Changelog:
  • Text to speech: hightlight and scroll to the paragraph it's reading. Works on Kitkat. Can be stopped. Delay between paragraphs.
  • Options to change the color of the text and the TTS highlight.
  • Buttons in the toolbar to open the previous/next chapter.

Hi
Thanks so much for this app
I want to make a request please.
Please add support for images and tables or any visual content cause some other light novels have such, and right now I can't see the image or table content (any visual content)
Thank you very much

There is already the support for images. Do you have a example where there are images when you read on the website but not in the app ?

In the new version, "table placeholder" is replaced by a blue text "[TAP TO SHOW THE TABLE]". If you press that link, the table will be opened in a popup using a webview.
There is another option, open the settings and select "Use webview". When that option is selected, the app will use a webview to show the chapter. The problem with that option is that when a webview is used instead of the textview, you cannot change the color, font and you cannot start TTS.

Oh, thank you!
Is there no way to be able to load them up from the start? If not, will you be able to implement that someday?

The lib that I use cannot display the tables directly. That's the reason I added the option "Use Webview". If you select that option, the app will use another widget to show the chapter if there are tables and the tables will be shown in the text.

There's an app called novel library
It can go read mode and still display visuals and tables
Not sure if it's open sourced but maybe you can pick some stuff from it
