It’s cool and everyhing, but I have a problem...

I recently downloaded Kitabu as I am trying to organise my everygrowing ebook collection, and so far, it’s great. You can change the font of the book’s text, add bookmarks, and the rest goes on. But the thing is, I can’t even add more than one book. Is this a bug, or do I need premium to add more than one?

Please reply.
I am disappointed.

Lightweight, usable ePub reader

Does only what it says on the packet - reads ePubs. Fairly limited range of fonts, but enough. Would be improved with acess to all the system fonts. Good alternative to Adobe Digital Editions. Display options are similar to Kindle Reader. Only one niggle: in fullscreen reading mode, you can hide the toolbar, but you need to hide it each time you activiate fullscreen again - would be good if this setting was remebered.

Still lots of potential foe this to be a truly great app - and the price is certainly right, this is the best of the free ePub readers by far. Thanks to the devs for their efforts.

Not the reader I was looking for.

To install an ebook reader it’s going to have to be an improvement on iBooks, which I already had installed. Kitsabu doesn’t appear to do anything I value in that regard.
Like many people I store ebooks on Calibre and serve those books to local devices. On the iPad I use the Marvin3 reader that lets me find books using the OPDS interface.

Best solution I have for downloading and reading a epub on macOS is iBooks (because it’s there) or Nov-mode on emacs, (because you can).
