Best Windows 8.1 reading app

After 3 months using Windows 8.1 tablet, and having tried several reading apps, this one is by far the best. It's disappointing that no Windows reading apps work as well and have the features of Android apps, particularly Moon+, but this one comes closest to having the features needed for study, as well as reading. I like the multi-color highlighting and notes features, as well as the text-size and page-color options. I don't like that page- and chapter-breaks are often in the wrong place. I prefer vertical scrolling, and this should be smooth, so that I can view a complete paragraph on one page. I would also prefer a pop-up box for footnotes. It's great that Windows allows me to use two apps at once on my screen, so that I can open a dictionary beside my reading app, but I would much prefer it if this app had a built-in dictionary. Neither the app nor the website appear to have been updated in a long time. Is it still being supported, and will it work when I upgrade to Windows 10?

Good

I use this app every week, however it does have some things that would REALLY improve it for a 5 star rating. Being able to underline ! Continuous scrolling. Changing highlight colors is a pain in the butt . I understand the app is free, and it is good, but a few improvements would make it GREAT.

It even Talks

A great product that I have complete control off unlike other product like Kindle or Nook who want there own way, If I am paying then I am the boss. not the other way around.

Needs better annotating

This app makes it hard to highlight and annotate because any where you touch on the screen, it turns the page! Very annoying. Also the whole page turning animation is stupid. It isn't s book. It is s digital file This is the best of the epub reader apps. This is the only reader that allows me to read epib files with embedded links, highlight, and annotate. If you wish to compare apps, get a epub file with lots of embedded data (jw.org has plenty you can test) and see if you reader can open them properly. So far iBook is the grand champion in this battle, but for the Windows 8/RT ecosystem, this is the best. I wish highlighting feature was quicker and smoother though, and that embedded pictures would open

The Best I've Found So Far

This is a near-perfect epub reader for a Windows 8/RT tablet. You can enable/disable page turning animations, change the font sizes, page color, and even switch to night mode, which projects green or red text over a black screen, thus reducing the ambient light from your tablet. It now has OneDrive cloud support, which really edges it over the other readers. I wish they had a way to control how footnotes are displayed, like at the bottom of the text. Sometimes the hyperlinks to the footnotes don't work and it interrupts the flow of reading. Otherwise,, fantastic!

Works well, just one problem

This reader does everything well, but it won't let me use my own text to speech languages. If it did, I would give 5 stars.

It needed An update

With windows 10 Tech Preview it is not working properly but I had no problem while I was using windows 8.1, I can say its the best app in the store so far and I will give 5 stars once they fix problems with windows 10

Great for studying as one of Jehovah's Witnesses

This app and its developer have treated me well. When I had an issue and mentioned it to the developer, it was fixed very quickly. I wasn't given a work a round which seems to be very popular with other developers. I highly recommend this app. You can purchase ad free versions as well, which is a great value.

Easily the best ereader for windows

Book Bazaar is easily the best ereaders on the windows platform. However, I give it four stars based on the following issues with the paid app: Rendering, it fails to render and load some of my epubs, secondly, it seems to have a problem with loading the PDF formats, maybe it is the rendering engine, but it only loads some of my PDF magazines. It is really slow loading the books/magazines. It does not have a refresh option when you add new books or remove old ones, you will have to manually remove or add them. There is no companion app for the Desktop users. I believe it can be the very best just like Aldiko book reader or caliber is to android and the windows desktop users if the creator can address these issues.
