Clean interface, no nonsense
Fewer bells & whistles than some, which is good for actual reading versus interface twiddling
can't connect to dropbox, cant highlight, useless
there is no way to try it, so i paid for a useless app. pls, can i have my money back?
I recently had to switch back to iBooks to listen to audiobooks, so I had to drop Gerty. I feel bad because it was so nice.
If it had all the features of it's brother Marvin, it would become the single killer reading app.
