What's New in Version 2.1.2
- Fixed 'App Crashing' item
formatting doesn't translate well
I only took a look at the preview content, but it looks like you basically reproduce the printed pages verbatim, page by page.
This doesn't well on my mini ipad, as I keep on having to scroll around to read even one printed page. Basically this is a deal breaker because it's such a clumsy way to navigate around a page.
Take a look at the wikipanion app for a better to handle it. you're better off dynamically reformatting the content based the device screen size. again, take a look at wikipanion as an example.
Content: great, app: frustrating
The content is what you'd expect. The reader, however, is not. While it renders beautifully, it regularly "snaps" back to the top of the page. If, while dragging the page during reading, you bump into the left or right side, the view snaps to the top again. I believe the app sees this as a navigation from the previous or next page, even though you never left the current page.
It happens to me at least three time for each page I read, and I'm being careful. Infuriating!
