eReader Prestigio: Wrong Titles from Web

Anyone using the eReader Prestigio app for Android? There are a lot of things I like about it, but I've noticed it consistently displays the wrong title when downloading epubs from the web.

Prestigio accurately parses/displays personally epubs that are personally owned, loaded from Calibre Companion/Calibre Cloud, and downloaded to a watched folder.

When downloading an epub from an online site, specifically Archive of Our Own, the downloaded book shows up with a different title. Additionally, the percentage read amount is past 25% and the book opens to a random page in the middle of the story. Strangely the book title shown is always something that has been downloaded before but has since been deleted (both from device storage and from browser download history).

I know the new book has downloaded correctly because (along with working fine for the million other apps I've tried) when viewing book info, the path directory lists the correct book title.

This is happening with downloads from both Firefox and Dolphin. I've never encountered this before and the issue seems specific to Prestigio. Anyone else encountering this and have ideas on how to fix it? It's much more irritating and confusing than you might expect.

I've been using this app for the past few days and have not had this problem, but I have had others. For instance, I can't create collections because of a permissions error. I've tried contacting the people behind the app, but haven't received an answer yet. I also tried their knowledge base/FAQ on their website, but it brings up a Forbidden access error when I try to look at anything other than the main page.

I really like this app and hope things can be fixed with it.

That's a bummer. I never could figure out my title issue and, since I also successfully identified my page swipe problem in Moon+ and accepted its spacing problems, I've switched back to that recently. Prestigio's pretty nice, so they should definitely work on their support side. I didn't hear back from them either.

I just tried and I was able to create collections on mine. They leave 'My Books' and only appear within that collection though which was unexpected. Forgot how pretty the white brick background was. Good luck to you.

[Actually, I just had 2/2 successful titles appear. Perhaps I'll try this out again for a bit. Maybe that means your collection issue will magically fix itself?]

Well, nevermind. Titles misbehaved again about six hours later. I think they worked at first because EP had no recent import/download memory or something. Bummer.

I'm sorry to hear you're still having issues. I am as well. I haven't heard back from them either. The app looks great, but I'm unable to use it. I've switched to Aldiko. I like Moon+Reader, too, but it doesn't format things properly. You know how some books have multiple sections within the same chapter? Moon+Reader just makes those sections run together with no space between them to distinguish time/pacing (if that makes sense). I haven't figured out how to stop it from doing that.
