E-Sentral Android Reader: Update as of 30th October 2015

Hello readers!

 

We had done some updating to our current Android application to further enhance your reading experience. Check out our new update by installing them from your Google Play!

Without further ado, let’s move on to the new features:

1. New Sorting

Sorting - Now you can sort based on your recently bought titles
Sorting – now your ebooks are automatically sort based on purchase’s recency

Previously, you were limited to sorting based on Downloaded, Title and Author. Now your ebooks will be automatically sorted based on your recent purchase.

Oh, don’t worry about the missing Downloaded feature. We will get to it now.

 

2. New Filter

Filter – Now you can also filter according to ebooks’ category

Our saviour from getting overloaded with both downloaded and purchased ebooks, Downloaded filter is moved here. Now you can also filter according to ebook’s category.

 

3. Custom Tab made easier !

Previously, you have to tap + button on top, then tap red button at the bottom corner, then go up AGAIN to search for your ebooks right? Not anymore!

Now you tap the red button on top, then add the ebooks on the shelf. All happening at the top of your screen, less radio exercise for your hand and finger.

Tap the red button to create your custom tab.
1. Tap the red button to create your custom tab.

To create a custom tab, tap the red button on top right corner of your screen.

2. Name the tab, then click
2. Name the tab, then click “Create Tab”

Type the name you wish for the tab, then click “Create Tab”. For demonstration purposes, I named it “Test”.

3. Click on + button inside the box to add ebooks

Now you have your custom tab ready. Start adding ebooks to your personal tab by clicking + button inside the rectangle.

4. Search the ebooks you wish to add, then click on the ebook.
4. Search the ebooks you wish to add, then click on the ebook.

Here you can search for ebooks you wish to add. Let’s say I want to add “HARD CORE” by Megat Ishak, so I click on HARD CORE…

5. Now the ebook has been added to my custom tab.
5. Now the ebook has been added to my custom tab.

Now HARD CORE has been added to my “Test” custom tab. All happening at top half of the screen.

 

4. Image zooming made easier.

We know, our image zooming kinda sucks last time, so now we’ve improved it. For demonstration, I’ve used our e-comic (don’t judge guys, I love Maze Runner).

1. Original Picture
1. Original Picture

Now make a spread gesture using your thumb and index finger to zoom.

2. Picture after zooming in, using spread gesture

Some of you are rolling eyes by now and said, “Now the picture is too big, I want to see the first panel!”, perhaps with a couple of curses and boos. Yes, you can. Still using two fingers, drag your finger across the screen to move the picture around.

 

3. Scroll the picture to the first panel using two fingers

There you go, first panel! You can move around your pictures now. To zoom out, pinch the screen until the picture goes back to its original size.

 

And that’s all for now. Anything you find from our new update? We would love to hear feedback from you! Drop us an email at info@e-sentral.com or comment at this thread.
