Way to much

There are to many different features that change how the app will work and evening the lowest speed is still way to fast if you are trying to read something.

Help page is broken

Tried learning how to use it. The links in the help page don’t work. So .... why?

Developer Response ,

Hi Chain unbreaker, sorry to hear you couldn't access the User Guide and FAQ page.
This links to the help page on the HamsterBrow website at which should be accessible as long as your internet connection is active. Hope this works for you when you try again! ~ Chris
