Cool reader was better

I really like some of the enhancements. It renders books much better. The "pinch" controls make it much easier to make adjustments without constantly drilling down through menus. HOWEVER.....on my Note 4, in the directory where I keep books, it scrolls so slowly that it is impossible to find things. (Is it even possible to use a search command? I see nothing.) I flick down and it stutters for a few seconds and finally deigns to move down a screen or two. There is no "handle" to scroll all the way down in a hurry. I have lots of books in the directory. At the rate this scrolls, it might take me an hour to get to the "Z" book. That means it is a non-starter, no matter what else is good.

Sd card... Again 'storage/emulated/legacy' isn't an external sdcard path. It should be 'storage/ext_sd', right? FB reader does absolutely the same (why?), but it has the option to browse the entire filesystem and thus saves the day... I just hope I'm wrong and it's more complicated because the issue still exists and updates are useless at this point.
