I have an 8GB iPod Touch with v2.2.1 OS. </p> <p>I had the Stanza app (v1.9.1) and was enjoying it quite a bit, until I was on iTunes one day and noticed that there was an update for Stanza. I promptly updated it and got my iPod out.</p> <p>After I had synced my iPod, I went looking for my app and found a glaring hole in its place. This was not what I had expected. I did some research and learned that this update (v2.1) was only compatible with iPod OS v3.0 and later, which I did not have.</p> <p><a href="http://www.lexcycle.com/node/2297" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lexcycle.com/node/2297#comments Stanza Support 1.9.1 2.2.1 downgrade download Help OS Stanza Fri, 04 Jun 2010 23:10:57 +0000 Arkady77 2297 at http://www.lexcycle.com Stanza iPad PDF low memory crash (deleting books) http://www.lexcycle.com/node/2290 <p>Hi there,</p> <p>Just pulled down the new Stanza with iPad and PDF support.</p> <p>I have a several pretty large (300MB) PDFs.

Please note that this is only available for Stanza iPhone and iPod Touch, and not Stanza Desktop. </p> <p>The key point to realize is that when Stanza is told that something is a picture book, it will ignore almost all other tags. So this feature only works with image only books.</p> <p>To turn an ePub into a picture book, add the following element to the metadata section of the content.opf file:</p> <p><a href="http://www.lexcycle.com/content/picture_book_mode" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lexcycle.com/content/picture_book_mode#comments iphone ipod touch picture book Stanza Wed, 24 Mar 2010 17:05:04 +0000 neelan 2091 at http://www.lexcycle.com Stanza doesn't connect with Stanza Desktop via an ad hoc connection http://www.lexcycle.com/node/2089 <p>Hey, everyone!</p> <p>I'm using Windows 7 and have been trying to connect my iPod Touch to the Stanza Desktop via ad-hoc connection but so far without results.

You can read books on either with a similar look, but Stanza is much more robust in terms of tools: highlighting passages, dictionary, etc. Stanza also provides a nice selection of book vendors, and free is always good. Kindle may have more books, but the last two, relatively recent titles which I wanted and was prepared to pay for, weren't available on Kindle. It all argues for a universal ebook format accessible on any reader. I would hate to see the world of books cut up and locked up by individual vendors.</p> <p><a href="http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1630" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1630#comments Stanza Support access format kindle Stanza tools vendors Thu, 15 Oct 2009 00:33:31 +0000 1630 at http://www.lexcycle.com Is The Stanza Usable On Other Phones Such As The LG VU or LG Incite? http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1626 <p>Topic ^</p> http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1626#comments Stanza Support App Incite LG Phone Stanza Vu Mon, 12 Oct 2009 16:59:03 +0000 1626 at http://www.lexcycle.com Stanza crashed after launching http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1602 <p>The last version of Stanza is crashing when launching, Snow Leopard 10.6.1.</p> http://www.lexcycle.com/node/1602#comments Stanza Support crash Snow leopard 10.6.1 Stanza Sat, 26 Sep 2009 18:38:53 +0000 1602 at http://www.lexcycle.com How to Read Right to Left Languages in Stanza iPhone http://www.lexcycle.com/content/right_to_left_language_support <p>There are handful of languages out there where the text is written right-to-left (RTL) where the writing starts on the right side of the page and finishes on the left.
