  • One fix would make this a 5-star app

    This app is a nearly perfect e-reader. The layout/format is beautiful and the options are perfect for allowing you to customize it however you like. I have Marvin 3 on my iPhone and iPad. My only complaint (which is not insignificant - to me anyway) is that the sync feature doesn’t work at all. I would love it if I could be reading on my iPad, then later open my iPhone and have it “remember” my “last read” postion in the book. Instead, when I hit sync I get an error message that says that I’m not connected to iCloud. However, I AM connected to the iCloud on both the iPad and iPhone. Repeated emails to the app developer have been completely ignored. But overall, a very nice app. Hopefully the sync issue will be fixed one day.
  • Please refine the iPhone X optimization

    Really good and customizable reader! The only issue I see, is that it is not fully optimized for iPhone X - the stripe at the bottom does not hide, and the header and footer of the book cannot be enabled/disabled separately, meaning that with very narrow margins I either have a large unused space at the bottom of the screen, or the first line of text is covered by the "notch". When this is fixed, I would be happy to rate this 5 stars!
  • Crashes

  • Poor Customer Service, Does Upgrade Cover IPad & iPhone?

    Two messages to Marvin Support have not been replied to. So here is my question. I’ve paid for the Marvin 3 upgrade on my IPad. I’d expect like many other apps on the apps store that using it now fully on my iPhone that the paid status features would be granted there too. It seems not. Can anyone comment?
  • iPhone X support

    There is a line of text hidden behind the notch? How in the world did that get passed your testing?
  • Wonderful app, top notch

    I am used to be a fan of classical version. Then transfer to other app. Recently I got iPhone X. I looked for an app that could support X screen and then tried Marvin 3. So far I am very satisfied with my purchase. One thing I personally don’t like classical version because the classical version was sort of “complicated” and “fancy”. Marvin 3 looks like more simple, direct and less distracting. It can make me focus on reading. I like this app, but get one question: how can I find out the page numbers of the whole book. I changed the setting on EPUB settings. Some books show the whole book page numbers at footers. But in most case, it just shows charter page numbers even though I tired the custom setting. I used app to track my reading and page numbers would be more helpful.
  • The best ebook reader I’ve found.

    Vertical scroll, customizable fonts and page color etc, themes in the library view, iCloud syncing of page position, support for various cloud services for book importing, and gestures within books changes the brightness quickly (a more awesome feature than it sounds like!): most of these are the features that an ebook reader needs to support in order to be good, though the other major players don’t hit all of these marks. And Marvin has many more features if you should need them. The only thing missing is an easier sync of annotations and highlights. As it is, you have to manually send them from one device to another. Otherwise this is the perfect ePub reader, and definitely the best I’ve found.
  • Very nice app, but...

    The text to speech features are lacking. You have preset speeds to choose from that are either too slow or way to fast. It would be great if, holding down on the speed choice button would bring up a slider where the speed control could be fine tuned at .1 or .05 intervals. If you implemented this, I would definitely purchase the premium features. Other smaller issues: no variety of voices to choose from and the SIRI voice quality is a bit less than in other text to speech apps.
  • Great app... but some issues.

    Love the app, but you have glitches where the book skips multiple pages, like 20 or so, back and forth when you rotate reading view. Also occasionally you can’t read a newly imported book by tapping as you normally can. You have to shut app and re-open then fixed for a bit.
