App does not disable auto-lock

Love the app. Love to borrow books from the library from the comfort of my home!

I just wish the developper would put in a request with Apple to disable auto-lock when the app is in use so my screen doesn’t keep shutting off when I’m reading, and so I don’t have to manually disable auto lock when I’m using the app.

This is the most frustrating, convoluted, annoying app I have ever used.
It sends you in circles.
Even after figuring out how to run the app NOT in safari, it still requires too many buttons to figure out.
Then it switches screens too many times.
You can’t go “back”.
You have to start all over. Terminology is inconsistent.
Plus you have to go in and out of your library.
When you press download it does not download.
You have go back out to files to find it, then download.
When you click on the file download or the icon of the book in the “files” you cannot open the book!!
Then you have go out and try try again.
Horrible horrible horrible.
It should be this easy:
1. Log in
2. Pick title
3. Press download
4. Start reading/listening
5. The end.
