I think this is a fantastic reading app. I've tried several different apps, but this is the best out of all of them. My only complaint is with the Text To Speech feature. It will read the text, but it will turn the page before I'm finished reading. I like to read along while I listen, and it's frustrating to have to manually turn the page back because Book Reader pre-maturely flipped the page. It doesn't make for a good immersion reading experience. What I've been doing instead is converting these books to MP3s via Zamzar and having the MP3 file of TTS play in the background on my phone while I read the text with Book Reader. It's a pretty decent fix 90% of the time, but wouldn't it be so much better if Book Reader's built in Text to Speech feature worked well? Kindle for PC doesn't prematurely turn the page when you have TTS activated. But other than this complaint, it's fine. It reads EPUBS and MOBI's perfectly, though PDFs are impossible to see. Could probably use something to enlarge the text like Adobe Reader's app. You can enlarge the page, but it's awkward and it feels more like zooming in on an image than adjusting font size. If these two issues were fixed, it would give it a full 5 out of 5. It's still a great app though, so I'll give it a 4.

Good jobs to you guys but I discovered something which had always on this particular app, anytime I want to refresh the app may include a new folder to scan, I noticed that everything will become so blank. And it usually not easy to access my apps that are newly downloaded. How can it done? Thanks for this great initiative. Keep it up!

Best e reader app I have used so far. Easy to use and really like the text to speech feature, considering its a free app. However it pauses after some time.
