    Great app but a search feature would be great for when I'm looking for a particular book, instead of having to scroll through my entire collection!

    Works but not robust when compared to IOS and android version. No dictionary

    Great app, a proper reading experience on Windows Phone. The only niggles would be that it could use a download indicator to show how much of book is downloading, a visual indicator alongside each book to show how much has been read (as is done on iOS) and an option to reduce the size of the book listing so less scrolling is required to find the right book from the library.

    Need a fix to stop it going to screen lock if you don't read a page fast enough. Otherwise it works great

    Does not sync across all apps. Doesn't even show all your books. No tools or options. Very poor app.
