The main reason why Kindle is still number one is because it's better. Not in terms of books but in term of app capabilities. It blows my mind that Play Book doesn't have a dictionary and doesn't allow you to highlight text adobe paste it. Come on Google you can do better than this... A fair mark would be 2.5/5 Update: The application is solid now. Keep the updates coming. 4/5
Blah blah blah
I have a couple of suggestions for the developers. Firstly, please can we have the ability to mark books as favourites, and 'pin' our favourites to the top of the app's lists, or maybe even make a seperate list for the marked favourites? Also, the 'mark finished' facility should be optional, and we should have the ability to switch it off in the settings: some of us like to re-read good books, and don't want to get rid of them. @Ric TheSeagull: no app, except the phone's native camera, can write directly to SD card in any version of Android later than Gingerbread. This is an OS feature, not the fault of the app. Please stop asking the developers for the impossible.
New update still can't download books to sd card!!! The app itself is very good as well as the books. Unfortunately, the biggest downside is a massive disadvantage, that you cannot yet download the books to the sd card. This means the app will drink up your internal storage thereby limiting me to just one book, which may at some stage need to be uninstalled because of the storage issue and use a different app altogether. The app itself is smooth to operate and excellent realism to the actual book with the added bonus to zoom in on pages. I also love the night mode it has too!
It's an amazing app.... I live using it.... I will give 5 stars if you work on my suggestion of creating a folder like system in which we can keep all the books together of a particular category wise.... Which makes it easy to organise and search.... It would act like a shelf of different books but categorized.... Please create this feature... Thank you
