So much potential ~ but for now doesn’t live up to more than novelty

I really want to like this app! And it’s a fun novelty app @ .99 (thus 3 stars) - It will open Project Gutenberg ePub books

BUT as you’ve been warned a few times before it will not open ePub that you’ve created (Pages or Calibre). For that reason it’s useless for me working a Master’s degree pgm needing to speed read items converted from PDF to ePub. I’ve attempted converstion to ePub from PDFs & from HTML (not DRM locked files) I just cannot get it to work (same files will open in iBooks on my iPad & MacBook). Same as others, I get TOC on left panel but nothing in the reading window.

I've e-mail the support site & received nothing in reply. NOTE: app release date 17 April 2014 ~ visiting webpage & blog 2014 are last entries - Therefore sumize it’s an abandonded project. <sigh> sad because it held great promise ~

Not Awesome, But Could Be Worth A Few Bucks If Sold If...

I’d be willing to buy this program if it gave the user flexibility in it’s preferences.

1. The Shimmer (is centered) and Underline is on a single character that smoothly glides through the text. - That’s a strain on my eyes and I wish I could widen it up to 10 characters.

2. The Fade (from the unread material being black and change to grey) and Embolden (unread is grey and change to black) was a nice approach too. - but the preference could adjust the shade of gray, or changing the color altogether. A bonus would be to change shades of color and from regular to bold font, or visa-versa.

3. You’re not able to restart unless you import, or paste, the material back. Otherwise, you’ll infuriously be clicking back line by line. - a “Back to Beginning” and “Top of Paragraph" buttons would be nice.

4. Awesome if somebody could get an e-reader to work on PDFs. - Be worth a few bucks more then.

Great Product!

Great product, makes reading articles from the internet must easier (no ads) and the cursor keeps me focused at my spot on the page. If I need to stop and do something else, I can just pause it and then pick up where I left off when I am ready. Also, ART Reader lets me know how long it will take me to finish an article. This is great! I love it and will use it all the time! I am excited to use ART Reader to track my progress to read faster!
