My phone auto-updated Aldiko Classic to Aldiko Next. Known lost features: 1. The ability to create tags and add them to books. 2. The ability to keep listening while moving to other apps. 3. The ability to see all of a series in order. 4. Access to US libraries. Desirable features: 1. Filter on two or more elements. (2 separate tags; or collection and tags, for example.) 2. Set the reader to pronounce accented vowels. Appreciated feature: The ability to keep the screen active.

Added unneeded bells and whistles, removed features I really liked, works much slower, and in a response to another post, the aldiko creaters stated that they desired to slowly roll out functionality. As if no one likes a completely functional program right off the bat. More like, they made a deal with a bookseller and wanted to roll out a new version to support buying books, but they did it before they finished this version. I have aldiko classic on my other phone, and plan to keep it.

Extremely unreliable. For example, the highlighting feature with notes only works at seemingly random times. When the feature does not work, existing highlights are invisible and it is not possible to access previously added notes. So when you have annotated 67 chapters and try to continue your work, you cannot. Maybe you'll have to do it all again. I would never trust this app to hold my ebook collection. The app is free but you will pay dearly with your time. Life is too short for this app.
