    Overall pretty good app. Has alot of awesome settings. Would love to see double tap and pinch to zoom features and some improvements on the UI: like a book self and a recently books read list etc. But even now i believe its better from the most paid readers and all of the free ones!! Will give it 5 if some of the features i mention going to be added later on :)

    Overall a good app. Nice compatibility with different book file types. User interface could be a bit better. Reminds a little of the older days with dos but it works. I can read my DeadPool Comics and D&D books. Keep it up!
