Looking forward to word wrap in pdf-reflow mode

This is my favorite app fo reading books.
The new feature “pdf-reflow” makes comfortable to read large pdf on a small screen.
We expect you to develop word wrap line ending feature in pdf-reflow mode, so that large words do not leave a lot of blank space.
Also, it would be nice to have djvu-reflow.

Overall good!

Thanks for convenient utilization of TTS. I face several issues here on regular basis:
1. Some phrases contain 1-letter words from next sentences and it sounds like “some text. Capital letter I”
2. Some words in the middle of sentence are split between phrases and it sounds like stuttering: “some text comunica communication”
3. After some time of listening with screen off and opening app back again, page is rendered with pixel shift, part of page to the right is shown, narration highlight is just an offset shape.
4. Today during narration of a book section I expected next one to start, but instead it started over, so I heard familiar text, had to stop and start from correct position.
5. Please, make line breaks to be equal pauses as ‘.’ Otherwise it sounds like a space between two words with no delay.
6. During tts it crashes with screen on every several pages or paragraphs at the end of page

Nice app

Nice app - I often use it when forgot my pocketbook 301 plus. But after last update it started to crash at start or after book change. Also, it refresh only ~2000 books in library, so I have to start it 5 times to refresh all my library.
UPD: Pocket book 301 plus has less memory and CPU power, then iPad mini 4, but it can index library without crashes. So it's a question about optimal algorithms/data structures, and I believe you have a lot of things to optimize.
PS: 2.11 still crashing on startup screen (I have 10k books in library)

Developer Response ,

You know: different devices, different OS'es, different classes, different purpose...
When library is about thousand books and more, there are crashes appears because of out of memory. Huge libraries - not main purpose of iOS reader for now. But we working on this issue and it will be fixed in future. Have a nice reading!
