Ratings and Reviews
Useful, but Keeping Bookmarks and Annotations is a Problem
Clearview can be a useful epub and pdf reader. After a few years, it slows down and starts crashing. I was able to get it to speed up again, by removing the container with bookmarks and annotations, but I wasn't able to save my bookmarks and annotations.
Please add iOS and iPadOS support
I like this app because I store my ebooks with different formats in one big foler on mac. By using this app, I can read and annote all my ebooks without moving them to ibooks and/or kindle which can just support one or two format and also create extra space for copies.
However, I really wish I have iOS and iPadOS based clearviewer too so that I can read my books on my other devices. I guess it can work like Documents by Readdle, which link a icloud folder and get access to the files inside.
Extremely Useful and beneficial for reading pdf's
I have been using this PDF reader for the last 7 years. I can honestly say taht I' have seent he program go thru ups and downs but have always seen the bugs get fixed. Maybe not as fast as some companies like Adobe, but this app functions SO much better than adobe acrobat. It is well worth the price paid.
