Sadly this app is no longer the highly efficient organised reader it used to be and seems to me to get worse with each update. It annoys me so much now I really can't use it any more. Even something as basic as author or series sort and display no longer works. I am really disappointed.
Loved this app for years, but latest update totally ruins the user interface. Ugly colors, odd layout (who puts categories on the right, details on the left?), confusing controls. (Took me best part of an hour to figure out how to get from HOME screen to main BOOKS list.) Still very powerful, but would not recommend (especially to a novice) unless/until UI is restored to previous elegance. If it's not broke, for pity's sake, don't screw it up!
I purchased this product to put annotations in my book files. Everything worked wonderfully since recently, my highlights and notes started to dissapear, highlights randomly getting placed in different lines, showing wrong notes, it is just a mess. Good thing I made a back up sheet of my notes. I think one of the recent updates messed the apps database or something. Such a shame, this was my go to app and used it everyday.
After recent updates bookari looks to address alot of issues that have plaued this app since it's transition from mantano. However the updates since Dec. 14 have broken the thumbnail view in the bookshelf so even if you sort the bookshelf by series, the books in the series won't be by each other due to other books coming in between them. It looks like rows have been removed completely. It is a shame since organization has been this app best selling point since day 1.
Three stars instead of 5 because now that I'm using the paid for app, it won't close down unless I force stop it on my Note 3. Its icon remains at the top of my phone permanently whenever I open it. Very irritating and a waste of power. I also don't like that it closes a page when you save, and the blank, unnoted page is all that's showing unless you tap on the page again. I would prefer that the page I've written on come up when I open the book. Kind of cumbersome. I use this app often so these changes would be helpful!
The interface used to be really well thought out, elegant and efficient. Now it's just a mess, extremely cluttered, illogical, and, in my opinion, unusable. It's such a shame because the developers have wrecked what used to be an excellent app. Another reviewer asked if they could go back to a previous version - I would echo that sentiment.
