I just got a shiny new iPad and it's awesome. Sadly our reader kind of sucks on tablets (and lesser extent phones), but in my defense I developed it before they became popular. Harawa made a nice app for Android, but I am an Apple person (my first laptop was a PowerBook G4). So I decided to develop an app for the Dynasty Reader. So far its been going quite well, but I need testers. Both for suggestions on what they would like to see in the app, and any bugs/issues they come across.
I have a decent version currently working, though far from finished, it provides a nice reading experience already. So if you have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch running iOS version 5 or newer and want to test it, hit me up with a PM or reply to this post.
I am unsure that when I am finished if I am going to try to get it on the App Store (or if it would even get accepted). But if nothing else I will continue Ad Hoc distribution where I can distribute it to up to 100 separate devices.
I'd love to test it. But the reader already works really well for iPods and iphones, I do not have a tablet so I don't know about them. But an improved reader for the iPhone looks nice, those screenshots look awesome.
Edit: on an unrelated note, the chatbox is broken so that it expands indefinitely when vewing the front page on iPod or iPhone, which causes it to crash.
If you are using banshee (Linux/GNU open source version of iTunes) simply right click the device on the devices tab to the left of the program, go down to properties, and look for the property: serial number, copy that and use it.
I would love to test it too! If you are looking for more testers still. The broswer version of the reader is not that bad, but it can get quite annoying sometimes, so it would be amazing to count with an app for it, so I'm excited about this :D. I have an iPad2 and an iTouch 3G.
Also I am thinking about what I want to do next, since it currently has a pretty good base atm. On my list are the following.
* Downloading chapters to be able to read them without an Internet connection.[/*]
* Improve display for browsing for chapters. Stuff like adding covers, showing tags (possibly filtering some tags), etc.[/*]
* Support for Reading List[/*]
One thing I was think about was combining offline reading + reading list. So items that are on your To Read list would automatically get downloaded.
If you have anymore suggestions or feature requests let me know.
Those are great ideas! I think that instead of tapping on the side of the screen to go to the next page, it would be easier if you could flip the pages for easier viewing experience. I wouldn't mind being a tester as well. I tend to use my ipad more when im in this website.
