    Can't even take notes on the phone

    There is no way to bring up the menu without pushing the phone's built in back button, going to the book screen, and selecting your book again. Also has problems with skipping around in the book.

    This is not a perfect product, but it is the only major book reader on the Windows phone and I appreciate its existence. It still makes me adjust text size from time to time when a couple lines of text don't get displayed, but that is minor, because at least I am reading the book. What I would like to see added is a dictionary and the ability to select, mark or highlight and copy text, and add notes. This is the only place I can buy and read my books between all three handheld platforms, iOS, Android and Windows phone. And so I have decided to use it over Apple's and Google's book-sales readers.

    It wont open, it just goes to the load screen for half a second then crashes again. When it does work i love it though.

    I liked this app until it stopped syncing. Fix or consider it uninstalled.

    Need Update now !!!!

    It started out by not having a black night background option but that option has now been included, so I couldn't be happier. It's the second best thing after owning an actual e- reader, which doesn't need background light and which battery lasts considerably longer. Great still!

    It won't even let me buy a book... What is the point if I can't get a book to actually read?
