DL Reader

I love how easy it is to make the print larger. I would like it better if you could bookmark pages. Since upgrading to Windows 10 I get a black screen when I open a book. However, if I right click I get the back arrow which goes to the bookshelf. Then upon reopening the book I can read it. Yes it is annoying but new OS means some annoyance.

At last, a Windows 8 DRM reader.

Adobe Digital Editions does not play well with touch, but this app works fine. I wish I had found it sooner. My only complaint is that there does not seem to be a way to return books early to Open Library. Thanks for a great free app that adds a lot of value to my Windows tablet.

Worst App I have Ever Encountered

I have never bothered to write an app review before but the DL reader for Windows 8.1 is so horrific that I felt absolutely compelled to share. It is an utter joke. The page turning functionality works less than 30% time, and even when it does there is severe delays. There are no features beyond just turning the pages (can't even highlight). How it can be so simple and still completely fail to execute is beyond me. If I could give it zero stars, I would. In fact, it is squarely in negative territory. This is the only app I am aware of that allows me to read my epub book on a Windows 8.1 tablet, or I would have just ditched it and moved on. I hope for the sake of the company that I have a corrupted version, otherwise this app is doomed for utter failure. To quote Billy Madison, DL Reader I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

Bad choice for Surface RT

Very slow page turning on a Windows Surface RT, and doesn't keep track of where you left off. That last part makes it worthless.

Great start!

So far this seems to work well with DRM-protected epub. There's not really any other option for Adobe DRM out there that is stable. Hopefully we'll see more formatting options, bookmarks, and note taking in the future. But, for now, this is fine for my needs.

changed my review from 5 to 2

just realized that this app is available on IOs iPhone and android but not windows phone much less this app just went from 5 to 2 stars reason all the features I want are available on apple such as highlighting, creating your own color theme pages, sync bookmarks to other devices. On here the windows platform sadly its only for tablets and pc not windows phone. It only has all white page interface, no highlight, or change font. the only good positive thing I can say about the app that it supports protected epubs and pdfs and be able to safely read them. Until its updated like iPhone style I will give out the 5 stars

No manual book mark option. Will not remember the page you were on when closing the book, it always starts back at the beginning.
