Looking forward to further development. Neat looking, formats text well but opened my magazine once only and would not again. Also, the epub3 feature for footnotes and references doesn't work as yet.

In the beginning this app worked well. After a few updates it would freeze and shut down. Also when I tried to click on hyperlinks in the document it would take me to a blank screen. Not sure what was in those updates but the app stopped working for me after them.

Promising, but flawed Promising... I like the simple multi color highlight and even underline choices... Those features alone warrant the extra star I gave it. However, it is slow. It also does not display epub3 links (pop up text) in fact clicking on link opens blank page. Hopefully they can update to resolve these issues.

good start I am glad to have an app. for epub3. I love Mantano Reader, but it cannot handle epub3. Your app. displays the photographs clearly with no overlap of the text. I too cannot get the links to work. The links go to only blank pages. Please work on this feature. I am sure you will perfect it very soon, So far, there is nothing like the Ipad reader, unfortunately.
