Getting concerned about Marvin and upcoming iOS 15 update

I’m getting more concerned about the integrity of my library and the upcoming iOS 15 upgrade in Marvin. Since Marvin doesn’t seem to be getting anymore updates or development has completely stopped I’m seriously wondering whether we should transfer our libraries over to Bluefire or whatever that’s still being developed out there. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this issue. How to safeguard your library and planning to transfer it to any other iOS apps that read epubs?

Marvin has been working fine with the beta. With that said, eventually it's going to stop working. Certainly, you should have your library backed up somewhere so you won't lose anything if something happens to your phone. I keep all my books in calibre on my desktop, so when I need to move to a new app, I can do so fairly easily.

Me too!

Marvin is very well programmed. It would take a MAJOR change (and I don't mean just going from 14 to 15) to make it stop working completely - something like going from kobold to C++ would do it.

At worst I could see a minor function that relies on a 3rd party to fail because Apple tries to lockdown their control even more.

We have had a few users switched from Marvin to BookFusion for the same reason you mentioned. Development is active and significant improvements have been released this year. Take the iOS app for a spin at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/bookfusion/id1141834096 and let me know what you think.

We also had a release last week that had several improvements.
