I got a notification for the latest version yesterday (11/17/2015--I use this prog so much I MUST stay updated) and at first everything I tried to load brought a "Failed to load" error and an instant crash. But after restarting, it worked just fine, so not sure why that happened. But just wanted to say this is the best version yet and it shocked me that I was no longer limited to a small sized reader on my Win7 x64 screen. That alone was worth the dl. Thank you so much! The "Just OK" rating for support is because I have no idea what support is like. Never needed it (though I thought I did yesterday).
DTS-06052013:11:13 Hello, On MSW732B, the application fails because the programmed calls assume to originate from logged user directory rather than program directory. Therefore, the database SQlite is never found. It was discovered when the extraction directory was changed. Furthermore, it doesn't call elevated permissions on MSWV32B+ as needed; meaning it would fail anyway. I'm not sure what kind of reviews are on Sf, but one-liners are often bought! Thank you, --- MMS
This is a great book reader for my android phone. I wish it was available for Window 7 64b, or Windows 8.1. I love that I can enlarge the print for easier viewing without my glasses, and I really love that I can use the read aloud function so I can do other things while listening. The voice is great, sounds real and I don't mind listening to it. I don't have any problems switching back and forth between books, although occasionally it stops working (what doesn't?). I am really glad to have found this app.
Superb book reader!
(Linux version) Very good reader, especially support of DOC format. The weak point is an interface customizing, such as inability to hide all control elements in fullscreen mode, setting up own hotkeys and textures.
