UI needs work


I love this app, and have a hundred or more books, some of which I have read and some I am reading. Unfortunately, the app's UI, so appealing to the beginner, is now getting in the way. I'd like to see the app open to my library, which is confusingly labeled Browse on the main screen. Then I'd like to see new ways of viewing and presenting the list of books I have -- e.g. a simple text list I can sort by author, title, or genre. I'd also like to see all my notes in their own screen so they are not dominating the library screen and instead see a list of books I am reading so I can quickly pick up where I left off.

And then there's the actual reading. The options for this are good, but very basic. I'd like to be able to change fonts, for one thing, and be able to change the background color. But most important, I'd like to see the various plain text conventions for emphasis converted into styled text. Why can't the app (or the developer before download) convert _fake underlines_ to italics, e.g.? And finally, I realize page numbers are inaccurate in ebooks, but if you're going to show me the page I'm on, please also show me the total number of pages in the book at the current font size.

Finally, the various buttons at the top of the screen are partially obscured by the iPad status bar. This may only be in iOS 6, though.

Reading for Fun In a Cool Site

Spiritual Skies

The Classics, most of them make people think they're smarter than they really are, you know? Ah, but a lot of these are truly fun, and yes, entertaining, if you try. I mean they are cool & hip, & true to the finer things, or call them the bawdy, the really relaxing, the far out, whatever, but if you look beyond the old timely words, they speak gentle, crazy & even walk the fine line between what's nice & what's walking on that wild side, or, fighting back with the smarts you need in these crazy daze ( I mean days). Look at Fanny Hill, the original vernacular for the bawdacious. And sure there are the Classics' Classics, but even these are chosen with having a good old reading time, the way reading's supposed to be. Reminds me when I first fell in love with reading- Now don't laugh- But hey- Comic Books Vocabulary is way up there in College level Words(!), but Good Old Superman used to fill my lonely teenage hours with wild excitement- Until Colleen Phalen walked into the Candy Store- But that's where & when my reading tastes took a " Candy Turn to the Fanny Hill Side of Life," so it's all good- As is this delicious guilt free site is too: Expensive Mind Candy- But for Free! Like a Great Gift that keeps on Giving, even when the Party's are all over! Read on Brothers & Sisters: Read On! And on and on and on..................

Used to be excellent, currently not so much


When I first started using this app a few years ago, it was wonderful, and I used it regularly. Then, after a couple of years of not accessing it regularly, during which time there were at least a couple of updates, I started using it again, only to discover to my disappointment that it has become very clunky and difficult to use, as follows: 1) the choice of having a white or dark page appears to be unavoidably tied to whether you have chosen to scroll or turn pages -- why on earth would they set it up like that? 2) As with almost any other book-reading app (iBooks, Kindle, Nook) I used to be able to bookmark my place in any given book so that I could be in the midst of reading more than one book at a time; for some unfathomable reason, this app no longer offers that functionality. 3) When I try to scroll down through my library of downloaded titles, I cannot get beyond a couple of rows without having the app quit on me. 4) There is no longer any way of telling how many pages remain in the book. There may be other flaws that I haven't discovered yet, but these are plenty to be going on with. Very disappointed and frustrated. The two stars are for being an app that provides access to a vast library of classic books; zero stars for functionality.
