Loving it already! You guys rock! Looking forward to getting the update on my other devices.



P.S. Please seriously consider coming out with a phone. Although I have a Hisense A2 Pro and am hoping to get the new A5, I would much rather have such a device with your firmware on it.

I was just about to ask if anyone else has seen this update pop up on their device. Just saw it on my Note Pro today but didn't see anything on the site about it. Nice!

Could you please put the model that these announcements apply to in the thread title. This would mean that we don't end up opening a thread (and getting our hopes up) only to discover it applies only to a different model from the one(s) we own.

Question

On the Note Pro after the update, in the apps section if I hold down on an app I now only have the options of Delete and Manage for each app and Optimize is gone. Is the only way to optimize an apps setting by using the Navigation Ball now. I would note that your "auto" optimizations settings are never the best for me so not being able to easily fix an app so it looks the way I would like is super annoying. Not sure why this disappeared. Please add it back in the next update.

Also when will NeoReader get the ability to tell you when the end of the current chapter is near rather than just the end of the book? The app obviously knows where the chapter ends because its in the TOC its just not available at the bottom of the page which would be very useful to a reader.

And also it seems like in Optimization under the Navigation Ball a lot of the old options are gone now which is annoying. Why is there no ability to adjust the Contrast by app? I see there is a Global Contrast function on the home page but now I can't adjust the Contrast by app? Come on

Edit: I found it, its called Gamma now under enhance Font Color

Yes, some of the changes to the optimization function are a bit disappointing.

For most apps, I like to uncheck the Full Screen feature so that I can easily get out of an app and back to the home screen.

Before, this process was relatively straightforward.

Now, I have to enable the Full Screen option on the Navigation Ball and then press it when inside the app. It seems counter intuitive to be pressing Full Screen when you want to be exiting Full Screen mode. It also doesn't work for some apps. Which means you often have to press the physical Back button to escape from the app, sometimes you have to do this multiple times to get out of an app.

There really should be a Home Screen option available for the Navigation Ball.

That is weird indeed, it also does not work for me anymore. Most likely the site is not maintained enough. I did use it a lot of times before and it provided a full-speed download. There are other methods using IDM and some Greasyfork scripts but I never had a success.
