It's almost the best. It's a work in progress.

Need guided speed reading as the one in outreads or quick read or Litz.

The ability to sync highlights and notes across devices.

It has the ability to sync page numbers. But not the highlights or notes. Which is disappointing.

It has a very pretty export notes and highlights. It can be exported as PDF or ePub. I will find it very useful.

karaoke (I.e. Spritz style speed reading is good.) but it can learn from KyBook or outreads. In kybook text rolls in from right and disAppears on the left side of the screen. Or you could choose to have just one word at a time. I like the former.

In litz, you can see the entire content while you are speed reading. This is really helpful. Because at times you get lost while karoaking (spritzing). And you need to see the bigger picture. I.e. The whole page to connect the dots. So this would be helpful.

Just wow! A must for any avid reader.

Hands down the best eBook reader. Packed with tons of features, but not overwhelming. Really love the way it keeps track of word definition lookups, speed reading (karaoke mode), sort by book series, and tons more nice to haves. Thanks!


So I installed the app only to find that I cannot open an iTunes book unless I connect to a computer and then manually move the book to the app. This is ridiculous.
