Released: July 28, 2022
  • New feature, based on user feedback: Collections! Now you can create custom groupings of your library titles. For example, you could make a "Friday Night Game" Collection that contains all of the books needed for the game you're running on Friday nights. This is synced across your devices, so if you create a Collection on your computer and add some titles to it, that will be reflected on your tablet too (after a refresh).
  • Internationalization: Now you can change which language you want the app to be displayed in, via the Settings menu.
  • When in filtered view, "Select all" now only selects items shown, not all items in library.
  • Various small bugfixes (e.g. no longer treats local 0-byte files incorrectly).


Released: August 31, 2021

  • We've added the beta version of an in-app PDF reader! That's right: you no longer have to open a separate application to read PDFs.
  • Various bugfixes.


Released: October 5, 2020
  • Completely new UI!
  • Added ability to show only titles with updated files available.
  • Fixed several bugs related to file hash matching.
  • Now files for a given title are put into that title’s own subdirectory, to prevent file collisions (e.g. when multiple titles from a same publisher include a file with the same name).
