Having gotten stuck in a bit of a backlog recently, I think it would be really nice to be able to filter the Releases page by “unread” or “unfinished” prepubs (in conjunction with the “following” filter, meaning I can restrict it to specifically unread prepubs of the series I am following).
Also, when I click the “search” button on the Series page, I think it would make more sense if the keyboard popped up immediately, rather than me having to tap a second time in the search query section for it to appear. After all, if I’m clicking on the search button, it’s because I want to type something in. And on the topic of the search button, when I go to close it, I intuitively want to press the button a second time to make it disappear, but all tapping it again does is hide away the keyboard - the only way to get rid of the pop-up right now seems to be pressing the “x”.
@chocolatkey I have been using the RSS feed but I wanted to stay out of specific technologies. The new calendar / schedule is very nice and I'd be almost completely satisfied with just another filter option to show only "end" parts. Only additional feature RSS feed gives me is the ability to hide/mark the volume once I've read it, which I can easily do without.
Galaxy S10 in vertical, I just feel like when I tried tapping more than somewhat off center the page moved instead of bringing up the interface, but if the columns are all 1/3 rather than something like 1/4-1/2-1/4 I could see why it would seem like that.
I'm not really bothered by it, I don't think I'd ever be using the reader on my phone in the first place if I wasn't trying to troubleshoot something.
Other then that I am sorry but I don’t know what title you are specifically referring to when you say KnH
Edit: I guess you were referring to the Japanese title for Apothecary Diaries which is, Kusuriya no Hitorigoto, as for that title, although the date is still tentative, the translator did post the following message:
Good news! Provided there are no further hiccups (and we certainly hope there won't be), part 1 of volume 2 should launch this Friday, Feb 19th. The second volume is just a little bit longer than the first one, so it will run in 11 parts.
Once again, we can't thank you enough for your understanding and patience during this delay, and we really look forward to sharing volume 2 with you!
So the date for the finalized ebook release is a bit far off still, (will be released a few weeks after the final part is released on the site) but the volume will begin pre-publication on the site, hopefully soon.
As an add to the above, for series that include ".5" volumes, this also breaks pretty badly.
For me, I have to do things like "fix" all the metadata to be something like "vv.s" - e.g. 01.0, 01.5, 02.0, etc.
Honestly, I wish readers and libraries would actually sort these properly. Something like C#'s Version class which properly deals with the xx.yy.zz.aa version string (and its sub-variants, eg. xx.yy, xx.yy.zz).
Premium versions also provide high quality artwork for novels with illustrations. Prepubs do not include the colour illustrations. So that is another reason to spend a credit even if you've read the prepubs and there isn't premium bonus content. There is also additional editing compared to the prepub version and you get it in epub format.
