Hi Folks

I liked the App to begin with, but like the other few Asus Apps, its proving a bit buggy. It seems to crash out when I view epub books, but I can't find out what it doesn't like. Can anybody recommend and eBook app?

Ideally I'd like to view 2 pages landscape, it would be awesome if I could rip the ebook reader from the Xoom and run it (its looks nicer from what I can tell).

IMHO the best reader by far on the Android is Aldiko (http://www.aldiko.com/). But since getting the Transformer, I'm using the MyLibrary... almost the same quality. I would suggest you have a look at the problems you are getting and try to see why. Maybe a corrupt epub? Try a free epub from google books (http://books.google.com/), it wouldn't be anything fancy but good quality.

If you are still having problems, please, give us more info,

I had the same problems with the app just closing itself, after it had searched for all the viewable files. I found out it was 1 corrupt file that was causing the trouble. Sounds like you have the same issue. Remove them all, clear the cache for the app in the settings, then add them slowly to your collection to find the culprit.

Aldiko constantly force closes on me. Had to uninstall it. Using a combination of myLibrary and FB reader. MyLibrary won't read most of the books that Aldiko could read on my other tablet. I click and nothing happens. Sometimes the program will open, but not with the correct book.

FB Reader reads all my books but I don't like the formatting for the program...

The My Library app also crashes with epub books for me. Aldiko crashes as soon as I try and rotate the screen with a book. Aldiko also ignores the auto brightness function on the tablet and goes to 100% which is really annoying.

I've tried clearing the cache on the My Library app but this hasn't helped. An important point is that this didnt start happening until I put the latests Asus update on.. the version the tablet came with worked fine. Not sure if I can revert to the old version or if I should thought.

Have you actually set the brightness level in the aldiko app as well?

That's an excellent point.. I didn't realise it had one!

I purchased the Premium version of Aldiko and am pleased to say that it doesn't crash when I rotate the screen and works fine with my epub books that didn't work with the my lib app.

So would recommended the Aldiko premium app for anyone else having issues with Asus's My Lib app, doesn't solve the issue but works around it until Asus fix the issue.

P.S I think the issue may lie with the epub content or format. I don't think My Lib app likes epub books that have illustrations.

Developer from Asus
We are fixing my library app bugs, after testing it, and then planning to provide an update around 2~3 weeks later. More UI improvement and be consistent with Honeycomb UI. And we are adding to support posting what you are reading and your comment onto facebook sharing with your friends, too.

Further more, months later, we are going to provide users to store all their highlight / comments on the books into cloud storage, so, even users purchase another Asus device, he can still see all his history comments on his books before.

For the U.S. book store, we have Txtr already, and we are going to have another book provider very soon.

Thanks man,

Is there a way to submit bugs identified by users? Even only for the MyLibrary app?

Cheers,

I now have Aldiko premium working 100% and after some tweaking it looks and feels as good as the free Asus My Lib app.

Good to know that the issue is being worked on though!
