Ratings and Reviews
Annoying popup to purchase and an even more annoying menu system
After having the app on my iPad Pro 10.5 for a few weeks, the app started showing a popup every time I opened the app from fully being closed. The popup forces you to click one of two options: buy now or buy later. It continues to ask each time I open the app now.
Before the above annoyance, upon fully testing the app, I quickly realized that the menu system is in need of a serious redesign. There are too many different paths to take in order to arrive at the same action. Some features are hidden and would take most users a while to find them. Some features only work within some views yet this won’t be clear to a user until he has tried everything as I have. Imagine having a jpeg picture file on your windows PC. Right click on that picture, no matter what folder you put it in, will always bring up the same menu for that picture file. The same can’t be said about tapping on the same book cover in different views/folders in this app.
This app works really well with iPad Pro
I own a lot of ebooks with a fundamental problem: some books just don’t view well on my small iPhone screen. These include: art books, comic books and graphic novels, photography books, books on crafts such as sewing and cooking and needlework, etc. For books with heavy graphic content or lots of pictures, I put them on my iPad Pro with 12” screen, and I use this app to view my books. It displays the pictures in glorious color. If you have problems with your eReader cutting your pictures in half on two pages, I recommend this app.
Great Book Reader, But Needs Better Editing Tools
The best comic book reader and ebook reader I’ve used so far. Unfortunately it’s lacking in editing multiple files/books at the same time. I should be able to select multiple files and tag them accordingly, but instead you have to manually tag/categorize each file/book one at a time. Really needs better organizational tools like grouping by series or whatever quickly.
Will definitely buy the PRO Version of the next KyBook 3 only IF they improve on the editing aspect.
