I'm a teacher and I absolutely love this app! Finding books for my students that fit their reading levels and interests has never been easier! My kids beg to use epic to find books for research, to check out a cool book their friend is reading and to explore new types of text not available in our classroom library. I also LOVE that I can assign leveled texts for building background knowledge and vocabulary before a unit of study. This app really is epic!
I have use it almost a year. The book loading was always slow even I have high speed internet(150mbps), and the app crash every often. But I like the idea of book reading app. Believe it better than a game app. Until my kids reported they were unable to access the epic book. I cannot log in to cancel either. But they keeps billing me. When contacting their customer support, I was told to sent them my credit card info, and screen shot of my credit card transactions to proof that I was a customer. To top it, they never apologize for my lost access instead just sent me instructions on how to cancel. What a ridiculous subscription I ever signed up.
Seems to be free for schools but not home educators. pricing plans should be open and honest before installing the app and creating accounts. £7.99 is far too expensive anyway. ill stick with amazon thanks.
The app doesn't zoom well and we kept getting booted out of the story and having to find it again. The pages turn too easily, when not trying. It's not even as good as the app we use to check out library books for free. Not worth the money.
This is not a free app! Why is it in the free section? This is highly deceptive. It should be advertized honestly as a 1 month free trial. If you want to ensure authors get paid, then be honest! It's a waste of my time and downloads. I pay through the nose for access to the internet as it is. I'm not paying for anything else, regardless of what your own agenda may be of bamboozling people out of their money with deceptive gimmicks!
My grandson and I enjoy finding new books for him to read and the wealth of material makes finding something he enjoys very easy. My only objection and reason for downgrading it to 4 stars is the problems we have with navigating books at times. We've found the page turning can happen by itself and often the book we're reading will jump off the view, resulting in us having to go into our history and finding it to start over. For all I know it may be a hardware issue on my side but not can be trying at times. Otherwise this has made his daily reading a richer experience since he has depleted our home library of books for his age.
