  • Great! ... Except...

    By Vigilante4200
    This would be the perfect app for reading ebooks except you can't create an account and sync multiple devices automatically...
  • I’ve tried them all

    I’ve tried a *ton* of different e-reader apps, from the obvious to the obscure, and nothing else comes close to the flexibility, attention to detail, and straight up usability of Marvin. Just get it. Learn it. You’ll never look back.
  • Finally an iPhone X interface for a reader!

    This may be the perfect cloud reader. Comics, ePub, etc. + clean interface that’s iPhone X optimized (I hate the legacy rectangle displays - they seem SO outdated now - like trying to use an iPhone 4 when the 6 came out). Also, there is a cloud picker option, so you’re not limited to iCloud or Dropbox as the description suggests.
  • almost perfect

    as other commenters have said, would be simply magical if it synced across devices. otherwise my fave reading app, esp. since my eyesight is meh and i can customize fonts and line-spacing until i can read without issue
  • Favorite ebook reader

    It’s fast, stable, and highly customizable. Once set up it gets out of the way and just lets me read. That’s so refreshing compared to some of the more established alternatives.
  • What did I pay for?

    By Katainthedark
    I love Marvin 3, I started using it after support for Gerty became nonexistent but the “tips” make no sense. I paid $4.99 to remove the banner yet if I want all theme colors I need to leave a fabulous tip of ANOTHER $4.99. I can’t seem to figure out what I paid for, surely banner removal can’t be that much on its own? Why not have the option to pay once to buy all features? Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem supporting Marvin 3 since I paid to remove the banner but I think it’s a bit ridiculous to pay $10 to access all these things. The Dark theme is adequate for now but I do wish I could access others.

  • Rich in features, beautifully designed

    The design is nice, making it easy to find content. The out-of-the-box settings are carefully considered, making for a welcome reading experience. Most of my ebooks render as expected. As someone that reads a lot of non-fiction for both work and education, I’m quickly coming to appreciate a number of useful features that Marvin has. Like most e-readers, it allows bookmarks, highlights, and annotations. Unlike many e-readers, however, it supports multiple colors for bookmarks and highlights, and also makes it easy to paste the highlighted text into the note. There is an upgraded version, and I’ll likely purchase it to support ongoing development. But outside of a relatively non-invasive footer that encouraged you to upgrade, the freeware is polite: there aren’t any distracting or disruptive advertisements. One feature I really wish Marvin had was the ability to automatically synchronize highlights, annotations, and bookmarks across devices. It does allow manual synchronization of location across devices, and it also allows the export and import of annotations, but it doesn’t allow automatic synchronization. This is the only missing feature that has prevented me from purchasing the full version, or giving a full five star rating. Despite that, for a free e-reader, this is significantly better than other options available, such as the popular ePub Reader. It’s also better than Amazon’s Kindle app for non-Kindle content. (For rights-managed Kindle e-books, Amazon’s app is not only necessary, but also does a nice job of synchronizing across devices; it does neither for uploaded content, though.) That said, some worthy competitors worth considering include Google Play Books (which isn’t as feature rich, but works really well) and Hyphen (which promises annotation synchronization).
  • Requiring iCloud Drive for location sync is a no go

    By Flash3581
    I don't understand why this app can't sync using Dropbox or one of the other supported cloud services. My employer disables iCloud sync, so I cannot use book location sync.
  • Would you please fix the notch??

    By Narual
    Can’t read in landscape on my iPhone 10 because you haven’t programmed to handle the notch. :(
