I’m comfortable with either os. Bookari on IOS does not have most of the settings you have on Android. You can’t get rid of page curl and the curl drives me crazy, you have to accept that the only page turn touches are forward on right and backward on left (I like to use touches to page forward and swipe to page left). As far as I can tell, there is no difference between the paid version and the free one except for ads. IF Bookari would implement the settings from Android on IOS, I would use it.

I’d like to buy MapleRead SE, but I have one question:

Does it have that loading delay when switching to a new chapter? On the free version, there’s a “loading” animation and a small delay every time it loads a new chapter. This doesn’t happen in other ebook apps. I’d like to be able to use it without this delay.

Is it possible to quickly flip pages? Can I flip through five pages in one second if I wanted to? The free version has this long delay between page flips that makes it impossible to quickly skim through a book. Quick-flipping has its uses sometimes, like if I wanted to quickly look at a page four or five pages back.
Edit: I found the “instant flip” option. But it would be nice if there were still a fast animation to accompany a page flip, while also being able to flip as fast as I want through many pages. But the “instant” flip is okay I guess.

I do like everything else about MapleRead though.

But the animation should not bottleneck user input, which is what seems to happen in MapleRead. Even with a slowish animation, it should still be listening for user input and responding in a timely manner.

Even if animation is enabled, if I quickly tap five times to turn the page, it should flip through five pages, maybe overlapping the animations if it has to. See any version of KyBook for a nice example of this overlapped-animations behavior.
