User interface needs some work since you're unable to search by age range. You can only filter the search results after picking a topic. It would be far more useful to browse by appropriate material rather than topic alone. There's also a lot of junk books used as filler as well as kids picture books that were converted to audio books, making them essentially worthless. Overall, a mediocre experience.

Epic is amazing!! I absolutely love it! My daughter struggles with reading and at one point she became uninterested. Once I discovered Epic I began to navigate through the app with her. She loves the never ending book selection as well as the read along! She loves reading so much more now! Every day we read several books and when she gets a bit restless, she has the option to allow app to read to her!! Epic is everything!!!

I've been using Epic! with my now 4 year old for over a year. It's awesome. There are a plethora of great books. They miss many of my absolute favorites, but the ones they have are very good and we've found new favorites. And tons of audiobooks! Those are fantastic to have. However, finding all the books in a reading level is impossible, and I very much wish that was MUCH easier. I create lists myself and have found workarounds, but it's annoying and I wish we could search by reading level only.
