One complain


When we add a note to a word, it is highlighted in a different colour and a small "note icon" is seen nearby. If exited and came back then the "note icon" is vanished from there. Which is not helpful because we can forget to see the note if the note icon is not there.

One more thing I want to add is that I need to adjust the brightness every time I open the playbook.



If I accidentally to an pinch out gesture, it hangs. I have to force closes and restart. How hard is that to fix. Stupid.

Edit: a lost has been fixed since my review two year ago! great app.
I would, however, prefer if the dictionary also reflected the color settings of the main text (night/day).

Good, but...


I would rate it 5 stars, but almost every time I use it in split view half of the words are the other way round (reading ePub), and I have to re-enter the app in full screen view, before it works again.

Apart from that I love it, and could you please add scrolling view, thx!
