    Used to bevthe best reader, then it started crashing. Now it won't even open anymore. Tried reinstalling. Didn't work. Tried buying the more expensive premium version but it had a different interface

    Where did it go it use to be there on tablets also? Says it revamped you took away the description area. That was one of the best part of this app, you could see the info on books without having to open book. It was very useful, please bring it back. You sort by series etc anymore. This was better before. It also won't load some books, nothing wrong with them. They loaded before in older version just fine. This one sucks.

    I admire the design and quality of operation of this app. In contrast, however, the automatic import of PDFs/other is undesirable, and I did not find an option to defeat said action in settings. I do not intend to import most of the ebooks or documents I read, so auto import is an obstacle to adopting this eReader as the default app (I would prefer to read my PDFs without importing--creating--a copy). An option should be implemented.
