  • Seems to be a solid app.

    Just downloaded and been playing around with it. Seems like a great app glad I found it. Imports books faster then iBooks.
  • Amazing eBook Reader, with decent Comic Support

    By Jon Macchio
    I think this app is incredible and feature rich, and found the investment to unlock all the features with a one time in-app purchase reasonable. After reading the app description, I learned this is the first version with .cbr & .cbz support. When you combine a comic reader with this apps support for OPDS feeds, you’ve got a great way to quickly import multiple comics wirelessly with absolutely no trouble. My suggestions to make the comic experience better would be to implement a feature that allows double tapping the screen to zoom in and quickly bring the comic into edge to edge focus of the device display. Additionally for iPads, it would be awesome to allow for a two page layout in a landscape orientation. I look forward to the next update to full integrate into iOS 12!
  • Wish I’d never downloaded it

    I’ve been using the original Marvin for *years*. While not perfect, it was an excellent ebook app and I had no serious complaints. One of the most used apps on my iPad for nearly a decade. Over that time, I built up a library of over 4,500 books. When Marvin 3 came out, none of the features struck me as something I needed, so I left well enough alone. Until recently when I tried to transfer books from my Dropbox and discovered that feature was now broken in the original and would never be fixed since the dev team has moved on to 3. So fine, finally time to upgrade I thought. Paid the $4.99 and imported my entire Marvin classic library. Opened a book and it crashed. Restarted the app and it crashed. If I completely uninstalled it I could get it to open again, but as soon as I loaded any books into it crashed again. Somehow, in all this process it managed to “lose” my Marvin backup. I can no longer restore from either app, and even when I connect my iPad to a pc and browse the file structure, my backup is no longer there. So instead of having a great app that I’ve used for years I paid $5 for a broken app and lost ten years worth of book collecting. I guess it’s time to find a new ebook app altogether since Marvin went from being the best to being worthless.
  • Even better than Kindle app

    By HRV4TrainingUser
    I never thought I would find a reading app better than the official Kindle app, but this is hands-down the best reader app I’ve ever used. Trying to think of ways in which it could be improved would just be pedantic. Maybe it could support more formats; that would be the only area where it could possibly be any better. Definitely worth multiple fold what it costs on here. Dev, from one dev to another, great job.
  • Ok I was wrong!

    I am updating my review because my first writing was bitter and undeserving. First I will say that I let the sync issue screw my reaction to this app. I’m sorry for that. Sync needs work for sure. I found form posts dating back to like 2014 saying it’s being worked on so I’m guessing it’s as good as it will get. Moving the sync issue to the side. I decided to move away from the Apple or Amazon readers because they give you little to no control over the small touches one might like to add to their book library as time goes on. Marvin 3 truly is a work of art. Not many apps these days show the grace and care that is put into the app, but this one takes it to an entirely new level. After spending some time in both the iPhone and iPad versions and setting them up to exactly the same setup, I’m in love with this app. It’s beautiful, it’s so customizable in a way that’s a bit whimsical. The colors are perfect. The menus are well thought out. All the features are just mind blowing. The help sections are perfect and well thought out. This developer person or team put more then just hard work into this app, they put their heart into. SOME FEATURE REQUESTS: 1. Make the quick menu on the iPhone available when you swipe from the side of your screen, just a thought because I LOVE it on my iPad. 2. The obvious, finish the sync function for notes and such or at least book marks. 3. When adding the flags in the description, use the actual flag icon instead of text, the quick visual might help I think. THANK YOU so much for this app. Please do not let it go without updates. I would gladly pay for more updates.
  • Great reading app!

    Phenomenal app
  • Please fix this bug. Love this app

    By Ingenioussloth
    Love this reading app on my iPhone 7 plus. I recently upgraded to the iPhone max xs and I read in scrolling mode. I went to go highlight a piece of text and when I highlighted it the text went away. When I exit the book and come back the highlight comes back and is highlighted. This bug is very annoying and hoping for a fix soon. Love this app but this bug is ruining my experience while reading and highlighting text I enjoy.
