    Performance of the app is poor. Unnecessary animations reduce the time it takes to load the book. Most annoying bug : when you search for a topic and select a book to read, the subsequent boooks do not load. Solution is to kill the app and search for another book. Have an ipad as well and haven't been able to connect on it yet. Overall, the app needs work but the content is good.

    Doesn't work with my Android LG G2. I see the list of books, but once I tried to see one specific book in the favorite tab, the little wheel keep spinning with no other result... decide to uninstalled.
