To the FBReader users on the new iOS 16

12th September 2022

There is at least one major issue with FBReader on iOS 16: the selection menu does not appear, so you cannot copy the text or make a bookmark. There is no workaround, sorry.

We prepared the update that fixes the problem, but we currently experience issues with the App Store review. We are working to manage this as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
