Now that's what I call valuable feedback :)
I did not look into the empy list problem with RC2.
Also RC2 currently always reshows the first page when turning the device while reading.

I'll make a final RC3 with all the fixes.

I rarely read in portrait mode, so I didn't notice. After reading 2-3 comics, I personally dislike how the first page is shown, so maybe that could be an option the users can turn off?)
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

OK just uploaded RC 3.

All the fixes are in there.
And I added your show cover option :)

I hope this is the last one. I want to put this baby out tomorrow.

yup, all seems to work fine now (and thanks for the cover option!)




PS- I do have a life, but email notifications and sitting in front of the pc preparing lesson material mean I'm easily distracted :P
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Hey cYo

Running rc3 at the moment, feels very polished and smooth. The new hovering sidebar is great. I also like the new view mode (long press on style), but the discoverability of this feature is very limited. I only realized it was there after reading the feature list twice - the first time i didn't even know what you meant by "style button". Should be more obvious, perphaps by changing the button text to reflect that mode.

Also, on the widget, the refresh and wifi buttons are very easily hidden by the cover color. They should be a more contrasting color to increase visibility. As they are now, a cover with any white will make them invisible.

I just uploaded RC 4. This one should fix the last bugs (mainly color adjustment and transition stuff).

The findability of the compact function is currently by design as I'm still no quite OK with the looks. The widget icons are by design so transparent. The should not distract from the cover.

The new options and UI tweaks all look really nice. My favorite addition so far is the deck transition, since it feels more like flipping pages.

However,another problem of findability is: even after I read that you could pin the sidebar menu, I had to toggle the blank circle icon a few times before realizing that's what it was supposed to do.

I thought the circle was quite obvious.
How would you make this more "findable" short of a dialog box saying "press this to dock the sidebar".

I thought I'd chime in on the great additions added to CRA over past few months. I love the way that you can side scroll from list to list which I assume came from v1.69, I love the addition of the build number added to About section in v1.70, I love the Sidebar and its left edge slide hide/show feature added in v1.71.

The app as a whole when it comes to moving around between lists seems to be much more smooth. I haven't had time to read much since the last few versions have been released, but I'll comment on the reading functionality as soon as I get some reading time.

The app feels twice as rich in features with just the features I've commented on along with the improved smooth flow. You are a beast this year so far when it comes to updates cYo (+karma coming your way today)...keep up the great work!
