Stanza Finally Dead?

After all the drama and corporate/Amazon sabotage of Stanza, is it finally dead?

I've just - perhaps belatedly - discovered that attempting to access its settings under iOS 6 results in an endless round of crashing and bizarre behavior.

I'm assuming that's the end of it, and that the best reader of iOS is no more. Has anyone found differently?

It seems that I can do everything except enter the settings menu on the info tab (the one with the gear), at which point I have to kill it...

I can't think of any behavior that I'd really NEED that would be in that menu [nor do I know what was there], so it's not a fatal blow, but it's another nail.

For me its dead; not being able to tweak the settings makes it unusable.
I kind of like iBooks lately, the vertical scroling is nice, and the cheesy page emulation is long gone.

I find that the settings I use most are still available to me (the colours and font settings) so not being able to do anything with the others makes no difference to me. You can access *some* settings from inside a book, but don't try to get to "Layout" or "General": you'll have to reboot.

I didn't have to reboot, just kill the app. Hit home a few times (the first one doesn't work for some reason), then do the double tap home, hold, and kill.

You sound like my son. "I don't want it and I don't want my friends to have it either"

Selecting Stanza just results in a blank screen for me.
