the accessibility tools need some fine tuning as they tend to easily go out of sync with the page. Also, general navigation is a bit tricky when you first start using the ap. I'm still not sure what subtle difference in swipe motion decides whether I'm summoning a menu, turning a page, or just exiting the whole book.

Nice ebook reader. My one complaint is that graphics in some books aren't affected by the color theme, if you adjust it so text is nice and dim for bedtime reading, you can turn the page and encounter blindingly bright "new chapter" graphics. Adjusting the hue of these may not make sense but it shouldn't be too difficult to keep them about the same brightness as the text.

The app is not working. Every time it opens it says nit connected to internet. Even if my phone is. Then a blue circle continues on the book pages. Or all of the books say they aren't available and you can't read them and have to re download them. This app has become progressively more difficult to use
