Oops, Code=400

I downloaded the free version onto my iPhone to read an ebook in Dropbox. When I connect to Dropbox, I get an “Oops” with a code 400. I can’t find anyplace to report errors.

Too. Limited

Sadly this version is way too limited. You can only see one(1) book at a time in the library. The whole point of me see ing If I like this program is to see how good the library system is and one book just doesn't cut it. I can understand a limited library (10 to 20) but one book viewing doesn't allow that. Would be nice in the author sort menu if you could preview the title of a book or 2. 1/2 the time I forget the authors name, but can remember based on a couple of book samples where a book I want is. Bugs: crashes if trying to connect to calibre and forget to turn on the calibre end the connection Shuffle books does not work (dice icon) Searching for a book does not work (is fine in the "all book" menu, but doesn't any where else that I've tried) edit: never mind doesn't work here either Really needs quick scrolling on the author/author sort/unread/selector (when you hit the upper right icon to bring up display options). The right side would work great for that because there is a lot of empty space. It would also be nice if there could be quick selection there for quick selecting a collection or something like that

Really good
Christopher Marios

If only the book limit was like 5 or so.

Awesome app
Omar Vassel

Best ebook reader I've had since the old Stanza. I can't imagine it doesn't have anything a user could want. Worth it.

The new standard in e-reader apps

This app is amazing. So fluid. Very customizable reading page. Excellent library management options, wired and wireless. Calibre integration. Easy to use. ! Try this, and you WILL get the full version really soon. I know I am.

Get the paid version

This app was horrible with ads, get the pro version, VERY nice and best I have seen.

Print too small

I have been unable to determine how to increase the font size. As it is, I am unable read what is displayed. That makes it of no value to me.

Ad Sub

What a great app to read! I just wish you could see what page you are on in the book.

The reading app

This is the app all readers have been waiting for. This is exactly what iBooks should be. Great customization options for text font, size, and color. You can adjust brightness. I've been a big fan of this app since it was first released on iPad. It's the only thing I read on now.

No connection

Marvin seems OK, but I can't connect to see any calibre books. I can browse the calibre library server in Safari on the iPhone, but Marvin hangs on a 'Ready...' screen. It seemed like it might be a good way to organize books between devices, but simply browsing on Safari to share between devices seems to be the way to go for me.
