I love this app but have been very frustrated with a glitch - the past few days I havent been able to get new chapters to open. For example, I'll open the app and see the text for Chapter 13 on Qidian. But as soon as I press the button to open in app format, I go back to Chapter 12. If I try and go forward, it sends me to Chapter 14. I just cannot open certain chapters. This has been going on for a few days now and is incredibly frustrating - I am invested in my web novel now!

Thank you for the multiple viewing options and short stories. I do desire to see more variety of stories in the future and perhaps even audio for at least some stories. I appreciate the character and definition lookup, but I also appreciate the pinyin, which is especially useful for looking up complex characters outside the app for more detailed study. The user interface is friendly for beginners and attractively designed. Altogether, this is a lovely app.

Please add a sync across multiple devices option! I love the fact that I can read Chinese novels while having a pop up dictionary for words I don't know. I do wish there was more variety and I've found multiples of the same novels. I wish for there to be a voice over feature for the dictionary.
