Dune flipper ,


I really want to love this app! I know that when the issues get ironed out it’s gonna rock! As an avid reader AND author I’m using this as both a beta reader and I have uploaded a manuscript. Things I’m noticing - also I am using the paid subscription-
~its hit or miss with leaving comments - especially online comments.
~I’ve noticed when I’m reading on the app words are cut off - I have an iPhone- so I’m unsure as I’ve seen words cut off but others haven’t… its weird
~It says that it will tel you where people are but mine all say chapter 1 even though several have gone well past chapter 1. I thought maybe be it was because they weren’t leaving comments but then someone did leave comments on each chapter and its still saying they’re on Chapter 1
~Uploading can take a couple times.
~Comments disappear or can’t be seen on the desktop version as well as the app.
I love the concept - I love most of the app - especially that I can like something or heart it and leave inline comments is super helpful for spelling and grammar feedback.
I can’t wait to amend my review when some of these bugs get figured out.

Great idea buggy app

Love the idea of the app. But I’ve found it to be buggy. I’ll go to approve a new beta reader and it acts like I am on the free plan so I can’t approve them on the app. I go to the website. Then everytime I update something or add something the story goes off even from notifications like it doesn’t exist. Which is why I’m telling my betas to solely use the website to gain access to avoid frustrations with the app.

Thanks for the feedback! If you can, please send a bug report to so the team can have a closer look and fix the issues. (We’ll have a look anyway, but any details you can share will help).

Too Many Glitches

The mobile app seems to have a lot of glitches. It will tell me I have a notification and then when I open it, it will disappear or it won’t show me it at all. I can’t read comments left by people either. It’s difficult to use and also doesn’t seem to notify authors when someone declines reading their story? I have gotten many messages about not responding to requests to read that I have already denied and or accepted.

Not only does the app need fixing but so does the website but that’s a whole other thing. These kinks need to be worked out or I’m going to reconsider using this application for feedback on manuscripts (and I pay for the premium membership). It’s a complete mess.
