I had a crucial book in this app. Whilst reading it I was prompted to update the app. I did and now the book is dead/ inaccessible. WHY?

Very unattractive interface


While I appreciate that there are some good features to this e-reader (the read aloud feature, highlighting, notes, etc) these do not outweigh the glaring aesthetics issues.

The book I am reading on this app looks nothing like a book — text runs to the edge of the screen with no margin. Turning pages leads to a brief delay and feels amateurish.

iBooks is a vastly superior platform, as is Kindle. Wishing I'd bought the book via one of those platforms as reading on this e-reader is a chore.

good help for CFA study


It is really good help for preparation for CFA as you can donwload the CFA electronic books to this application and use in your ipad.
It woudl really help if you can turn the page just by tapping with one finger on the side of page (similiar to kindle) and letter increase/decrease setup to be aplle increase the zoom of the pages for whole book and no to do this for every page
