This is a great app! I use it all the time, and really enjoy my experience. Although sometimes I wish that I could make the text bigger or smaller. Sometimes the text is hard to see. Overall, great app!!

Would be a great and useful app, but there are no gestures for zooming and pinching, nor any other way of increasing the size of the text on a tablet. On my Dell Venue 8 Pro, I have to take off my glasses and hold it close to my face in order to read it. Thank goodness for being near-sighted or I'd have to use a magnifying glass. This seems like a really basic functionality to leave out in this day. And it hasn't been fixed since I first tried the app in 2014. It's a real pity. With hi-res mobile devices of various sizes, you'd think that gestures for focus and zoom would be a basic.
