I really like Alternate Reader, it's a very useful program. Thanks for writing it!

There's one thing which gets in the way though. The screen backlight keeps turning off while I read a document (I use the program to read long PDFs). The maximum timeout I can set in my phone for keeping the backlight on is 1 minute, which is way too short to read a whole page, which means I need to scroll around a bit at most every one minute to keep the backlight from turning off. Very annoying.

Alternate Reader should have an option to keep the backlight always turned on while the program is running, so that I can read documents without having to worry about having to touch the screen every minute.

I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that already (then it's a bug), or if it would be a new feature. My phone is a Nokia 5230, running Symbian S60 5th edition.
