Problems With Your Reader

The reader has begun to crash. Also, it does not allow for highlighting or adding notes like the .pdf reader I use. I will be looking for another one

Needs Feature Upgrade

1. Add bookmark capabilities (sync locations across all devices + open vs closed books. 2. Add pdf, mobi, and txt formats 3. Add font change (possibly let users host custom fonts on skydrive?) 4. Multiple book upload 5. Add annotation (notes + Highlights) For #1 and #5 I advise using a simple xml file in the book folder With these features (plus maybe a cleaner lighter interface), you will become the best ereading application and possibly the ibooks competitor for Windows 8!

Good rendering, non-existent annotation support.

For me, my primary use of an epub reader is to study textbooks. While your rendering engine is good your app was completely unusable for me. I require simple easy to use highlighting support, note support, the ability to zoom in on photos and ideally dictionary support. See iBooks as a minimum reference here.

Looks promising, but...

A locked ecosystem is the quickest route to making sure whatever you hope to accomplish with this app is a surefire failure. Even Nook allows us to import our own epubs, and Barnes & Noble is wildly successful. Follow their example.

crazy

this app is totally a waste of time, all they are interested is getting your money for nothing

Problem with Opening Books

Every time I try to open a book, I get file is not valid mediabook, sounds like I have to buy books to be able to use your book reader, and these are all epubs, so until this feature is fixed no stars

You need the Mediabook creator

Other reviews don't read what this does. It plays files created with Roxio Mediabook Creator. However, the performance is just horrible. Massive lag on a small 5 page scrapbook just makes this useless. Entirely useless.
