Kaiju Software has announced the public beta launch of Ehon 1.0 (http://www.ehonapp.com) for Mac OS X (10.6.4 or higher). It’s a Mac-only digital comic book, manga and ebook management program.
Ehon is designed to simplify digital library management. Users can import all of their digital comics and ebooks and let Ehon do all the work. The app will import all of the major ebook and comic file formats, as long as they’re not DRM protected, including epub, PDF, CBR/RAR, CBZ/ZIP and even image folders.
The configurable application offers shelves, CoverFlow or simple list modes. Users can choose which elements to display in the library.
Ehon is available immediately for download as pre-release software. Early adopters get a discounted price of US$18 until the final version 1.0 is released. Early purchasers get a fully functional license that will work with 1.0 version and all 1.x updates. Just remember: beta software is unfinished software so use with care.
