Absolutely terrible app but great service
This is one of the worst apps I have ever used but the service almost makes it worth putting up with the app. I keep hoping it will improve but so far it hasn’t. The app is constantly locking up (especially if you try to flip thru quickly),unable to load a book, losing your place when you close and come back to the app, and doesn’t work when you are offline even you have downloaded the book. I don’t think I have ever read a book where I did not have to actually the app and reopen (of course my correct location has been lost)I frequently don’t bother with the app but just use the web site which functions great.
Literally the only positive of this app is the selection. Beyond that it crashes every few pages/minutes. It is quick to restart, but when you have had to do it about 50 times per book it is infuriating. Most bewilderingly, it does this even when you've downloaded the books to read offline. What is it even loading? Beyond that the search function is incredibly unintuitive. I will be canceling my subscription. By this point there is absolutely no excuse to have such a shoddy app. Use some of that subscription money to hire a worthwhile developer or just take yourself off the market.
Better than the alternatives
Kindle unlimited has crud for selection (if it isn't self-published, they probably don't have it). Scribd USED to be great but you can only read 3 books a month now. Plus they never seem to get anything new I want to read. This service has TONS of books I want to read and their are no limits. Many, many catagories, too. The app is only in portrait, and there are some bugs, but over-all it's worth it, imho.
Good books terrible app
It freezes a lot and you have to restart the app. It crashes when deleting books from your reading page, which then reappear. Navigation is awkward but you have to have the app because the website isn't fully functional either. (I couldn't enter my age to access any mature content) I doubt I'll sink more then the first $8 into this. Update: I can't unsubscribe because the website is broken you can't do it from the app. It's not worth it!
Poor design and unstable app
I really like the concept of being able to acess multiple books but I have nothing but trouble with this app. It will not adjust when I turn my screen and now I keep getting an access error telling me to try again later when I try to open my books. I would stay with them if its fixed right away, otherwise I will be canceling my membership.
Very Unstable Lacks Basic Features
Pluses: good selection of books; nice initial screen to explore different categories and find new reads. Negatives: Works well for a while and then shuts down and/or freezes over and over and then works for a while again. Lacks very basic features like being able to rotate book and hold phone on side and sepia page background color. Freezing and no page rotation are deal killers for me.
Crashes too often
I just read a review that stated it crashes over 50 times even when downloading book but the review was a year old so I decided to try it anyway. Unfortunately, this is still the case. It freezes every few pages or completely closes up to the point where I have to restart my phone. This literally happens every 3 or 4 pages. Can’t enjoy reading this way. It’s a shame.
Only app I use to read books
It’s a really good app One main reason I like it is because it has books you can’t find any where else
App and site are horrible
The app and the site are the worst I have ever used, they keep closing or locking up. The service isa good price and it has the books I want but the reading process is soooo bad. I keep hoping it will improve but I may have to cancel soon because I just can’t take reading a book and it locks up and then losing the page I was on! Pleas fix this is a good service.
Premium books not ID’d
App does ID books as premium at the beginning. Older books come up as available and you can start reading. However about 40 pages into the book, it keeps asking if you want to join premium. If you don’t join you can’t continue! Not worth starting any book or joining.
I’ve purchased the premium subscription and I can’t find a single book I tried looking up. There is no free trial and you can’t really know what you’re up to when you get the premium. All the titles I look for are not there and if they are then they’re In a different language
VERY DISSATISFIED!! 😡
This app says you get unlimited reading for free, but then it tells you to get premium. No big deal, right? Except for the fact that it lets you get 9 chapters in, and then it makes you pay, nine bucks, for premium to finish the book.
Do not subscribe! Save your money.
App closes constantly. The search function is awful. Category search does not return results. This app does not work. I was bummed, it seemed like it would be great.
This app's just about PERFECT for any classic fan! An incredible collection, wonderful graphics, loads of options, and a fantastic reading experience. A must-have for any book lover! I can go on and on about how wonderful it really is. And the size of the file is just DREAMY! Plain perfect. But, of course, there are some frown-worthy drawbacks. No search option, so you can't just jump directly to the book you want. And of course, the enormous time it takes for the book to load the first time, and when you finally get to open it, you have to wait for the chapters to be installed. I fell asleep halfway through the loading process, but boy, the wait was worth it. At one point, I forget this wasn't a real book. This app is just THAT good. If you're a patient man, this is the perfect ebook app for you! If not...well, Google is always there to help, right?
Installed. Can't use app until you sign up via a web browser, which requires your email address and demographic information (sex and date of birth). Then when app launches... Nothing happens. It gives you choices of; new, favorites, categories, etc... But NOTHING happens when you click on them. No books come up. As far as I am concerned, they stole my email address and demographic info for marketing purposes and gave me nothing in return. Date of birth?! Really? There is no legitimate reason for that. MAYBE age range. No one respects you privacy anymore. Shame on them. Oh yeah, and click on Feedback on the website and a dialog box comes up in another language... With no way to enter feedback in English.
