Bought the Pro version a few years ago and it worked great for years. Sad to say, recently it has become quite buggy and prone to crashes. If these issues are ever fixed it will go back to being a five star app.

Can there be an option to highlight lines and save them? I know there's a lengthy quotes page but I'm wanting one that I could personalize. I know there's bookmarking but that doesn't capture the specific lines. Thanks for this app, helps a lot 👍

Great app. Thank you for your time & effort. Give me thine ear! Some achieve greatness. So I feel this app would be made great-er by 2 things: 1. Adding a feature that allows one's search To Be (or Not? preferably the former though) within one or two, maybe even 3 plays only. Currently, the search option looks for things in the entire collection (can b tedious) 2. Being able to copy&paste sentences 4 stars until this changes - The fault is not in the stars - I desire 2 much of a good thing :)
