Interesting.

The tap in the lower right corner doesn't work.

The tap in the upper left corner doesn't work.

Taps/presses in the left, right, top, bottom page edges do nothing.

Upward swipe scrolls pages backwards.

Have you ever seen a book reader for a touch screen before?

Also, I noticed that you use Calibre software, but there is no mention of that fact on your website. That is in violation of the Calibre license.

@Sarmat89 You have to click on the arrow to turn the page when using the web reader on your tablet/phone.

Our native iOS and Android apps allow you to navigate to the next page using a tap to go to the next page.


However we do automatically convert different formats using Calibre and other tools.

I'm very interested in your product, but in looking over your "FAQ" you don't provide what I assume would be the most frequently asked question: how much does this cost? What is a free vs premium account? And what are your discounts for early adopters?

Frustrating and makes me a little leery. Thanks.

Speaking as user:
>What is a free vs premium account?
3 differences I found out when was non-premium:
- per-book file limit on upload via web site (I didn't checked in-app upload and plugin didn't exist at this
- limit to number of books.
- nag screen with offer of premium (after a lot less number of books than limit) on web

1)How much does it cost?

It costs $4.99/month or $39.99/year for early adopters/readers

2)What is a free vs premium account?

Free accounts have the following limits:
*100 or less eBook limit
*Subscription popup
*Limited use of the Calibre Sync Plugin

3)With premium accounts there are no limits on the account

what are your discounts for early adopters?

Currently discounted a mentioned in #1. Early adopters will forever be charged the early adopter price as mentioned above. However new readers beyond the early adopter phase will be charged $8.99/month or $60.00 per year

Just downloaded this app on an iPad, Likebook Mars and Asus Zenpad Z8 to give it a whirl. Some early comments.
On the iPad - looks good and performs well. Reading settings are rather sparse.
Likebook Mars eink Android tablet - works ok but slow getting going, this is the same overall performance for every other app on it too, so not bad in comparison. Reading settings are sparse also, even including no font selection which is offered on the iPad.
Zenpad Z8 - works well with the same shortcomings as noted for the Likebook.

Uploading of books is a bit of a chore and needs to be re-thought. There should be a method from within the app and not only from the website IMO.

The subscription model may be a big detriment to adoption IMO.

Thanks for trying and providing feedback Lparsons21. To answer your comments

1. iOS Reading Settings - We recently added additional fonts. What other features would you like to see for reading settings

2. Android Reader - An updated app will be released next week that adds support for custom fonts when reading similar to iOS

3. Uploading of eBooks from Devices - Correct. A new version of the app will be ready in Q1 that allows you to better organize and bulk upload books directly from your device

4. Subscription Model - We do not sell ads , nor our users data so ask for a reasonable $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year for unlimited use and number of uploaded eBooks.

Would you prefer a freemium option but be open to viewing ads? Most platforms that offer free based services monetize users via order channels so the user pays indirectly.

Thanks again for taking our apps for a spin. Feel free to reach out if you have any additional feedback.

I’d like to see things like page turn animation toggle and margin and line spacing. The animations are fine on lcd screens, not so good on any eink device I’ve seen.

Good to hear of the upcoming improvements.

As to which is better, subscription or freemium, it is hard to say which is better but possibly a freemium version with an upgrade to subscription to drop ads and offer the other benefits might work better for you. As to what is a reasonable subscription price, well the market will tell you that over time.
