Txtr has launched a new Windows 8 app today that works for international users and will allow you to import ebooks that you have purchased from other companies. The application allows users in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian to access their personal cloud library to load ePub or PDF ebooks on Windows 8 tablets and PCs.
There are hardly any apps available on the native Windows 8 app store that allow you to import books purchased from other companies. Most of the ones currently available are ebook reading apps produced by Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon, with their own ecosystems at the forefront. Txtr is doing an amazing thing by allowing you to import in your own content that has Adobe DRM. Not only can you send your books into your main Txtr account, but these books can also be synced directly to your Beagle e-Reader.
“Our operator strategy remains unchanged and talks with partners regarding the beagle are progressing with full satisfaction and per plan,” adds Thomas Leliveld, Chief Commercial Officer at Txtr. “Partnership deals are expected to be announced soon. In line with earlier statements, Txtr will offer a limited number of beagles to consumers directly in Germany and the US in April to satisfy the growing demand from people who signed up to the Beagle newsletter and don’t want to wait.”
“By offering apps for all the leading operating systems available today, we do not limit the reading pleasure to just a single device”, says Ulf Stahrenberg, VP Product and Project Management at txtr. “We have focused last year on building great apps whilst we grew our multi-lingual catalogue to over 800,000 ebook titles. This excludes the countless number of free ebooks that our users have access to.”
The new Windows 8 app from Txtr is available to download now in most markets from the main Microsoft App Market! Check it out.
