Just as bad as the others

It’s exactly like all the other readers, extremely barebones. You can read text on it but that’s it. Every aspect of it is designed first and foremost to be cheaper than a physical book. No design or typography, just a couple of nondescript fonts, margins and leadings to choose from. If you make the reader do the design for you, at least open the app to all system fonts. Apple’s reader has slightly more options for dark themes than Amazon’s if that’s important.

Still waiting for an e-reader that would take reading seriously and not just spit out the minimum effort possible.

New interface unusable

The new interface makes the app unusable. The menu appears only when I tap the page. But what if the page is a picture? I use a lot of piano scores from the books store and most of the scores are as pictures on the pages. Tapping on the picture opens up the picture in full screen, but doesn’t bring up the menu button. And when the picture covers the whole page (minus the margins, which take me to next or previous page) one can’t get to the menu at all. So would you please stop minimizing everything and use some common sense when designing usability?

I think it work. But what I don’t like in Apple, they want to me buy more Icloud-space.
I have already Onedrive, but in this I cant add books from there. And also it’s hard to find ebook reader for IOS where I can just add folder from my phone to reader.
This is one cant do that.
