Pros and cons of Asia Wisdom Collection - Universal App app for iPhone and iPad

Asia Wisdom Collection - Universal App app good for

Can you add some books by Yagyu Munenori, one book is called the way of the living sword (great philosophy on the way of the samurai during Edo period around 400 years old)? Also the book Bushido the way of the samurai by Yamamoto Tsunetomo (very old book on philosophy of samurai). Looking forward to more of your updates.
For 99c its a good deal but there are a lot of typos and spelling mistakes. Could be more professional looking.
It puts me in a good space, - very zen in my opinion, and I think it is beautifully done, and I enjoy it when I want quiet moments to just enter another world
I love it! I love it! Please keep adding new titles! Great deal of knowledge for such a small price. Thanks a lot!
Very good! The app is well formatted and the books are just great. Well worth the dollar.
This app is great, I read all these books a couple a times a month, so cant beat having them all under one app, thank you great additions to this collection would be the Hagakure and the Art Of Peace

Some bad moments

Wish they would let us know or take it off purchases. Doubt if Ill get my money back but hoping to save others from this ripoff. Should be -10 stars for misleading and outright theft.
Suggest avoiding this app. Crashes every time I try to launch it on iOS6 (iPhone 4s). :-(
