Great, but one small thing...

I would buy the full version of this app to do all my reading of PDFs and ebooks if one thing changed. I know it’s silly, but in the classic book view in landscape, it still shows the two columns of text as one page. I want it to show to facing pages, one for each column of text, just like a real book (like the original iBooks). Once that feature arrives, I’ll purchase the SE version and never look back.

Great ePub Reader!

Being an avid reader, I routinely look for newer and better software to enhance the experience, but I keep coming back to Maple. Using Calibre’s opds server function, the link up between my laptop where the ebooks arrive and my phone where the ebooks are read is smooth and fast. There are enough options for font, size, layout, background, overall look of the app, how pages are turned, etc. to please anyone and the controls for them are quick and easy. There are lots of options for sorting and viewing multiple books so I can quickly find whatever I want from 3000+ titles. Navigation within books is easy and you can set bookmarks. Good, responsive support from the developer. Both thumbs up!

Nice app

The User Interface is a bit counter-intuitive, but once I figured everything out, I found a lot to like. Definitely worth a try if you're looking for a full-featured ereading app. P.S. The new sync capabilities in 1.6 are a welcome improvement, but why a different app for iPhone and iPad?
