This is a great app. Thank you very much for making it. Yours is the only app I've found that has user-customizable hardware button bindings and no animation. It works perfectly on my prs-t1.

However, there are some features I'd like to see implemented.

1. (solved)

2. Auto-cropping. Ebookdroid (code.google.com/p/ebookdroid) has implemented this feature in version 1.3 and it works very well. Perhaps you could look at their code to see how it's done. I believe their project is very similar to yours.

3. The possibility of combining manual cropping and auto-cropping. It would be nice to start out with manual cropping to exclude artifacts from the margins (smudges, annotations, etc.) and then let the auto-cropping feature complete the cropping nice and close to the next.

4. (solved)

5. (solved)

6. (solved)

7. (solved)

8. Continuous page mode as in Adobe Reader for Android and Ebookdroid. This uses screen space more efficiently and less page turns for longer battery life.

Thanks again for your good work.

You might want to update your help file to make this clear.

I assume the brightness and dark/light themes are not meant for e-ink devices.

Open recent is a nice feature, and overlapping is also a good idea. Thanks.

Your implementation of odd/even page cropping works very well, especially when one defines touch zones to quickly add or remove space from margins.

I'm looking forward to autocropping to get rid of that extra bit of space that one must leave when using manual cropping to avoid cutting off part of the text on subsequent pages that are slightly off-center. Scanned books tend to vary from page to page, but with combined manual and auto cropping the results can be very good.

Thanks for your good work.

heya,

I noticed that the last Nook Classic build is for 0.29.0.

Is there a build of the newer 0.29.3 for Nook Classic devices? Or am I able to load the general 0.29.3 APK onto these devices?

Cheers,
Victor

I just tried this app and I must say it has come a LONG way. It makes reading large PDF on small screens very nice. It's also the only PDF reader I've seen that loads faster than RepliGo.
