Menu bar and download books


Menu bars won’t disappear. It’s actually a disturbing thing to readers. And some pages of the other stories just won’t open even it’s already downloaded (example: beasty page 38) I hope you can fix this. And kindly let the readers know if the story is completed or not so they could properly select a story they would download and read. Thank you😊

Developer Response

Hey there! Thank you for the feedback. The menu bars issue will be addressed in the next update, so make sure to stay tuned for that. Regarding the chapter reading issue, can you send us an email about this ( so we can find your account and investigate further?

Chapter Update and Bugs


Everytime I click an update, it will say that the chapter isn’t available and I’ll be redirected to the previous chapter together with the got it button. But everytime I click it, nothing happens. I have to uninstall and install the app so I can read the update which I find very time consuming and inconvenient. I hope you can work on this concern. Thanks!
