Formatting interfece is not straight forward on iPad

First experience with the application was very frustrating, I started reading an ebook on my iPad and I had a problem with the formatting. Each end of chapter I was loosing several lines. I tried to change character size, margins.
After trial and errors I finally found out that I was staying in Aaa modifications mode ! To exit it, you have to tap on a blank part of the text. The user interface is not clear and obvious…

Good now, hopefully better in the future

The app overall works really well as it stands, but it is obvious it still needs some work before I works consider it a daily-driver. Searching through some OPDS catalogs (using both Kavita and Calibre) will often crash when downloading and not display the entire catalog. Moreover, I would love to see more customization options as well as features. PDF's for example have basically no options (would be nice to have option to display two pages at once). It would also be nice to have more format compatibility in regards to comics as well as manga (which doesn't seem to be supported at all). Lastly, OPDS-PS would be the icing on the cake, allowing for book streaming/syncing to an OPDS server would allow users to read a book on any device and keep progress synced without having to download anything

Hello,

Our next release targets specifically PDF, with new options to switch between scrolling/pagination, control the reading direction and use a dual page mode in landscape.

We'll look into both Kavita and Calibre but based on past experience, neither of them tend to stick closely to the OPDS specification, which might explain specific issues.

OPDS-PS falls into the same category as it's not really part of the OPDS specification.
Our plan is to build support for streaming comics through the Divina profile of the Readium Web Publication specification, which provides a lot more features than OPDS-PS but it should be possible to provide a bridge to OPDS-PS down the road as well.

Provisional rating

This is a decent reading app. However, it doesn’t seem possible to share a book between my devices. Since my book is saved to iCloud, I want to be able to read it on both my phone, and my iPad. Apple Books handles that just fine. If there is a way to do this, it ought to be in the FAQ. I’ll raise my rating if the app turns out to have that functionality.
