I have noticed that when he attacks someone or something, it's providing feedback and when others provide him feedback, it's a personal attack.

As a developer, I hate it when someone tries to badger me into making some change that doesn't fit the design of the program. Yea, I heard you the first time you said it and I decided that it wasn't something that fit into what the program is suppose to do.

No program fits everyone's needs. If you have super specific needs, either write it yourself, or pay someone to write it for you. If you can clearly articulate what you want it to do, then it shouldn't cost more than $40,000 or so for a developer who is experienced in writing ebook reading programs.

And I'm pretty sure most e-book readers view annotations syncing as more important than 100% CSS fidelity. (Also, it wouldn't hurt to proofread your own posts before hitting the Submit button.)
Oh, the irony of berating Jon for his personal preferences, and then confidently claiming that most e-book readers think syncing annotations is more important, when it is surely just as much a personal preference. No wonder Kris gave up on Marvin.

Why a Textshot command not able to save the highlighted text to Photos in ios12?
Where as, Iam able to use the same command to tweet and save on my Notes app.

I left Marvin for FBReader. FBReader is cross platform which is a huge win for me. Other than changing font size, I don’t mess with anything with the text so some of the concerns people have about supporting everything EPUB don’t matter to me.

FBReader has a nice integration with Google drive for loading books as well as supporting OPDS. FBReader has support for Series.

I can change lighting with the drag of a finger...one of my favorite features all the way back to Stanza.

I can set both left and right margins to go to next page. FBReader even lets me set a small part of the left margin to go back.

And, of course, syncing across iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets. I like having the option to read on my Kindle Fire tablet.

Doesn’t have the Marvin “radar” (or whatever it’s called) that indexes all the words in a book allowing you to teach a character's name. Not essential but it was a nice to have.

Hi,
I was using the Sync location of a book iam reading few days ago.
Today I tried to do the same by hitting the Sync button on the progress bar but iam unable to mark the location.

Is the Sync stopped, which used to help in access the latest location of the same book on a different device?

Iam I missing something here?

Thanks.

You don't need to mark the location sync does that. It still works for me fine between my iPad mini and my iPhone.

Syncing does require linking via dropbox or iCloud. Once you are linked, syncing happens automatically. You use the sync button to look at the cloud and see what devices are at what locations rather than to store your current location. Thus if I have two devices and have been reading on device A, then pick up device B and open the same book, I use the sync button to move to where I was on device A.
