If it works, it work

I’m not particularly a huge fan of not having an visible default option to see folders before the entire library itself. I’m scatterbrained so I can hardly remember what I wanted to read unless they’re under a folder with particular genre. Anyway, it’s useable and I liked it. It’s slower to load my books than when I first got the app though, not sure why that was.

However, I do have a minor gripe and it’s the app lacking an ability to edit the author’s name. For whatever reason, two of my books from the same series were under a different “author’s” name—because the first and last name were swapped and I can’t fix it. I understand why the edit ability isn’t an option because it’s meant to protect the author and to preserve their rights as the book’s owners. If I can just swap the name so the books could go under the correct title and with its’ series, that’d be great.

Overall, it’s a good app. Would recommend.

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.

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!

Continuous scrolling has disappeared!!

PocketBook Reader has been a unique, outstanding reader for people who like continuous, non-stop scrolling (stroke to adjust speed). For handicapped people, people who do not like to hold a book, and the rest of us who like to read without having to reach out and turn every page. Suddenly, this most recent update has removed the continuous scrolling, which is a huge disappointment. Now PocketBook Reader is just like the other reader-cloners. Before, it was unique, exceptional, and the only reader available which offered continuous scrolling. I am so sorry I updated this time. Fortunately, I have one iPad left without update, and from now on I will read only on that iPad.

Please, please, developers, bring back the continuous scrolling. It was one of a kind, your strongest feature, which offered a service no other app offered. No other updates or "improvements" can compensate for taking away the continuous scrolling. I am devastated. I had relied on it for hours every day and have been your (previous) biggest fan.

I don't understand...
We have continuous scrolling feature. And it works.
Just choose scroll mode and make double tap on text.
You can choose reading mode in second circle menu
