Thanks for the update!! The update lets me view the text at a much smaller size than before which is what I wanted, thanks much!! Original review: On a note 4 the smallest font size is ridiculously large, can't read 2 sentences without having to swipe to the next page.
For my purposes, this app is great. It seems clear from many of the reviews that your experience with this app will depend both on your specific device and the book you're reading. In my experience (on a Samsung tablet and an LG phone), this app has been absolutely outstanding. My favorite feature is the Offline Bookbag, which lets me read whatever I want anytime without a network connection, so long as I plan ahead a bit (download ahead of time). Anyway, I love this app and want to give thanks for it, if only to help counter-balance some of the "one-star bandit" reviews here that seem to hate this app for various reasons. Safari Books Online and Safari To Go are great, imo. Thanks!
Fixed font make app painful to use I love safari books online and have been using it for years. The moblie app for my ipad is great, but the app i loaded on my android phone is virtually worthless because of the tiny font and lack of a setting feature to adjust it. I can use it, but barely and i usually give up after i start to get a headache. Otherwise, the app is fine, but for me the fixed font size makes it virtually unusable.
Works fine but formulas are too small I've used the app quite a bit and it works fine now but the math formulas are displayed too small, pretty much unreadable. Unfortunately that's not been addressed in the recent update.
Page not centred and it disappears on the side The app would have been perfect if only the pages weren't disappearing off the side of the device making it unusable. I am having the same problem on Nexus 7 and Sony Xperia Z1.
works fine No pinch to zoom but I can zoom with one finger, almost better lol. If the upgrade is giving you trouble uninstall the app and install it again. Works great on galaxy s4!
