Ratings and Reviews
Good, but needs updated
I like this app, but it often doesn't save my highlights and annotations. There are also glitches when I highlight, sometimes it wont allow me to switch to a different color without switching the color of my previous highlights. I would consider upgrading if I was confident the bugs were fixed. Some other features that would be nice are additional options such as underlining and ability to have changes made on 1 apple device to update on others that also have the CHM app installed.
Lite but great
I use this app to read a chm file I compiled many years ago. Compared with a popular 4-star ePub/chm reader, this app is much better. This one displays embedded HTML elements normally, whereas that higher-rated app lost many linked images.
wastes screen space on iphone X
not even talking about the notch, it just wastes so much screen.
