Thanks for the app; very nice look and feel, better than Stanza, Goodreader or iBooks but I have the freeze problem when I leave the program.
Hope you find a fix soon.
What I would like to see is a clear indication of where I am in the book, always on screen (eg) a bar at the bottom or the top? This would, I think, be better than a page number and provide a better reading experience.
The other thing would be the ability to reduce the margins even further - even at the lowest setting, margins remain wide and the number of words on the page is still sometimes very small with some ebooks. (unless there is some other way of getting around this? Any advice very welcome.)
When we "set" margins, we don't actually futz with the publisher's CSS, we just "inset" the whole page. The "smallest" margins are only a few pixels inset. So it is likey the formatting of the books. We might need to be a bit more "aggressive" when a user turns off "Use Publisher Formatting" which currently would maybe be better labled "Over-write specific, standard CSS selectors and hope the publisher did not get fancy with CSS selector names"
