This was reported as a bug some time ago. On my IPad mini, Marvin hardly ever opens where I left off, but is generally several pages out of sync. Just switching from landscape to portrait to landscape will cause it to lose its place.

After the flurry of activity when version 3 came out, Marvin support seems to have disappeared again.

My thoughts exactly. No updates since Fall. History with Marvin 2 repeats itself.

Perhaps, but then again, Marvin works pretty well for me and it was last updated about the same time that iBook was last updated. I think we all know that Marvin is more of a hobby in terms of revenue for the developer rather than a means of putting food on the table.

I recently obtained some 4th quarter 2016 revenue metrics for three eReaders. Only paid versions were included, not free or trial versions: Marvin 3, Hyphen, tiReader Pro.

The total quarterly revenue for the 3 apps was $5.6k. An average of about $20/day per app!

Definitely not much food on the table!

Update: 1st quarter 2017: $6.2

This happens to me, too, no matter which iDevice I'm using. I haven't been able to figure out what causes it either.

Every time I turn off the tablet, or hit the home button to do something else, then open the app again, the book I'm reading is one page behind.

Is any of them better than Marvin?

PS: 1.8k$ a month passive income - Move to Thailand or a low cost location (aka Digital Nomad style) and live a life of luxury..

Year to date, Marvin has generated more revenue than all the other eReaders.

I sure hope Kris hasn't become a nomad and moved from Malta!

Hope to connect with him in future PS: Is Marvin still the best ePub reader on iOS?

Which ones are "next" in line - just to know?

Might want to ask that in the general section...probably not too PC to ask in the Marvin forum what the best competitors to Marvin are... lol

But, IMHO, Marvin is still by FAR the best iOS reader!!

Why not? Remember Stanza? And remember the long quiet period at the end of Marvin 2? I agree that Marvin is still the best iOS reader, but nevertheless I am permanently checking alternatives.

You're more than welcome to check....who's going to stop you?? But how good of a reception do you think you would get if you went to....oh, say..... a Ford dealer and started asking them about all the advantages in a Chevy? Probably not going to be a very long conversation....

I also think it proper to discuss this somewhere else. You might want to take a look at this thread.
