The latest update ruined it This used to be my favourite comic reader, until the update happened. Before, all i did was to swipe the screen to change page, now i needed to tap the side of the screen to change page. Sadly, it doest change page still, i had to tap the FARTHEST part of the screen for it to work. If you're using landscape, theres a high chance you'll accidentally tap the home button. This new update ruined it for me. Please fix this. Restore this perfect reader, undo this update. Thank you.

Latest update has ruined this app for me This app was perfect, but the latest update has made it unusable. I spend more time waiting for pages to load, tapping/swiping to get to the next page than I do reading. Very disappointed

Getting better... But the changes to the user interface in the last update are not to my liking. Why was the useful option to skip to a specific page removed in favor of the unwanted one-touch zoom? What happened to the long-press menu in the reader, and if that's gone, why has it not been replaced with another menu access function?

I don't like this update Tapping on the edges to go to next/prev is very unresponsive now. I have to tap multiple times for it to register. Second, the home screen has like 50 PX of empty space at the top which are not occupied by thumbnails (no matter what settings I choose for cover display). Please fix! Thx.

I liked it up til now I liked it on my galaxy note 10.1 2014 up til now, now it stops every time I try to access settings, and reinstalling made things worse I can't even sync my library, I may try an older version if I can find some.
