I've started a countdown timer to September 10th (the presumed Apple announcement day of new hardware and presumably iOS 7 prime time release). I am pumped for Marvin for iPhone.

Side note, I just talked my dad into getting Marvin for his iPad. He is a fan.

Wow...a member for a year and a half and Marvin gets your first post!! Sweet!!

I certainly wouldn't give up on Marvin for that reason....or any other - except maybe.....no, nothing I can think of!

Hey Kris,

New Feature Request
Is it possible to add custom info/tags to ebooks based on their download source?

For example:
If I go to the OPDS Library "Cuddly Bunny Kids Books" I would like to have any books downloaded from there automatically put into the "Kid's books" collection.

If I go to the OPDS Library "Cuddly Bunny Adult-ish Books" I would like to have any books downloaded from there automatically put into the "Not so kiddish books" collection AND locked with the parental controls lock.


What do you think...is it even possible?

Will Marvin work on older versions of the iOS? I haven't upgraded either my iPhone or my Mini since I got them.... Is there any specific advantage to do the upgrades to the newer os's?

I'm anxious to give the iPhone / Mini sync a try!!!

That question is especially important for iPad 1 users who cannot move on to iOS 7.

And before someone asks me to change my iPad, consider the fact that I cannot use professionally an iPad which is camera equipped for security reasons... This is what is keeping me from moving on to an iPad mini for instance...

This is why keeping compatibility with iOs 5 is mandatory for me even at the price of not upgrading...

I've worked in a facility where for security reasons cameras were not allowed. Several people had there cameras on their cell phones disabled by sanding the lens to render them useless. We special ordered blackberries without cameras.

Not an option for us... The Cameras are banished. Not even disabled one are considered acceptable. But we digress from the main topic here...

Yes, Marvin is perfectly happy with all iPads, including the first one.

The minimum requirement is IOS 5.

Yes... It is iOS 5 for now... The question rather was "will it stay that way ?"

I mean that Kguil seemed to imply that the new version would take into account iOS 7. If that is in addition to the older iOS 5 then, no complains (At least from me...) if it implies upgrading then I won't be able to...

I know that Kris has gone to great length to keep ipad1 in the game. I would think it would be so for a while.

I hope so... I would understand having to upgrade because of technical issues. But then if it is possible to keep the old version running, I am all for it !

Same version, some very minor features are not available in ios5, like Facebook sharing.
