DAISY 3 format support was added to a fork of FBReaderJ for Android distributed by Benetech as Go Read for Bookshare on Google Play.
FBReader was originally released for the Sharp Zaurus in January 2005, a Maemo port was added in December 2005 for the Nokia 770. FBReader has since had binary packages released for many mobile device platforms and most major personal computer (PC) operating systems. The FBReader name with the FB prefix comes from FictionBook, an e-book format which is popular in Russia, the country of FBReader's author.
For easy cross-platform compiling, FBReader uses zlibrary, a cross-platform interface library. It allows recompiling for many platforms while disregarding the GUI-toolkit used.
