Customer Reviews

Unintuitive, clunky, and hard to use

Upon using Kitabu for the first time, I was sorely disappointed. There was an error loading an epub, and once it was open, pages were clipped, the cover wrapped to another column, and the provided instructions were inadequate, with the column button alternating between three different options, each buggy and inadequate.

Overall, I feel that to a first time user, this application is not user-friendly, and that without a way to snap pages to fit in the screen in a reliable way so that words are actually readable, this application does not perform up to par.

Basic but rather nice

It is a fairly simplisitic eBook reader without a lot of gadgets.

Didn’t work at all

Would not open EPUB book.
It opens in iBooks, but not in this app.
