Ratings and Reviews
My iphone has this app but when i found out that you can get the same app but better was a huge releafe i read 24/7 on this app. I recommend this app for you book lovers
Great but expensive
I use this app all the time for reason projects for school or just for fun. It's note taking, highlighting, and bookmarking features are fantastic but the books are quite pricey, as expected. Wonderful app in general.
Why there's no Go Back for PDF with Hyperlink
This is a useful app. But it lacks the "Go Back" feature for PDF's hyperlinks. Every time I follow a link, I have to move back to the original page manually.
