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
Extremely poor interface. Cannot figure out how to add books. Deleted within 5 minutes of use.
This concerns use with Windows XP: Versions 3.X can't be used with XP: - latest new-UI version could not be coupled to epub extension as standard application. - it cannot be opened on itself when unpacked, only from within zip archive. Never saw this before. - 3051 could be opened, but not open a file as associated application - version 2 opens epub files as an archive with pages, images etc as archive entries. Pretty useless. Installation of sumatraPDF, as the first alternative at hand, worked like a charm.
Could not use it, because there is no .rpm package for Fedora/Redhat/Suse/CentOS linuxes. Furthermore for the long run, I will only use it when it will be maotly mature, i.e mostly stable (no crashes) and close to major bugs free. On Linux, I use excellent Okular (+ plugins) to read almost anything (pdf, mobi, epub, djvu ... and many more!) files. Okular is fast, reliable (never crash), and well designed. Unfortunately Okular is not availble on Windows/Mac... too bad. I will try Cool Reader as soon as a RPM package will be available. There may be a value there. I also will try it very soon on windows 7. A.G
It was a great app till the last update ( see the bug #309 Regression after the last update ) ...
