What is the eFreedom App?
How does your HTML5 universal "eFreedom App" preserve my freedom?
Not all app marketplaces have embraced the "freedom" concept and thus limit consumers choices to one eBook Store. The eFreedom app is based on open HTML5 internet technology and thus provides users with more options to enjoy their eBooks. Diesel eBooks allows users to transfer eBooks from other booksellers between multiple devices.

Why did you create the eFreedom App?
Autonomy - both for us and our customers, First, there are a lof of restrictions for an eBook Store wanting to sell through device makers marketplace. Second, our customers have increasingly shared their frustration with eBook devices being tethered to a specific store.
iPhone/iPad and Android apps have seen phenomenal growth. Can you afford to ignore that marketplace?
No, and we're not. We've created top of the line Android and IOS (Apple) apps that harness all the positive features of those platforms. Our view: however, is that local "apps" that aren't truly internet driven are a transition technology meant as a temporary solution until internet technology advances to the performance standards of a "native" app. We're already getting very close. As HTML5 technologies advance further, the number of native apps will reduce, but they will never go away as they will always be preferred for some environments.
Why doesn't the eBook community just agree on one eBook format for simplicity?
It has. Key technology providers via the IDPF, the official standards organization for digital publishing, met in 2007 and agreed on "ePub" as the official eBook format. The Adobe eBook platform immediately emerged as the de-facto technology used by publishers and eBook retailers. A few; however, have since decided to construct a "walled garden" that essentially tethers their eBook device to their eBook store. Studies show that this practice is one of the top consumer complaints and a barrier to some for expanding their purchases to include eBooks.
