Note taking did not work properly

This is a great app to read your ePub files if you want alternative to Apple Books. It allows you to upload ePub and have them synchronised across your devices. But I am not happy with note taking feature in the app. At least on iOS, the feature is buggy. Sometimes it worked, but most of the times your notes did not seem to be saved.

Developer: please fix this.

This is a nice app but there’s a need of improvement

I enjoy using this app but I’d very much appreciate if there’s a “folder” option. Where we can categories our different genre books. And I’m wondering if you can fix the landscape mode reading. I don’t really like ‘splitting’ the screen into half when trading in landscape mode.

Looking forward to your next update.

Cannot read books on iOS 10.3

Ever since the iOS 10.3 update, I CANNOT read the books I've purchased, the entire bottom of the page will be cut off completely and the book is unreadable, on iOS 10.2.1, this app works flawlessly.
Edit: The issue is fixed in a recent update, books are readable now.
