It's been great to see the updates but the apps are still not on par with other reading apps, notably the need to dim the status bar at the bottom of the screen in Android 3+ devices. This is a basic built in feature of Android to dim the status bar and it would be great for the logos apps to support it. In reading mode it is very distracting, especially in low light, to have the status icons at full brightness, regardless of the device's brightness setting. I would be so grateful if the developers could look into this.

We'll look into it, thanks! :)

Thanks so much! Readers such as Kindle, Moon+ Reader etc. all use a dimmed/hidden status bar at the bttom of the screen in which the icons are replaced with dimmed dots. It makes it so much easier on the eyes in low light reading, which for me is most of the time.

Thanks for getting this request into the latest release. And now it would good to get the full screen mode that is now supported in Android 4.4.

We're looking into this. We've done a little testing with the Android 4.4 "Immersive" mode, but we found it made using the back button a bit of a pain (since immersive mode hides the back button immediately after you press it, if you want to press the back button more than once, you have to swipe up each time before pressing it) and if you're using the app as a study tool (as opposed to a simple reader) you will need easy access to the back button.

That being said, we're definitely still looking into ways we can incorporate some form of immersive mode...we haven't given up on it yet! Smile

Any chance the new KitKat Android software makes this more doable?
