I think that Settings button is currently in the wrong place. Why is it located in the Library? It has nothing to do with the library. Sync button could be there, because we sync libraries, but Settings apply to the whole application. I'd suggest to place it in the top toolbar for iPad, and unite with the Fonts button for iPhone: tap on the Fonts button and there you have options to change fonts, and at the bottom is App Settings command. Icon could be A letter with the gear icon, as Bible Reader has it. iPad version could have two separate buttons.

While the application settings button may not be in the ideal place, it is better than your suggestion. The text display button is mainly for settings specific to each text pane. The global night mode switch being there is really a compromise because we felt users would not want to dig through the application settings to turn it on and off.

The Library view as it is currently implemented is somewhat of a catch all but we have plans to fix that in the future.
