The other thing is that it's really easy to get it into the font resize mode, and even sometimes confirm the size change without intending too.
The 3rd thing, that's a little annoying, although not a huge deal is that when you navigate back from a book to your library, it doesn't take you to the same place you came from. For example, if you were looking at authors, then went into the list of books by a particular author, then started reading one of those books, if you bring up the controls and tap "back" it takes you back to the author list, not the list of books by the author of the book you were just reading.
I've noticed the same things. The worst, other than the font problem which doesn't seem to happen all that much, but does it at odd times, is the rotation.
I'll stop reading for some reason, for a few seconds, and move my hand at an angle without realizing it. so it moves to horizontal. When I straighten up again, it stays that way. So I have to rotate it slightly to the horizontal in the other direction. Then it moves to that direction. but if I then move it vertical again before it finishes the new rotation, it will finally go back to vertical.
I would also like the server program on my Mac to allow me to select books more than one at a time.
And, why can't we just add books by selecting them, rather than having to open them first? It would be nice to be able to select all the books in a series, or even in a folder at one time.
And last, I would like to be able to rename books in the server that would stick. Now, when you do that in the phone app, the names disappear once you delete the book from the phone. I get books from the Guttenburg Project among other places, and sometimes the name comes up as "Unknown". Annoying when there are two or more books with that name in the list.
