I've been really enjoying the experience of this app! I like how the library is set up, and how easy it can be to use. My only real complaint so far is just how sensitive it is to switch areas of your ebook library. I hardly touch the screen and it changes! Otherwise, a wonderful app for reading. Highlighting and such are easy. The font is pleasant to read with. Generally a good option if you don't have an actual ereader.

I've used the Nook reader app for years and it recently developed two problems. One is that I have to swipe twice to turn the page. The other is that it sometimes loses page continuity. For example, a sentence might begin at the end of a page then doesn't continue to the next page. Instead, it jumps forward a line or two. I have to bring up the chapters then go back to that page for it to continue properly. I have version Is the version in the Play store newer?

I usually enjoy this app quite a bit. It works fine on my Samsung tablet but recently Author stacks not opening within the app on my Google pixel phone. If a book is a standalone it opens fine but if it's a stack, the stack won't open. If I open the book on my tablet and start to read eventually it will show up on my recent reads on my phone, but that's the only way I can access books from a series. Haven't been able to find a solution in any of troubleshooting spots.
