Hm, that’s very strange. Most likely a glitch. I haven’t experienced that fortunately. I tested it in a random featured story (I can’t remember the name of it) and did find some speech bubbles cut off, though; could also be related to this resolution issue/change or a separate issue of speech bubbles.
Pros and cons depending on preference. Although I agree that it’s too large, it is nice to see the cover more clearly. Maybe the larger/smaller resolution or size should be an option in the app itself? Like a slider of some sort so the player can decide which is best for their comfort.
Hopefully Episode fixes this, though.
