Guys, pehkay had already posted the answer above. This has been known for many months that non-updated apps would go dead in terms of Dropbox interaction by September 28th. The same thing has just happened to my Dropbox-based voice recorder app on Android, so I had to find a different voice recorder app on Thursday, because the developer just stopped developing the original voice-recorder app. Fortunately, Dropbox isn't really essential for Marvin – you can always load books from Dropbox to Marvin "the other way around" (by launching the Dropbox app and opening books from there in Marvin).

By the way, in a similar vein, the Google Drive cloud-picker in Marvin stopped working for me a year ago or so, so I also need to go "the other way round" via the Drive app when I wish to open a book in Marvin.

Faterson, I am a moron and do not understand about the "other way around" . I use Dropbox to move my books from Calibre on my computer to Marvin on my iPad. How can I still do that with the error 400 message?

Thanks for these insights. If there's any updates on such matters please do share.

I was down with some domestic & health issues so all these things had to take a back seat.

Is Marvin still the best in terms of eBook Highlighting & Reading?

PS: Is there any match or near equivalent in the Android/ Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet world as an alternative (if/ when one gets both iOS iPad & Kindle 8)?

Loving Marvin does not mean we cannot look for or keep abreast of LESSER or upcoming alternatives as a Backup.. Right?

Will post there too

We only notice the page flip when we reopen the book the next time.

I believe this is the cause because Marvin also often flips pages for me – when it shouldn't – when I make highlights, or when I simply tap a word towards one of the edges of the screen (right, left, top, or bottom) to look up its definition, etc.

Other than this concern, I'm posting my reaction to the last few pages of this thread as a separate post, titled The Status of Marvin:

You know, Marvin's development has – once again – slowed down to such a crawl I now only find it necessary to visit MobileRead (or this subsection of it) twice a year or so. And so, see you all later in 2018, I guess. Happy Christmas!
I was gone for an entire 1.5 + years ..yikes!
