Viewing Problems

This is a great app and have a very large collection of classic novels. Unfortunately, I am unable to view the entire page on the screen so I am missing out on text. I tried flipping the tablet but nothing happens.

Good when it works

I truly enjoy having this app. The only thing that I do not like is the app becomes unresponsive when I try to use it sometimes and I have to uninstall the app then re-install it later. But that's the only problem I have ever had. I have thought of upgrading but not with that problem.

great program

This is really easy to use. I love being able to read again. My eye sight is poor and the books are easy to read because the print can be as big as I need it.

Formatting Error Palooza

I will change my rating for this app once the formatting is fixed so that I can actually read the books on my Surface 3. Some text appears below the screen, and I cannot scroll down to get to it. Fonts are not the size they should be according to the preview.
