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.

superb! Still the best comic book reader but latest update made it worse. No more preloading pages?!? It's hard to flip pages now. I agree that before it was too sensitive but now it's hard work :-) Could you make it that only half the screen is needed to be swiped? Or even better: editable in settings? Another request: would it be possible to have folders in library? If you have many different comics synced it becomes messy... Otherwise great app! The best app! :-) keep up the good work
