    Default Reading epub files on the Nexus 7?

    I converted a pdf file to an epub file using Calibre. I copied the ePub file to my Nexus but I can't seem to read it.

    When I try to aopen it in the Fx File Explorer, I get No installed applications can open files with the media type "application/epub+zip".

    I have the Wattpad eBook reader installed on the Nexus. What ebook app do I need to be able to read these files? Or do I need to configure Calibre a different way?

    This is a perfect example of why I love this forum. Thanks guys, I was looking for a way to get and read epub files from my Google Drive account, and it looks like Aldiko will do the trick. Cheers!
