I started using Glose when I redeemed a free book offer. It bills itself as a "social reading" app, but I haven't found any desire to use it for more than just regular reading... Perhaps that makes me anti-social. I like that it has a night mode that inverts the colors to provide white text against a black background, as this is easier on my eyes. I wish it had an option to set the text and background colors directly though, or that it offered more built-in color combinations (yellow on black, for example) As others have reported, there are navigation issues and unexpected/unwanted highlighting of text. At this time I really don't see that this app offers anything to compete with other apps like Kindle or Nook... But I haven't written it off yet.
This app will not let me sign up. Buttons won't work and just keeps redirecting me to the homepage and then starts all over again asking me to sign up. Super frustrating!
Updates keep rolling in, but this app still isn't worth using, even for free books! Every time I get to the end of the chapter, it won't let me flip to the next page. I have to use the index (or whatever that button is called at the top of the screen). Closing and reopening used to work, but it doesn't anymore.
This app wont let me move from one chapter to the next. Super frustrating
I realize you get what you pay for and this is a free app on which I am trying, and failing, to read a free book (it's from Simon & Schuster so it should work) but still... I haven't got past the first page because the app random goes forward and then freezes on a white screen. So annoying. No easy way, that I can see to alter font and that sort of thing either. I'll give it another try, because I want to read the book, but I'm not holding my breath.
It's super annoying! I downloaded a book for free, but after almost every chapter I get a few pages in and then it just jumps to the next chapter. I always end up super confused! The ability to turn a page sucks to, doesn't always let you actually get to the next page. Lots of glitches that need to be addressed. Especially the jumping pages thing....
