Review from Dale Brayden
Latest free version breaks aldiko sync I really like this app but the latest version prevents aldiko sync from accessing the local aldiko database. I am not happy about this. The irony is that the latest version claims to support 7" tablets: just don't try to read the same book on your tablet and phone.
I'm glad this application's improvement is always being worked on! I've used this since forever and always loved the designs, but other reading applications have been appearing lately with more features, functions and 'etc.' They're attractive and interesting, but they really cost a lot of phone resources. I always come back to Aldiko because of its simplicity. You don't have to compete against other reading applications, you just have to maintain the app's smooth operation and fix its problems/issues :)
After update I have to sign in DRM account every time I'd like to download a book. it's getting tiresome. I love Aldiko does not use too much of memory and have calm, attractive interface. The bookmarks works but the brightness lives on its own. It links to my library ebooks even though it should be less complicated but I love the fact I can read those on my phone.
If only the sluggish traversing between page is fixed, auto-fit width or height page and is comparable to google's pdf reader slickness, I would totally give up all my pdf reader up and never comeback. The feature this app offer is lovable, such as last page read, book mark, it made more easier for me to continue my reading.
I've used this and enjoyed it for a long time but recently reinstalled it. Now I can't add any public library and there are ads. Is this an upgrade? No reply from customer service. Bummer, had to uninstall.
How to control the brightness while reading? It doesn't adjust with the phone settings.. loved the app would hav given 5 stars if this problem wasn't there.
But support is awful. There is plenty on the help pages and if you want extra there is both a "form" and a direct email address. I have used both 4 times and have received ONE reply. Fortunately it answered my main question but otherwise, nothing.
1.Supported underlines feature (This feature is available for Aldiko Premium only)
2. Modified cover edition feature. (Cover edition features is available for Aldiko Premium only).
3.Changed the way of getting book cover image.
