Not even worth it. I had the app a few years ago and it was so amazing that I paid for it. Now neither it nor the pay version allow you to find or place files on your phone. I have DOZENS of free pdf books, texts from research, etc and can't use the app at all. What a waste

The 20 chapter limit makes the app pretty much unusable. No adaptation for higher resolution screens or newer screen ratios. Only landscape orientation, not so convenient to hold the device, especially for a long time.

I like the app it's fantastic. I just would like an option to have the text move smoothly (not jump).. like a news ticker tape at a controlable speed. Thank you.
