What's New in Version 2.5
-Enhanced support for multitasking on iOS 9, including Slide Over and Split View
-Miscellaneous bug fixes
The only thing good I can say is it lets me read books from my library.
You can't look up a word! Isn't a book the logical place to look up a word? Every other app can do it, why do they block it?
Likewise, you can't copy text. Not a paragraph. Not a sentence. Not a word. Not even a single character. I like what iBooks does, which copies copyright material along with any text you selected to the clipboard. Everybody wins. But this app blocks it all.
Since I can't copy a few key sentences to blog about (you know, to give the book publicity), I try to swipe from the right side of the screen to open up the Notes app on my iPad. But go anywhere near the right side of the screen (swipe or tap), and it goes to the next page. Infuriating.
On an iPad, you can't do 2-up pages, to make it easy to read. No, you just have to crank the margins way up so that a line of text doesn't have 200 characters in it. This is a huge waste of the 12.9" screen.
It does allow you to change the font and linespacing, so that at least is good, although it's about the minimum one would expect from an ebook reader in 2017.
Why did they drop the Orientation Lock feature?
I've been a big fan of the Bluefire Reader since it initially launched because of the extra features like Orientation Lock. This latest upgrade dropped the Orientation Lock feature and I already miss it. I find it very frustrating to have to adjust my reading position to suit the iPad. I hope they restate this feature soon or I'll have to find a different reading app.
So many flaws!
I use this app to read pre-published books but it's such a bad app. No orientation feature, no dictionary, difficult highlighting. It's as if they just don't care. Getting the file sent to my Kindle is so difficult I don't even bother. Then they expect us to write a review of the book but sometimes I'm so frustrated with the experience, I don't care to. Please fix this app!
