At last, we are prepared to introduce you an entirely updated, enhanced and improved book-reader app - FullReader. For a long time, we have been working under the 4-th version of the application, in order to make it at most stylish, convenient, stable and well-featured for our users.
Besides of improvement of familiar functions and tools, we have also implemented totally new and exciting abilities. Below we will try to thoroughly reveal and focus on what’s new in the actual FullReader 4.0
In addition to enhancement of visual reader layout, we have carefully thought over the location of all services, tools and sections, in order to make the usage of the product foremost transparent, clear and intuitive for each of the users.
Certainly, there are still fans of “wooden themes” among of you, but...we bade goodbye to ‘em, sorry for that :)
Updated file system of the app allows not only to seek, find and open the compliant formats, but also offers the full-scope featured base for any operations with files: copy, move, remove from the memory of the gadget, etc. Thanks to integrated scan function, you may quickly obtain the whole list of the formats, compatible with the book-reader, or only those of the formats, which you can select individually from the list. From now, new search within the system affords to identify the location of required book either by its title, author or file name. Besides, you are given a chance to clarify the search, by using the advanced parameters.
The library of the application represents all of your books, structuring them by such parameters as collections, favorites, recent, authors, categories, titles, series and all formats, which were selected during the recent scan. We will elaborate on a few of the sections in detail.
This function turned out to be the most advisable among the user community as a primary product enhancement. You dreamed of generating personal book sets? Here you go!:) Indeed, that is very comfortable and useful, that’s why, following the numerous requests, we have implemented this feature into the new build. More precise and specific info about the collections and instructions regarding operations with them can be found in FAQ chapter.
This section will be available to you both from library and from the main application page for quick and easy access to the most favorable and important of your books. All favorite books and documents are highlighted with colorful star sign. As well as the collections, this list is generated manually, considering your preferences.
One of the variants to store books without excessive usage of your device memory. You are eligible to get access to such services as Google Drive, OneDrive and DropBox.
Opportunities to read and operate with book text
Taking into account various reading forms, appropriate for particular formats, here we have deeply thought over the comfortable location of the tools, added the section for quick settings, which combines all the most frequently used settings: change font, its size, text color and background, switch between Day/Night modes, adjust screen brightness and perform a transition to advanced settings. In the lower part of the reading form all the most popular and actual tools are brought in.
Regarding the fonts and background, with the aim of your internal device memory economy, we refused from the idea to add them by dozens at once, but we added the ability to instantly download and use any of those after proper selection from the suggested list. In order not to catch an idea how to do it, you need to push hard :)
Reading aloud (TTS)
Besides of expansion of the formats list, where this feature is available from, we have also added several new settings and, certainly, improved the stability of the service operations. Timer will be designed in the nearest time, we are doing it all little by little, what should we do then?:)
Bookmarks and notes
In the primary app menu the new discrete section has appeared with bookmarks and notes. For the user’s convenience, from now on all bookmarks and quotes are grouped by each book separately. At last, following the multiple requests, we have designed an export of notes (quotes) into an external file. Furthermore, in the reading form you may view, switch and delete notes and bookmarks, related to currently open book.
Enhanced functionality, which allows to translate textual fragments directly from the reading form, without leaving it. With an update, the stability of the module has been increased, and now you don’t need to seek for and install dictionaries manually.
Day and Night reading modes
One more feature, available in former FullReader versions. In this update we apply colour scheme not only to the reading background, but also to the entire reading form as a whole, we also moved switching between modes into quick settings section, whereas after you go to advanced settings module, you will be able to set up the automatic mode switch, the same as before, by specifying the exact time for each of the modes to be activated. You can also find cool and stylish timepicker there, have a look on that!:)
Except visual appearance and stability, this module wasn’t concerned with major modifications. Everything works the same, as it did before – just attach your catalogue, find required books, download them and read.
Updated module, where besides brief info about the book, you are provided with miscellaneous tools to process the book in the proper way and operate with it. Now you can edit the title, add a book to collections or favorites, share it, etc. In this section you are also able to change the file encoding.
Shortcuts and widgets
The creation of widgets was possible before as well, and now we have added miscellaneous option to create book shortcuts. Of course, with new library you shouldn’t feel any difficulties with fast search of required book, but with shortcuts you acquire a truly WOW-effect with instant access to your current book.
We have thoroughly investigated the list of countries, where our book reader is being used the most and elaborated on the full-scope localization of the applet. Indeed, actually FullReader was translated on several languages before this release as well, but the quality of the translation itself could be severely better. Hopefully, this time everything is fine, but if you encounter with some mistakes or discrepancies – don’t hesitate to inform us!
Yeah, yeah, this topic has bothered our users a lot. No matter how sadly it sounds for you – in-app ads exist now and will be displayed in the future. Your micro-payments, which remove the ads from the applet, are our active budget for further enhancement of the project. It is joyful, that the majority of our users perceive this fact. Unexceptionally everyone could be glad to use a product for free. Also it should be bug-free, and “this button could be moved right there”, and “the icon has a wrong pattern, just do it as I ask you to”; at last, “the pages are ought to be turned in the opposite way, and under 23,75 degrees”. After all, here is a 1 point for you in the rating, negative feedback, and you should definitely be aware, that I am already removing you app!
You need to comprehend, that there is no charity in this area. It is truly pleasant to receive intelligent and clear remarks and suggestions from you; in fact, our support team is almost constantly working on-line in the daytime. We appreciate each of you, and looking forward to create really top-quality and useful apps for you, but we also need to evaluate our expenses for food, at least sometimes:)))
Certainly, as a matter of fact there’s much more work has been done, than it had been described formerly, and after all circumstances, the product has evolved into something absolutely different, but we won’t overburden you with excessive and complicated tech-related information. Nearly any of the functions and tools has been precisely described in FAQ.
