I just downloaded the recent (v 2.3) update to Mantano Premium. It would not load, complaining about a problem with reading the database. Reinstalling the app did not help. Even a "clean install", involving deleting Mantano's data and cache, uninstalling the app, deleting the Mananto directory from the device, downloading and installing the app fresh did not help, producing the same "database" error (which makes no sense because I believe that I had deleted all Mantano-related data from the device before re-installing). Does anyone else have this problem?

System info: device: Nexus 7 (8 GB), OS: Android 4.2

The v 2.3.1 update appears to have fixed the problem. Thank you Mantano dev-team.
Actually I tried to purchase Mantano Premium yesterday, and I had deleted the trial version, when I downloaded the premium and it looked and seemed just like the trial version. So I returned and purchased the Moon + Premium and I like it better.

I also prefer Moon plus nowadays; vertical scroll, nice backgrounds, and better adjustable theme colors (bot day and night in one theme) but the most irritating thing about Mantano; it worked perfectly a year ago, since then there were lots and lots of updates that seemed to do nothing much except bring new bugs.
A week ago I had a long journey, and suddenly Mantano refused to open any book. That did it, I had Moon+ on my reader too, tuned it and preferred it since then, despite the 3 or 4 updates since then (one of them cured the bug, not sure about the rest) for Mantano.
Nevertheless, Mantano is a nice reader, was my favorite for a long time, but there are some overactive minds behind it lately.

I like TSS too! Also the color themes are really nice. It is easy to make font size bigger or smaller. Boomarking takes too many steps though, I wish you could just click the top right corner.

My problem with Moon Reader is that it's never read external style sheets correctly so you lose formatting. This may have been fixed by now.

Mantano does everything I need it to do. It even has collections!
I just paid the $10 a year and now it works like a Kindle. The Cloud feature is pretty neat syncing my books and collections with each device! I just wish the latest worked on the Kindle Fire v1. I am working with support but they have no device to test the problem with but they are trying to fix it.

Mantano 2.12 is the last version to work with Android 2.2
Mantano 2.3 is the last version to work with the Original Kindle Fire.

So I have 3 different Mantano versions on my devices. My phone is 2.2 so I am stuck now with 2.12 and the Kindle fire has 2.3 and my SGP5 has the latest version. All work well with no problem that I can tell. I do not use Mantano for PDF though only epub.

Just a tip. When Mantano acts up like not opening correctly a Force Close usually fixes it. Always back up your database too every so often.

How do you backup the database?

Just copy the DB file in Mantano's folder to a safe place.

Only the DB? Hmmm, must do that then.. I already had to rebuild my list once (after I upgraded and decided I didn't like the new version)...

All you do to downgrade is install the old version over the new one. Then go into Mantano's folder and delete the database you will see a file with the extension BK just rename it back to the DB extension or use a back up copy of your database. No need to lose anything.

Where do you get the old version to install?

You back up the apk before you upgrade. I use ES File Explorer's app manager to do this. I never upgrade an app without backing up the apk first.

Sorry, someone did tell me that before, but I could never get the ES FE to do it - that's why I forgot - I was hoping there was somewhere on the net that I could go get it. Thanks for the reply.

It's easy to backup an app. Just open ES File Explorer then hit
menu key/manger/App manager
Find Mantano in the list then long press and hit Backup.
It will then back up the app to apk on your SD Card in a
folder called Backups/apps.

Sometimes I just need to be led by the hand. Thanks so much - I'm good to go! Worked perfectly.

I do this for all apps before I upgrade. I then upload the backups to Dropbox so my phone or device doesn't get cluttered.

Yeah I read this after I stupidly saw I had two versions of an app in my backup and I deleted the old I do tend to throw things out before I should
