No problems so far (have been using for about a month). Even the application startup is pretty fast, certainly better than most apps. I haven't really used any features except basic epub files viewing and searching through them, as I don't really need them. But for that basic functionality I have no complaints at all. Great app!

Works very well with focused set of features. Primarily need it for reading and annotating epubs. Like it very much. Checked few other readers and it had to be done separately. Would be great to also have the ability to tag selections within a document.

Most effective epub viewer available, no annoying popups, would be better if I could create a list of my favorite pdfs for easy access

Neat Reader is awesome, it saved my day. I just switched from Mac to Windows and found there is no good EPUB reader on Windows at all. I searched the internet for the whole afternoon, finally found neat reader. Thanks guys, keep the good work. It works great on my Android and PC.
