FBReader

FBReader may not be as flash as some of the iPhone's e-book apps but it does the job and is very simple to use. Files types supported include ePub and Mobipocket - though not PDF. You can set multiple bookmarks in multiple books and can switch between black-out-of-white and white-out-of-black as light conditions dictate. The library layout is foolproof, and you can download directly into the app library from the likes of Feedbooks.

GDocs

It seems incredible that Android doesn't include a Google Docs app. Until it does, GDocs will have to do. In free form it lets you read your Google Docs remotely or download them onto your phone, but cough up an extra €1 (90p) for the Extras pack and you can upload and sync documents too. It's not perfect - for instance every time we upload an edited file it appears in the Times New Roman font when we re-open it on a PC rather than the original Verdana - but it's a lot better than nothing.
