Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
First of all I haven't experienced the 'jumping' around that a previous reviewer mentioned. The collection is complete and the formatting of the poetry and prose is pretty good. There are, however, some MAJOR problems with the usability of this 'book'.
There are absolutely no options...no font adjustment (the font is very small probably to keep the formatting intact), no color changes, no landscape mode etc. And if that weren't bad enough, the only page control is to swipe left or right to turn pages...and there are no bookmarks available...the program will open at the last page you were on, but if you want to go to a different page in a different story or poem you can't. There's also no way to know where you are in a story - the progress bar only shows how far you've gone into the entire book.
There are so many good e-book readers out there that this one needs to be upgraded to their level in order for it to compete. I give it a 5 because of the content but a 1 for the UI of the book.
Nice collection, but the reader gets in the way...
I am a big fan of Poe, so I jumped on this app when I saw it. The collection is pretty good, but the text on the reader jumps around and makes it hard for me to enjoy the works themselves.

I really like to read poes work and i agree that it is a bit disappointing that you cant go into landscape mode but you can change the font size just by using two fingers and zooming in.
