    I used to love the way it worked, looked and handled my books. Now it looks horrible with all the we heavy underlining and the menu is just a bunch of advertising ofbooks I dont want. I paid for the app stop pushing these junkie novels on me. I want the old a app back, ver 1.2 before the marketing department got there hands on my tablet... very unhappy with it.

    I used to love this app, freezes, crashes, and all. I use this for very fast moving question and answer sessions but because of the faint highlighting, nothing stands out on the page. If I had known, I would have skipped the update. Although I still use it, for now, I am looking for an alternative
