The new look going into 2017 is bad. Icons and text too small to see, 2 times more touches required to fast page scroll. The old interface wasn't good but they still figured out a way to make it worse. The old interface allowed a single touch to show fast page scroll.
Not the best interface Even on an 8.4 inch tablet, the interface and navigation needs a lot of work. Rather than using tabs, author elect to use sliding columns which overlap. Each column takes 1/3 of screen, leaving limited real estate for final area of interest.
App not recognising hotspot In library, my browser and people on old app get free access but not me on phone or tablet. It just offers payment options. I would love to have the app work as I really value the service. Thanks
Why Change? Who decided to change the background colour to white?? It's hard to read now! White papers against white background!?? Bad on the eyes! I want the black background back. I should choose not you! Quite pissed off. I'm editing this to 1 star because I hate it! Why did you change it and make it bad? I used to be able to preview pages to find what I want but that feature is gone!Now I have to continously scroll. If I go too fast it stops.bloody horrible.its ruined my reading experience.
Adequate Finally some significant improvement!. Still occasionally crashes on startup but not during use...yet. However, often don't see chapter/section headings ie. just page numbers and often can't use listening function.
Annoying interface sometimes Works.. but very frustrating, especially new version received around Dec. 2016. I often can not pan to read the right column of newspaper. The newspaper drifts back on its own to center. Very annoying. After several tries it jumps to next page. Latest Android Samsung tablet.
