Now there’s a minute tracker at the very top of the library page, makes it easier for readers to see how long they’ve already read. U-U At least I don’t need to switch back and forth between my library page and my earn rewards page.
I’ve also noticed the spacings between each book widen yet again lol. Gonna take some time to get use to it...
[Inside the book’s toolbar function]
I like the new toolbar functions but yet again, I have to take some time to adapt to the new user interface. The transition and time it takes for the toolbar is smooth and fast.
I will review the General part then the Display part.
[Voting for the book icon]
Usually, you can only vote the book by either at the main library page or when you read till the end of the chapter. But this time you can directly vote through the toolbar…easier access I suppose. (Though I personally vote directly from the library page.)
Well…I usually do read over audios. The audio’s voice feels very dead and flat. You can adjust the playback speed to the speed you prefer, adjust the pitch to be either low or high and there’s also a sleep timer.
So, if you’re ever afraid you’ll sleep due to the bland and flat voice of the audio, then set your sleep timer!
Previously, many people complain about this mode due to the font being unreadable (too grey or background’s darkness is way too dark for liking). Seems like they fixed it this time, it isn’t too dark nor is it unreadable like before. Plus you can really feel the difference switching in and out of the Night Mode. (My eyes hurt Q.Q)
Nothing much to say except for the fact it’s easier to see if the lock chapter is really locked or unlock.
[Downloading the Novel Chapters]
When I tried to download a book, it will show which percentage is it at now (E.g. 20%). But when I exit the book and re-enter to check the download percentage, it doesn’t appear. Instead, you can only check the progress which is the moving blue bar). Other than that, there isn’t any more problems.
[Viewing the Comments]
This page takes a very long time to load just to view the comments. It will just load forever and ever and not even load the page. (Unless I exit and try again). This time, they seem to show the exact (or approx.) number of comments in a certain chapter instead of 99+. But this isn’t what we really want…
One suggestion I’ve been asking for a long time: Please let us edit our comments instead of only replying or deleting it! Q_Q
Yeet. My favourite part! Changing the background colour! Been waiting for it~ No complains for this one. Can also switch to night mode through the Displays.
There’re more reading fonts. Yay~
So this time you can use either your phone’s brightness or the app’s own brightness setting. Works perfectly fine. Just that, while it (sometimes) adjust to my phone’s brightness, when I exit the book, the brightness changes in the library page.
In case you guys can’t find it…it’s right below the Display tab.
[Suggestion for Display or the General Tabs]
So, I’ve noticed the voting icon right on the General tab. Then what about the gifting icon? Since the voting icon, rating & gifting icon is still at the end of the chapter, then why include the voting icon in the toolbar? Why not just squeeze everything in there? XD I rather replace the voting icon with the gifting icon in the toolbar.
(I think majority voted for the books directly in the library main page instead of the book itself.)
[Brightness for Comics]
I see no point for this function when you can just adjust it using your own phone’s brightness
[Novel Review new Function]
Maybe I am blind or just totally clueless but…I do not see a ‘pin’ button. Is this feature only available for original authors? Would make sense if it is.
Sometimes when reading, the screen will flash black then white then finally, forcefully exit back to the library page. App freezes sometimes too while using.
Perhaps add in a new tab in the "Earn Rewards" list, a tracker for people to see how many friends they have already invited and they can claim the rewards easier through there? So a tracker like the "Reading Time" where a certain mark is hit/reached, rewards will be given out.
I like/enjoy the new functions (especially the color background) and the improvement of the Night Mode... I don't use Inkstone so no reviews on that section.
