Freading has finally hit the dirt and the creaters finally gave up. You can no longer download a book supposedly due to licensing issues according to the pop up. Which is why them adding new titles is a bit confusing. Many book titles that are on my list are now no longer available and you can't add anymore books to your wishlist. It's a waste of space and time to download and browse.

This is probably the most garbage app I've ever used. Unresponsive UI, page turns don't work half the time and when they do the screen flickers, text size adjustment does nothing aside from make the columns slimmer or wider - meaning I can't read on my phone without holding it 2 inches from my face. Come on, you can do better than this.

Only works if the ebook's embedded styles are VERY simple (increasingly unlikely, these days). Otherwise, css presets override the app (should always be the opposite) and usually make the book unreadable. Among the glitches I've seen: main text barely visible with "adjustable" 36-point headers, text the same color as the background, 2-inch margins on the narrow-margin setting, flashing text—all unchanged by the app "controls", The relevant web interface may indicate a book has been downloaded without the ebook file ever appearing and then obstruct an actual download.
