Huge step backwards from Go Read app. This does not feel like a "1.02" release, but rather a pre release or testing release. There is no search within book, no page turning, only scroll. Bookmarks say "coming soon". The "search for a great book" is only a title search. The only thing I found so far that it can do that Go Read can not is changing reading speed without having to change system reading speed. That is nice. But for me, this is not ready for actual use yet.

Doesn't save your place when closing app. You have to scroll up and down to find place. Voice kept stopping when I tried using it. It definitely has potential. I like the opening interface displaying my books. I couldn't figure out how to remove a book from my list when I finished it.

Thanks for the feedback. It is currently possible to remove a downloaded book from the Downloads tab, however it is not possible to remove or archive books presented on the Recent Books tab. We are looking into the other issues you have pointed out and hope to have an appropriate fix available soon.

Very disappointed. The visual display of the book puts in huge spaces between words, as if it is trying to justify the text on a line to take up the entire line, making it difficult to read. Sent an email to the tech support with screenshots; no answer so far. Will update if/when I hear anything back.
