  6. CoolReader 3 (from the Russian forum version) NOW WITH WRIST PAGE TURNS and basic STYLUS SUPPORT for the X03 models - the latest version is v0.0.6-6 (CREngine 3.0.57-1), see here - whole thread is here, and the most up to date version can be found here. Note: for the correct menu image file copy the appropriate attached file in the "skin" subfolder (under "system/bin/share/cr3/bin"). The .zip file attached contains several versions in other languages - the file name begins with the device type for which it works, so when after copying the image file rename it "cr3_pb_quickmenu.png" (thanks to J.C. and apos). A few menus are missing, so feel free to contribute your own ;). bivsumy (Ukranian forum user) has CoolReader page with instructions and tips that is really very good.
