  1. Add more usage tracking data for "quantified self" purposes

    I've gotten really into tracking various metrics of my life, such as physical activity, browsing history, music listening habits, sleep, etc. The next frontier I would like to add to this is my reading. It would be really cool if this app gave me access to raw data on the specific times I read specific pages and made various annotations, like a browser history for my ebook reading. At the moment, there aren't any other apps that really scratch this itch for me. Kobo comes closest, but I want to access the raw data to play with, not just look…

  4. Seamless ePub reading

    I love how this app handles pdf files and I love the style of note taking and highlighting. It could, however, use some improvement when it comes to ePub files. It still gets the job done but I would like to see it handle the ePub files more seamlessly, similar to iBooks. For example, it would be nice if linked references pop up in the main screen rather than jumping to a different page. I realize they show as notes in the margin but it's not quite the same. Maybe it's just me though.

  5. Highlighting toolbox shouldn't cover any text

    When highlighting, prevent the toolbox from covering any other parts of the text. It could be vertical in one of the margins instead of horizontal covering the text I want to read and highlight below.

  6. Two column layout when showing the margin

    Even when the margin is shown, a two column layout may be better when you have little notes but a big screen. Could be made optional.

  7. Highlight only WITHOUT additional tap like iBooks!!

    It's very tiring every time you highlight and then tap "colors only" or "highlights Only" Please make two steps into ones, THEN many iBook users will move to this app!!

  8. Suggestions for exporting

    I really hope an option to export the book with highlights without scanning the book content as pictures.

    Sometimes(many times), I just want those highlights just like what I make with adobe that's editable.

  11. Where can I select chapters in a book?

    I can't see the table of contents option in this app. Could you please add this feature?

    Another feature that I would like to tell you is that could you make the scrolling function faster and smoother? What I am comparing to is the Adobe Reader, you may want to have a look at it.

    By the way it's a great app so far, thanks for making it.

  13. Picture Zoom

    It would be great to have a picture zoom feature and a pictures only view feature where you can just view the pictures/images within a publication.

  14. Evernote Integration

    It is a great feature, to have my notes synced to Evernote!

    Suggestion:

    1.) The source (i.e. Pdf article) should be synced and archivated to Evernote, too. This could be done via the BookCover note generated im Evernote as an attached pdf.

    2.) Viceversa tapping on the BookCover inside Evernote, the app marginnote should be launched with the specific book opened.

  15. Higher definition icon

    It's not very essential in using of your app, but a higher definition icon may make your app more impressive.

    Easy work for you but benefits you forever.

  16. Batch books&notes backup/download/send via wifi

    Please add this function for who want to share interconnected books&notes between iPads. Uploading my work to the Dropbox or other online platforms is not what I want.

  18. Suggestion from Marcel

    SUGGESTION #1

    i do enjoy that i can take sections of various books, and build my own mind map or tree... but it would be nice if the original notes in the original book were not affected (like a 'copy-paste', not a 'cut-paste'.

    i seek to study a book, and then build my own map and outlines, from that map. like pulling exerpts from books into a new document.

    right now i create and import an arbitrary pdf (often blank) in order to do this.

    but i would like the original books and pdfs to remain as they were.

    is…
