I am sorry. I sorry I will be rude : this is crap. Cannot add favourite. Cannot search. Cannot change file name of uploaded files, resulting of a lot of books named (and displayed as...) "3727he572i52k" . Ergonomic is a mess. Dos programs were easier to handle than this app... Google, you screwed up.
Poor, contradictory design Despite some cool features, it saves books and dictionary to phone storage. It is completely unaware of SD storage, as if everyone is using the Nexus design.
Not bad... A whole heap better in fact than most Google bloat. I actually use this one. I feel a few improvements would help though. Firstly, as others have said, make it optional. This goes for every other Google app as well. Secondly, optimise. This thing is a severe memory-gobbler. Thirdly, the option to sort both purchases and samples by author and/or series (ie Karen Traviss, Gears of War) would be a huge help.
Good for light reads. The app is by far the best e-reader for Android, is not the best choice for studying though.
Great for reading, bad for studying. This app is great for reading. It's easy on the eyes and the animations are fluid. Highlighting could still be improved. It should be touch a drag in one step. Not touch, hold, then touch the handle and drag.
Very Good, but not quite Great app I consider myself a somewhat casual book reader, and Play Books is my preferred app as it syncs well across my devices and has some limited uploading capabilities. It's as visually pleasing (or better) than other apps I've tried. Trying to find/open that book you purchased months ago can be a pain though.
