This is the app I always wanted. I make so many highlights in books and it takes forever to write them down.

This app makes all that easy. It scans the text and pulls out the words. Why has it taken this long to have an app like this? It’s awesome.

Share Quotes?

Latest update says can now share quotes with others and other apps. No info in app or Dev website on how to do so. Is it true?Sorry for 1-star, but no other way to ask.

Developer Response ,

It is true. Swipe left on a passage/quote to reveal the context menu which has the Share option. Good shout and thanks for letting us know that this isn't well documented. Will address.
