Searching for a Marvin alternative and your app is mostly mentioned. Tried it again today (free version) but just adding a book is so bad in the "upload a book" section. Still no way to select multiple books and add them in one go via dropbox/icloud. Also, is it possible to use the app without having to login?

With regards to hyphenation at no point did I say it was not important. I said at the time hyphenation was not a highly requested feature.(had a typo as highlight in previous post) We collect feedback across our support system, reddit , discord, surveys and https://bookfusion.hellonext.co/?sort=top and for some reason it was not highly requested so we prioritized accordingly. Personally, I have never used it but I do not observe very wide gaps. However, that is my personal preference/perspective not all other readers and this is why we made the reading experience customizable. It will be added, we placed it on our backlog


As I said, I understand it is very important to you and we will look at adding it. We have no issues there. Hope you understand. Thanks for the feedback JSWolf, hope you have a good day/evening today.
Most of those have nothing to do with making the reading experience better. All they (at most) care about is changes to how books are stored/handled. I would think that making the reading experience much better would be top priority. That should be what yoi care about most and then the other stuff.

BookFusion isn't it yet until it has hyphenation.

JSWolf,

Thank you for your input. We have heard you and will be adding it to be released in the next 2 weeks. Hope once this is released it gives us some good karma in your book that we want to make the reading experience much better.

We already have an upcoming release being reviewed by Apple so we won't be able to put it in that release but the next one in 2 weeks.

Selecting multiple books - This is an oversight and agree that you should be able to select more than one book at a time. This will be resolved in 2 weeks.


Dropbox/iCloud/One Drive/Google Drive - Support for uploading from these services will be added won't be within the next 2 weeks. Integration needs to be done not just with iOS but with Web and Android as well


Use app without login - Yes. You can use the app with all features unlocked for free without logging in with up to 10 eBooks. You can skip the sign up screen. This is currently for iOS only . (Android app needs to be refactored to support the same)

I want to say we are the best with EPUB 3 but try it for yourself with and EPUB 3 books you have and let me know what you think. You do not need to create an account. If any of your EPUB 3 books fail let me know and we can get it fixed.

But we implemented strong EPUB 3 support previously.

Really wish I can pay to unlock the 10 ebooks only without the need to login. I don't want to use your cloud service as I already pay for onedrive and icloud. Would also rather have my books on my phone.

Interesting solution

While I really like Calibre, I see value with the greater integration that BookFusion brings to the party.

I haven't tried the Calibre plug-in yet but I have a few questions/comments based on playing with your web app.

Formats
  • Are there any plans to support audiobooks? I would really like to have a common place to put all of my books!
  • Does BookFusion support multiple formats for a given book... similar to Calibre?
Metadata
  • Is there a way to update the metadata (similar to Calibre)?
  • I saw a discussion earlier in the thread about two-way sync back to a Calibre library. At that time, it didn't sound like that was supported. But the BookFusion website made it sound like it might be supported today. Is that the case?
  • Who can see our reviews of books? Only those who can see our books or everyone?
Who can see this book...
  • Can we "bulk" edit this book property? I could not find a way to do this.
  • Similarly, can we change the default setting for this property?
  • Like others earlier in this thread, I found the "T&C" language around "public" declarations of books to be confusing and scary. What happens if I accidentally make one of my purchased books public?
Duplicates - this becomes a concern with big libraries
  • Is there a duplicate checker feature?
  • Can duplicates be flagged when importing books?
Other
  • Can you export from BookFusion iOS app to other iOS reader apps (e.g., Marvin3)? I may end up liking your reader better but I haven't tried it, yet.
    API
  • I see that API mentioned on your site. Do you publish an API that we can use to write our own scripts/programs?

Thanks Much,
Scott
