    I can't navigate around book at all. No button holding or swiping or tapping anywhere works. It just plays the book and i cant see my progress or what chapter i'm up to. I think this is result of an update. I wont be buying it!

    I only wish to say that there are a few conflicts with my Nexus 7 tablet settings and commands. Sleep...etc. Only wish there was a reduced price on your App for Canadians as we have to be Subdued to Regulations of WWW Download regulations for books and stories. Thank you…Trial user in Canada.

    When I open the details on a book, Talkback makes it sound like the information fields are blank. This is very irritating because I would like to get more information about a book before I download it.
