Dear Sundar Pichai, Kindle nearly has a monopoly in ebook platform. Learn from them. Offer us monthly , Six month and twelve month plans at affordable rates. Also, the books must be cheap enough for us to buy. As of now, this sucks.. we are not here to read romance novels. Kindly understand readers interests and make an app ...offline dictionary is also a must. What is the point of having one billion downloads if customers are unhappy? Thanks Akash
This is my rating for now as I am and have been experiencing problems. Before, there used to be times when the .epub file I'm uploading does not process right away, seeming like it would just be there loading forever. It just happened from time to time so I thought maybe the problem was the file itself. But the past few days, I haven't been able to upload any new file at all, and like before, it just keeps on processing. Please fix it, I really like this app and have enjoyed using it (when it actually worked). Will change my rating then.
Its a wonderful app and i love reading with it. However the read aloud option is a bit outdated. Would be nice if google changed the voice to a less robotic one and better understanding of grammar lol, eg: it reads "doesn't" as doesn-tee. It is a little off putting. Would be nice to update it. Sometimes reading on the bus can be dizzy but listening to it would be great.
Works for me, and nice that it let's you upload your own books. **STILL** needs a way to mark books in your library read or unread or the ability to create shelf to sort books. That's the only feature(s) I'd add. As it is now, books all look the same in you library. No way to mark them, or move them to a separate shelf, or sort them into read and unread. They all just mix together in the same spot. Besides that, everything else in the app is great/decent-ish
I wanted to give this app a 5 star app as it has solved so many problems but i did not like that there is no controls on "Read Aloud" feature. Try giving next and prev like buttons to audio control or long press on a sentence from which a user wants to continue reading. Many a times we want to rewind and listen the last sentence for various circumstances like if we did not understand it properly, missed something, sentence was great in itself etc etc . Or if i want to start from a certain sentence on some page. I just can't i had to go through the previous page's audio again. Please fix this.
I really enjoy using this e-reader, the features are substantial enough and the text looks great too. I do take umbridge with the latest update though as they have removed the icon like shelf and replaced with with a list. This make finding books less fun and it's generally just feels like a giant step back. This is my reasoning for the rating. Keep up the good work and please bring back the old style for the library or at least implement to the option to do so.
