  1. Brilliant app, I am using it every day. One problem at the moment however. I have text files which contain rubi in chevron brackets << like this >> but the text inside is not rendered as rubi. What could be going wrong?

    1. Hi,

      Be sure that the brackets are 《 and 》 as indicated http://wakaruapp.blogspot.jp/2013/03/tip-how-to-have-furigana-in-your-own.html (There are a lot of brackets that looks alike). Your document needs to have the switch "Recognize Aozora Format" on (Library screen -> edit).
      If it still doesn't work, please send me an example of non-working file by email, I will have a look at it.

  2. Cool to see these features added. I really love this app, it's so valuable! However, I'd like to see a few changes made. I want to make the following suggestions:

    -When you bookmark a site it would be nice to be able to rename and reorder the bookmarks

    -It would also be nice to be able to download the browser for PC use so that if I see a Japanese word when on my desktop then I can automatically save it to my study list on my desktop and it would sync with my mobile device so that the next time I'm on my mobile device I see the words I synced from the desktop version as well

    I know these are huge suggestions but I think they'd make the app more versatile. Thank you.
