Needs fixing fast

I sent a sample publication of the problem over 2 weeks ago in regards to this problem and it still has not been fixed.

I have used this app since October 2019. The last couple of weeks I noticed if you click on the asterisk in certain publications it does not take you to the footnotes and items that are in separate boxed in publications such as questions or links to take you to other items in books No LONGER WORK. Could please fix this. I just wasted my money upgrading to the new SE version thinking that would work and it’s the same problem.

Developer Response ,

No, we haven't received any email from you. Please email again.
Aug 23, 2020: As we understand from what you said, the bug is specific to some EPUB books. Unfortunately, we can't reproduce the bug. It would be much easier to reproduce and then fix the bug, if you could send us one such example EPUB file. Would you mind doing this?

As advertised in our app description, even though SE has more features, CE and SE have identical features (and bugs) as far as EPUB is concerned. We understand that you just want to get your problem solved by paying a bit more. Apparently, it didn't work out that way. But it's not supposed to work that way in the first place. In all likelihood, any EPUB bug is common to both CE and SE, as they share the same code base.

Nice app

The User Interface is a bit counter-intuitive, but once I figured it all out, I found a lot to like. Definitely worth a try if you're looking for a full-featured ereading app. It would be nice to have more control over margins and headers/footers, though. P.S. The new sync capabilities in 1.6 are a welcome improvement, but why a different app for iPhone and iPad?

Menus do not work on smaller phones

Many of the options in the menus do not work on my iPone SE. For instance it is impossible to change the the tap options. Very few of the menus work in landscape mode on a phone.

Developer Response ,

With v3.3 of the app, the menus should display and work properly now on smaller iPhone models such as iPhone SE and iPhone 5s. Please confirm. Thanks.
