What's New

A beautiful revamp to the browser, a faster, cleaner better reader, enormously improved downloading, and more. Plus: reviews, ratings, and registration!

* Reviews & Ratings. No longer do you have to guess about books- check out the ratings and reviews of your fellow readers and post your own reviews!

* Better Downloading. Some folks were having download issues on certain wifi connections- we've rebuilt our download manager from the ground up to resolve it! Everyone should see faster, better, more stable downloading across the board.

* Reader. It's gone through a significant visual tightening, and is now an absolute joy to read with.

* Browsing. Lots of little changes, including separate Authors, Collections, and Genres options at the top, ratings in the book lists, a new book information view, and, naturally, the ability to look up reviews on books in the collection.

* iOS8 support
