Survey Results – The next feature/improvement you want for iOS

We recently asked our fellow readers to chime in on the next set of features on Reddit. We got over 55 responses. A big thank you to all that participated. Please see the results below:

As you can see, most readers want custom tap zones/area with the other features being prioritized after that. We are now entering the UI/UX phase of the top 3 items on this list and then will have them scheduled for development shortly. We will target completing 5/6 of these items along with our current roadmap and then reach out to the community again to prioritize the next set of mostly requested features/improvements. There were a few comments with additional requests made that we would have liked to follow up on but were not able to since we did not collect emails, as a result we will ask for your email(optional) in the next survey to allow us to connect and better understand the feedback.

The latest update can be found in the App Store at . Thanks again for all the support and please do continue to reach out to us with feedback and suggestions to help us build your ideal reading platform.
