I used to adore this app but the new update has made it incredibly frustrating. It took away the space between paragraphs (like, why??) so now the text just runs together continuously making it frustrating to read and the "paragraph" sections in settings does nothing to fix it no matter what you select. I think I may go looking for a different app.

Pretty good. Used to be the best app for reading, but now I feel like maybe I'm not the target audience anymore? It's just kind of bloated now. Real shame. They recently got rid of (or hid) one of my favorite features: custom cropping. You could take a textbook page and crop it to just the region around the text which helps when reading on the phone. Idk why they changed that.

I like that it plays audiobooks. But I haven't been able to get it to access the files on my external SD card, only the files in phone storage. I now understand this is due to android OS and not a problem with the app. I like the layout, too. Overall a good looking and easy to use book reader.
