Can’t read

While I fully understand why netgalley want their own reading platform they need to make it usable .

Cannot change font size , to difficult to read . Am unable to review so many books because they are no longer available on my kindle

Can I just read?!

This app is super glitchy!
I ‘bookmark’ a page and that bookmark just disappears when I come on next.
If I stop reading part way through a chapter, when I come on the app next it has gone back to the start of that chapter.
A couple times now I have just swiped to go to the next page and it has jumped ahead like 5 to 10 pages for no reason.

Also why isn’t highlighting/note taking an option for the eBooks? You would think considering this app is purely used for books that are to be reviewed that you would have the option. Highlighting so we can mark parts or making notes for when we want to go back when writing our review should be a given. Really not happy with this app.

Also downloading the eBooks takes way longer than it should.

Unable to read graphic novels

Managed to finish downloading the graphic novel but it’s all a white page with no buttons to go back to main menu. Downloaded the app just to read them, but might have to figure a way to get it on my kindle instead.
