Why did they drop the Orientation Lock feature?
I've been a big fan of the Bluefire Reader since it initially launched because of the extra features like Orientation Lock. This latest upgrade dropped the Orientation Lock feature and I already miss it. I find it very frustrating to have to adjust my reading position to suit the iPad. I hope they restate this feature soon or I'll have to find a different reading app.
So many flaws!
I use this app to read pre-published books but it's such a bad app. No orientation feature, no dictionary, difficult highlighting. It's as if they just don't care. Getting the file sent to my Kindle is so difficult I don't even bother. Then they expect us to write a review of the book but sometimes I'm so frustrated with the experience, I don't care to. Please fix this app!
This is one of those apps where you wonder if the developers use it themselves. I've tried using it for DRM-protected comics and it's just painful. Pages take many seconds to load, making reading nearly impossible. This is on a 12" iPad Pro, currently the most powerful iOS device. I'm guessing it's even more brutal on slower ones. Maybe it's OK for just text.
