This app is very very confusing. No where at all so I see a list of books to choose from....I tried the search...got nothing at all. I see no where to choose a book or a genre. If you're going to have an app where people are supposed to be able to choose a book to read ...perhaps SOME instruction as to how to continue or how to find a list of books to choose would be helpful!! Every single icon or button or whatever you call them...only took me to a blank page. NO WHERE is there ANY instruction

Hi! Our application is designed to read e-books (in 24 formats) that can be stored on the user's device. We also have a book store widget, but you can buy or download free books from any of your sources, upload them to your device and the application will scan them and open them for reading. Thank you for taking the time to write!

Everything looks amazing. It's by far the prettiest ereader I've ever used. But there are a couple of hindering issues with this app. If I am reading and my device goes to sleep, it can't show me any of my books after I open it. I have to open and close the app repeatedly to get my books back. Even re scanning doesn't work. Disabling auto rotate doesnt work and if I accidentally turn to the side, it loses my place completely.

Dear friend, please write to our support so that you will be provided with correct technical assistance. Here it is impossible because of the limited number of characters in the message. We'll do our best to help you out. Thank you for your attention!

This is a really great app! It supports lots of book formats and transitions smoothly into the text to speech mode. I love being able to switch quickly and easily between text and audio. The voices are very good with lots of expression. The app is definitly a 5/5 most of the time. But it has a bad habit of compleatly crashing after about every 3rd update. And when it crashes, not even reinstalling it helps.

Dear friend, clear the phone memory and restart the phone. If it doesn’t help: find the folder .pocketbook in your phone's file system. Try to backup (archive) and then remove .pocketbook directory. It is hidden directory (so enable hidden files), the name starts with a dot. Then start the reader again. Thanks!
