【Premier Reader】: This app costs $6, and our users are paying for it each
and every day. Why? It is the best Gutenberg Reader: beautiful images, elegant
formatting, and graceful page turning. Contents live from Project Gutenberg with
last-minute update, more than 60,000 most important...
Listen to any of the 50k books!
I was initially skeptical of the claim but was amazed after testing it. Some of popular books are available in both human-read audiobooks and in text-to-speech, but I find the voice of Ava in tts is more than adequate for most of the books. I now can listen to any of the 50,000+ books when I cannot find time to sit down to read,on the bus, doing chores...
It is all I wanted to do with books
I always wanted to read the best books ever published. But books are just like trees in a forest, most are of little value. With this app I get some of the best book recommendations. The list alone is worth the effort of downloading!
The list of book recommendation is very helpful. The simple introduction to each book and a link to Wikipedia is absolutely delightful!
Just amazing, audio books, and read-along with each reading word highlighted.
Works well. Beautiful page turning,
New Version Leaves a Lot to Be Desired
I used to be able to search the Audiobooks by Genre, but now you have to know what you are looking for which makes discovering new authors in your favorite category impossible. Please fix this.
This used be to a decent app. But now search doesn’t find anything but error 404. But on the website it finds what I’m looking for? Needs to be fixed!
Have used for years with great pleasure. This morning it stopped working: will not load catalog, and close when attempt to open current book being read. Attempted to reinstall with no change.
has provided an up date which will not allow a search (straight to error page) and is illegible in any event (violet on black , peach on light brown etc) I suppose it will get fixed eventually
Functionality excellent but too many ad interruptions.
What? No ability to create favorite list?
New to using. I either missed it or there is no way to favorite and build a library for future reading/listening?

Nice try but unusable.
*** Updated review: I see nothing this app does that a dozen other reading apps don’t do as well or better, for free. In response to a message from the app developer that animation speed changes have been added to options, I took (or rather wasted) the time and bandwidth re-downloading the app and a book to try the revision. Even the faster curl animation takes too long (on a current-model (not obsolete per Apple) iPad using the latest iOS as of today, Aug 29, 2018,) and rather than offering an option to eliminate the animation, it seems I have only options to curl way way WAY too slowly, way too slowly, or to flip... too slowly. Yuck. (See original review below for my concerns about this.) Also... I just noticed there’s apparently advertisements in this app that is designed for the reading of out-of-copyright books? No. Thanks. But no. I’m not paying to eliminate what should not be there in the first place, from an app that is still unusable even after being “fixed”. So I’ll just stick to my other, better apps, and I’m not wasting another second on this app or revising this review again. *** Original Review: Needs a “just go to the next blasted sodding page without pausing to show a stupid stinking animation of a page flipping” option. Completely unusable as is. There are two options in settings in this version: Flip, which takes the page image and causes it to appear to rotate around a vertical line down the middle of the screen, with the new text appearing inexplicably on the other side, (the page has not two, but apparently infinitely many sides, however many pages are in a book,) and... Curl, in which a realistic-looking page is peeled down from the corner, which while not as offensive to the sensibilities as Flip is, nevertheless... TAKE TOO MUCH TIME TO EXECUTE EVEN ON A NEW AND RECENT, FAST IPHONE. It isn’t that I begrudge a couple seconds here and there, I don’t. It’s that the time wasted on this stupid animation that you can choose between, but NOT simply turn OFF, takes me RIGHT out of the book. Imagine watching a movie that FROZE every 60 seconds for a second or two. It would be MADDENING! “Get to th... ... ... e CHOPPA!” “Oh my god i... ... ... t’s DIP!!!” “You had me at he... ... ... llo.” “Hou.. .. .. ston, we have a problem.” You’d turn the movie off and pick up a book to read. Unless picking up a book to read meant using this app, because the page flip or curl pause would make you hurl your phone or tablet across the room, and go back to watching the halting, stuttering movie. Interface could be better. Also, not to put too fine a point on it, but I believe every title available can be downloaded to a computer then either side-loaded or uploaded to a real, professional e-reader app, like Kindle or Nook. No real reason to bother with this, unless you have issues with the others and want an app that reminds you what those others were like in beta before their first release.
Every time you touch the screen wrong it flips the page around and sets you back to page one. Bookmark seems to work OK, but every time you use any in app function it sets you back to page one. Then you have to leave the book, remembering to say no when it tries to get you to bookmark your progress on page one), and re-enter the book to get back to your bookmark.
