It’s almost perfect

Does everything I need, cross platform logins, read multiple formats, save multiple bookmarks, a lot more. The thing is Im on Apple SE 2nd Gen and for the life of me I can’t figure out the touch gesture for exiting to main menu or pulling up options and table of contents once Im reading a book full screen. I’ve tried swiping all over the reading, which just changes pages and outside the area, holding down but it just highlights words and gives note taking options, Ive used multiple finger gestures. It just never works anyway and then it will randomly work or I have to exit whole app to exit reading but then sometimes it will take me back to main menu or just start me back in full screen reading mode and I just keep touch gesturing around the screen until the options, table of contents and back arrow pulls up. Is this just me? Or my phone not fully compatible? Developer what’s the touch gesture for exiting full screen mode to back out to my library?

Developer Response ,

Just tap once on a screen center.
There should be an animation with this gesture when you open book first time after install.
Have a pleasure reading.

3 stars but

I’m giving 3 stars only because I’ve only explored my main reason for using and nothing else yet. BUT 4 stars (i don’t give out 5 stars) for what i wanted which was an ereader with autoscroll. Why is this feature so impossible for other ereaders? I read fast and sick of constantly having to tap screen to page turn. This autoscroll works great for me. Now if Apple will allow the use of the volume button (which boggles my mind they don’t) then ill be very happy. Other than that i like the ease of getting MY ebooks by simple transfer from pc to phone/tab and to app folder. Unlike 2 main ereader apps that need no naming. I have hundreds of books and now i can read them without pulling my hair out because i didn’t buy at those 2 stores. So 4 stars for what i need and ave. 3 stars for everything else.

Lifesaver for library DRM pubs

Most of my library books go to kindle where I can use the infinite scrolling feature. But now and then a book I want to read isn't available in kindle format.

I am a fast reader and scrolling allows my brain to take in entire sentences and paragraphs in accessibility large font. The traditional page turning doesn't because with large font sentences and paragraphs are chopped off to the next page.

The other critical feature to me is the background. I have astigmatism and need dark font on a contrast background that is easy on my eyes. The ability to select a custom color font is amazing! Haven't seen this feature in my other book readers.

Having so many fonts to select from was unexpected and added to my reading pleasure.

No other reader, including Kindle app can offer me a precise background and font color in combination with infinite scrolling and font style, let alone layout.

I had no problems logging into the adobe account or connecting my library download to the this app in iOS 14.

I am over the moon that I can use this app to read all my library books. The true test of course is if this app continues to perform over time.
