Aldiko 2.0 is now available from the Android Market, with a revamped user interface and support for PDF files as well as EPUB and PDF eBooks with Adobe DRM.

While I’m normally not a huge fan of DRM, this is actually great news, since it means you can use Aldiko to read eBooks purchased from digital book stores that use Adobe’s copy protection system, including the Barnes & Noble and Sony stores, as well as eBooks from public libraries using the OverDrive service.

OverDrive added support for eBooks to its Android Media Console app recently, but Aldiko offers a far more customizable experience, plus the ability to read books acquired from multiple locations in one place.

In order to get the new features, you currently need to download Aldiko Pro from the Android Market for $2.99. The free version of the app doesn’t appear to have been updated yet.

While Aldiko is an Android exclusive, iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users looking for an app that supports Adobe DRM for library books and other titles should check out Bluefire.

  1. Are we certain the premium version has DRM going just yet? Why hasn’t Aldiko announced it on their website? The description on the market doesn’t mention the features you’ve typed in above…

    1. That’s odd. The screenshot above was taken last week,but you’re right, all mention of Adobe DRM seems to have been removed — and users are complaining quite a bit about the new UI in the comments. I’ll see if I can find out more.
