Desktop Version of OBC Reader [resolved]

Post by FunkyFlowerLady »

Hello,
Is there a desktop version of the OBC reader app, and if not, can you consider creating that, as it's very uncomfortable to read books on small-screen phones.
And not only that, highlighting text and note-making is also difficult in the OBC reader app on phone.

I would really appreciate it If you could have a solution for that.

And also, I chose to download an epub version of the book as well that I was supposed to read on the OBC Reader app, but the epub book was faulty and didn't load properly. Please let there be an option to read the books in working epub format if someone doesn't want to use the OBC Reader app.

I don't have anything against using an external OBC app, but I can't read books on my phone that's all.

Hope there is a solution for this soon.

Hi there,

And thank you for the inquiry. I am unsure if OBC E-reader App is available for desktops, but I have forwarded the question. I will let you know as soon as I receive the answer. Also, I don't particularly appreciate using a phone for reading books either; I prefer Ipad for that purpose; mine is approximately a book size.

As for the Epub format, I think you are not required to use the OBC E-reader App if you prefer something else.

If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Wishing you a lovely day, :greetings-waveyellow:

Thanks for responding.

I know we can use other formats if we don't want to use the E-reader, but the epub file provided of the book was corrupted (the book was Reconfigurement), So I had to use the E-reader.

Hello.

Thank you for reaching out. If you download a corrupted file, you can use the "report an error" option and request an admin to look into the issue and send you another file. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I have received an answer to your previous question. There will be a polished version of the OBC E-reader App available in the near future. That version is downloadable to computers as well as to mobile devices. As for now, some patience is required before this version is available.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know!

Wishing you a lovely day, :greetings-waveyellow:
