Good free reader app
So far, I’m okay with this app. Many setting, no problem with the books I read and it’s FREE. The only problem is when read epub, I can only set line spacing but not paragraph spacing. It’s hard to read. When my eyes leave the screen to look elsewhere, when return it’s hard to find where I read to. If it’s have distinguish between line spacing and paragraph spacing, at least I can see around second or third paragraph that I read previously. And it’s more pretty.
Hope you add paragraph spacing option in the near future.
Good but has bug with footnotes
Nice reader, but has bug with big footnotes. It shows pop up with just part of footnote. “More” button is shown sometimes, but mostly is missing for the book with lot of long footnotes I’m reading currently.
UPDATE: Fixed in 1.0.15, thanks a lot! Small issue with expanded footnote screen coloring is left. In the dark mode expanded footnote screen has white bottom section with “back” button. I think it should be dark as well.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for this. Fixed in 1.0.15 (already available for update)
Need annotation features
It would be nice if the app supports ebook annotations with Apple Pencil. The app has so much potential. The page turning is also quite choppy.
