Most confusing app ever made
Was looking for an eReader with open annotations (so I can read other people’s comments on text in books, similar to Glose and Genius). It seems like this app is trying to do something different, but when I try to add a book (“To Kill a Mockingbird” B&N edition), it says “Pay what you want” and flashes green for a while and then it does nothing.
