Pretty good - Overall, I like this app. It doesn't try to import all my books into its own directory like other ebook readers. Instead, I just tell Alice which directories to find my books in. I didn't like that the navigation uses two keys (Cmd + Left/Right), but I was able to reset those keys to just (Left/Right) in Alice's Keyboard Shortcuts in the global System Preferences. Unfortunately, in this version there's no keyboard shortcut for increasing or decreasing the font size. Ugh. Another thing I found broken is the navigation after clicking on an Image. Going back doesn't take me to the page where I clicked on it. Instead it starts navigating through the images in the epub file. Still. Even with these flaws, it's a pretty decent epub reader. At the very least, I prefer it to all the other alternative epub readers I've tried and ended up hating.
Disappointed - Even with the updates keeps hanging up and I constantly have to force it to quit. I love the idea and it is potentially very good but has become furstrating to try to use.
