Ratings and Reviews


Unbelievably obnoxious ads

Unbelievably obnoxious ads completely unfeeling with a reading experience. I opened it to check a reference work but had to jump through a forced interaction and then a full screen gaming ad for like 30 seconds.


Interesting ideas

Bookari has a number of interesting features that are either unique to it, or which the author has taken a novel approach with.

The annotations are fairly sophisticated, clearly showing the highlighted text, and allowing the reader to add custom colors, notes, tags, and categories. As someone that takes a lot of notes, I found this welcome and useful.

The app claims to support synchronization across devices, which sounds promising. Unfortunately, I was unable to sign in via e.g. Facebook in order to enable the cloud-based synchronization. This might have a few bugs to work out.

The overall interface is clean and accessible. There aren’t a lot of complex menus or options to configure, for better and for worse. There is a unique progress display that shows not only a progress meter, but also the number of pages read and the total number of pages; it’s a nice touch.

There’s also a convenient navigation pane, which can optionally be docked to the side of the screen, which allows quick access to the table of contents, bookmarks, notes, and highlights; it’s a convenient feature, and especially when reading e.g. reference books on a higher-resolution tablet such as an iPad Pro.

That all said, the free version has highly-invasive pop up advertisements that interrupt your reading and make noise (a good recipe for waking up your partner, if you read at night like I do). And since some of the advanced features, such as synchronization, are currently buggy, I can’t justify paying money for the app. As such, I’m sticking with Marvin, which I quite like.

Still, Bookari shows promise and I look forward to seeing where the developer takes it.


Best ebook reader by a long shot!

I've been using Mantano for a few years. Occasionally I have problems and get frustrated. Then I'll download several other readers. But I've never found a reader half as good as Mantano. I did like Chmate. But it's like a pony compared to a racehorse in the features department.
Mantano's customer service is excellent even though sometimes I'm not very good at explaining the problem.
One thing I've found is that every time I try to use the new ePub 3 format, everything goes haywire. The only fix that I've had success with is to delete the document, re download it and resist the temptation to "try it out to see if its working right yet." But the rest of Mantano is SO much better than any other reader, I can live without ePub 3.
