Really nice app!


I love how the screen is so customizable. I had a lot of fun choosing my paper and text colours. Reading is very easy on the eyes. Syncing between my devices works perfectly. Very pleasant to use.

Bad luck?


For some reason every time I try this thing, something fundamental is broken on it. First, I couldn’t migrate my data from Marvin Classic. That works now, but now I can’t import new books from dropbox.

I dunno if I just happen to have bad timing and always try to use it just when an issue crops up, or what. But I’m having difficulty reconciling all these positive reviews when my own experience has been so problematic.

Crazy Geeky But...


A real pain in the backside sometimes but all in all probably the best reading out there.

The developer has a tendency to nickel and dime the user.

The new link to Goodreads doesn't work...another crap update to a generally inferior app.

There is a real problem using the Apple pen and with highlighting in general. The Apple Pen Will sometimes not work at all. The other problem is when highlighting using the finger. After it's selects the word it will jump back to the next page this usually occurs when the word is at the edge of the screen and therefore the app believes you want to screen back or forward.

I am finding more and more issues with this updated version of is still a good app but it has some very very serious problems.

iOS Problems
The iOS 10 update has created a few new glitches in the app - when changing the font color all the circles with the colors are white....always with the glitches this app.

Great app when it works but how often is that?

New addendum

With iOS 11 dropbox does not seem to be able to work with this present version of Marvin three. What happens when I tap on dropbox is that he does not believe it is attached or connected to the Internet and therefore I cannot see a list of new books that I have in my library. This is very annoying and is the byproduct of Marvin three not been properly maintained by its developer.

Update for iOS 11 The update to fix dropbox connectivity worked but now repairing word-count and pagination no longer works....the hits keep on coming with this crappy app.
