweaks are really neat.
