I personally don't use the sync functionality - I use Calibre for management/download and only read on one device - so I haven't noticed anything. If all your devices went down at the same time, and Marvin hasn't changed, then I would suspect Apple playing their games again.

Please let us know if you figure it out!

I spent some more time trying to get sync in Marvin 3 to work under iOS 15.1. It turns out that it does sometimes work, but it's only perhaps 10% of the time. When it fails it seems to time out and then get rate limited.

This feels a bit like an iOS bug. I haven't come up with a reliable workaround. I think at this point I'm probably better off waiting for the next iOS update before trying again.

Missed this response.

We answered this in our thread under reading management previously. As we mentioned we designed the app to allow seamless syncing of eBooks, highlights, notes and reading progress across all devices and to share eBooks seamlessly with friends and family(currently in beta). To do this we need an account to connect and sync between devices. It was much easier to build our own sync mechanisms than relying on integrating with Google Drive or other services.

We would need to refactor the app to not require an account but at the current phase, the time is better spent improving it and adding new features for our current readers. We plan to do the refactoring to not require an account for those that might not need syncing and other functionality.

Also, you are one of several (one-and-only post) people who have come here bringing up this topic. If you are NOT a bot for the OTHER ebook software trying to get free advertising (welcome to MR!! ) then I would recommend using the search function on this forum, or scroll down the list of thread topics.

Cheers!
Haha, hope you are not referring to me responding to the messages. Doubt the users are bots, I think they just discover the same issues over and over between Kybooks and Marvin not being updated and before searching the forums they decide to post. The mods would definitely be able to tell if they were bots.

I do search for the relevant topics or responses every other month and respond if I think we can add value though.
