    I've purchased a year 's issues. But after one update, they're lost and can't be restored. I emailed the customer service. And no response. Too disappointed.
  • Previous version was a lot better.

    A good thing is that now you can read articles on iPhone. Other than that, previous version was a lot better. There is no magazine feel to it.
  • Please fix bugs imediately

    After upgrading to iOS8, I couldn't read books on my iPad2 and iPad mini. So, I deleted the app and reinstalled, several times. I could read the books on iPad mini, but on iPad2, I couldn't.
  • Not bad,,,but needs to improve UI

    By nkzwshg
    This app is very different from usual e-book, designed specifically for electronic format. It is amazing and a fun to play with though, the User Interface needs refinement. Now it is hard to find buttons to navigate where I want to go. Nevertheless, I would like to admire the efforts to change our concept on e-books.
