Simple and excellent

I have used many epub readers. They are either far too complex and convoluted (MoonReader), or lacking essential tools such as highlighting or bookmarking. PocketBook Reader has all the essential features but not so many as to be confusing and make it difficult to use. It is the only epub reader I have felt deserving of use. Biggest problem: I can find no way to easily locate a set bookmark if losing track of where it is. Flipping through Page after page trying to find a lost bookmark is not time conservative or user friendly. Would like to see this fixed... or a more obvious way to do so if such feature already exists.

Developer Response ,

To set simple bookmark just tap on top right corner of screen while reading a book.
To highlight text you need to select it by long tap and choose one of four colors (You can scroll longtap menu)
If you want to see list of bookmarks or highlights, tap on screen center and tap on menu button on top right corner or tap on book title or swipe left. Then choose appropriate topic using segmented control (Contents - Bookmarks - Notes & Highlights - Book Info)
Have a pleasure reding!

It had promise...

Now it doesn’t even open books already on the device - those I read once. I will removit from my iPad.
—————— older review
I was initially impressed by the application - mainly due to the UI - my initial review is attached. Unfortunately it is getting worse - some books take ages to display if at all. OPDS is not working - and I gave their support access to my calibre server to test but never heard them (but other readers work with it and so does a browser). It slowly gets unusable.
———————- original review
But I The name is nostalgic reminder of popular reader more than 15 years ago. The UI is innovative and good. The layout of the books is very good. I would recomment adding a sellection of fonts. So far I did play only with epub books but I plan to check some more. The Library support appears to be multilingual but I could not find a language selector. Also I could not access my home OPDS server (that I can access in Kybook).

Developer Response ,

Thank you for review.
We already have an eInk readers :) And the reading process is synchronized between eInk devices and iOS or Android devices. For example you can start reading the book on the iPhone in the café and continue reading at home on Touch Lux.
We plan to add more fonts. Now you can only choose between sans and serif. However, additional fonts should be available in future releases.
You need language selector for what? I don't understand your idea...
We have OPDS support. Maybe you can explain more?
Have a pleasure reading!

The best app ever!

This is the best! Seriously. I’ve seen too many apps of this type and none has pleased me so well as this one. The most I like is the Text to Speech function, the best I’ve found. Bear in mind that it never Freezes, you can lock your phone and it keeps working, it doesn’t matter if it’s reading a 5 thousand pages book, it never crashes, I mean it, it doesn't matter in what format is your book, it load it anyway, this is the best! And it's for free! Completely free! I live in Cuba and I really don't have any money, jeje, If I could, I would donate some money for sure. Some day I will because I owe them so much. Thanks a lot for everything.

Developer Response ,

WOW. Thanks! So grateful that we have such support from you guys! Enjoy.
