The app has been pretty good for the most part at accessing my digital library. Some of the highlights colors don't show up on my android device unless it is in landscape. Portrait doesn't show them. I have been as of late experiencing force close on multiple devices (both Android and windows). I would also love to see a completely dark theme instead of only the darker Grey that still seems a bit hard to read in my opinion. Why not take advantage of these nice oled screens?

This doesn't sync the bookshelf with browser login. I'm continually stuck on 6 books via mobile. But my browser login shows more titles. I've looked up this problem, but no luck. Edit: when I try to download the book from the browser to the app, it tells me I don't have access. There's no clear explanation for this.

Define function is not working, it just google word "dictionary". The text is very hard to read or adjust to the phone screen, not like an ebook, rather like a pdf file - you have to pinch to zoom in and out all the time. Text to speech sounds like robot from old sci-fi. I would not use this software at all, if I wasn't forced to by my school. The PC version is even worse...

I am sorry that you are not having a great experience with Bookshelf. Define will open to the Google dictionary with the term highlighted on the webpage. It is possible that there are no results found. Can you drop a quick email to our support team at mobile.help@vitalsource.com with some additional details so that we can look into this for you?
