Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful app, lots of features
Love the customization features, autoscroll and text to speech features are great. Screen and text look crisper than some other apps I’ve tried. I read a lot and like the time read counter. Link to goodreads does not work for me. Takes to goodreads app and opens on blank page. May be a problem on goodreads end but disappointing, was excited about that feature. Would love easier way to import books from calibre- select whole folder, download all etc. Clicking individually for download won’t work for me. My library is too big to do so. Currently using calibre companion as workaround so I can still have library loaded on phone but would be nice to have everything one place. Overall I love this app. Other reviewers complained about price for themes but really? Not a necessary feature of app but why not support development if you really like it. Good ereader is hard to find. Please keep updating.
Love this app!
I am used to be a fan of classical version. Then transfer to other app. Recently I got iPhone X. I looked for an app that could support X screen and then tried Marvin 3. So far I am very satisfied with my purchase.
One thing I personally don’t like classical version because the classical version was sort of “complicated” and “fancy”. Marvin 3 looks like more simple, direct and less distracting. It can make me focus on reading.
I like this app, but get one question: how can I find out the page numbers of the whole book. I changed the setting on EPUB settings. Some books show the whole book page numbers at footers. But in most case, it just shows charter page numbers even though I tired the custom setting. I used app to track my reading and page numbers would be more helpful.
One fix would make this a 5-star app
This app is a nearly perfect e-reader. The layout/format is beautiful and the options are perfect for allowing you to customize it however you like. I have Marvin 3 on my iPhone and iPad. My only complaint (which is not insignificant - to me anyway) is that the sync feature doesn’t work at all. I would love it if I could be reading on my iPad, then later open my iPhone and have it “remember” my “last read” postion in the book. Instead, when I hit sync I get an error message that says that I’m not connected to iCloud. However, I AM connected to the iCloud on both the iPad and iPhone. Repeated emails to the app developer have been completely ignored. But overall, a very nice app. Hopefully the sync issue will be fixed one day.
