Works great but the website for it is done in some strange format that Google Translate can not translate the web page. Please provide an English version of the page. It works pretty well but on long vertical strips like manhwa's and such it can sometimes be too narrow to read and trying to zoom it doesn't always work. Wish they figured out a way to make Magnify work when using Vertical viewing options like Toon, Vertical, and Continous Vertical.

What a great app! ;D I downloaded it after using 'maru' for a long time. It is extremely easy to see text and image files. Besides, it's very comfortable without ads!! But I'm sorry that the 'hwp' ,'docx' files are not available :(

One of the best reading app ever. Easy to use and modify in my own convenience. I was reluctant to pay for it at first but I'm glad I did!
