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.

The old version was amazing- one of the only ereader apps that allowed soft editing of covers, titles, authors, metadata, & most importantly, adding a synopsis. It was perfect the way it was, even if it looked a little campy. Adding combined functionality for ebook & audiobook media rocks, but not at the expense of this mess. None of the features that made it stand out before, no ability to move the secondary file copy/library they force on you to external storage. What a waste.
