We knew this was going to happen. Those who downloaded Messages when it was available in beta version for OS X Lion will have to consider their alternatives.

I think I have a new favorite ebook reader for OS X. That, my friends, is Ehon. It’s meant to be a digital comic book reader and it’s a good one, too, able to open comics in CBR and CBZ formats.
But Ehon also supports epub files and there are a number of reasons why it makes a great ebook reader.
When facial recognition fails.
Apple’s iPhoto app for OS X can do fantastic things with its facial recognition feature. But when it fails, well, sometimes it gets weird.
What is the sound of one facepalm clapping?
Stanza seems to be running again since its “demise” about a year ago. Good thing, too, as it gives you more choices in reading books on iOS, though development on the app seems to be frozen up to now.
There are, of course, many ebook readers on the iOS app store for the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad, including Apple’s very own iBooks app.
The following are some of the best, free ebook readers for iOS. Note that while the apps are free, many books need to be purchased from an ebook seller. Free books are available online on Project Gutenberg and other websites.

Laptop and desktop computers are a great way to read comics. One of my favorite comic book readers for the Mac is Comical. Comical is free and it can read CBR and CBZ files and is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux. But there’s a catch.
Comical runs on older Macs running OS X 10.3 Panther (see screenshot above, from the developer’s website) and OS X 10.2 Jaguar.
I’ve used it on OS X 10.4 Tiger and OS X 10.5 Leopard. It should also run on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Unfortunately for Comical fans using newer Macs, the app does not run on OS X 10.7 Lion 10.7 or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It’s a pity because Comical is a mighty good comic book reader.
