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
Until I got this app I'd never read a book. I'd gotten through a few chapters, put the book down and never picked it up again. In the last few months I've read 7 books through this app, so this was a great app. However, with the latest update of Google play store, the my library widget has disappeared and my only choice now is a Google books widget which is too small and stacks titles rather than lays them side by side like the old 6x4 widget. Why would you pull that widget and why wouldn't you tell us. Update the widget with this app so that I get the old 6x4 that I used to have and make me happy again.
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.
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
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 However the read aloud option is a bit outdated.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.
The app kept constantly crashing and was incredibly slow. When it asked if I wanted to report the issues I said yes and halfway through it would crash again. Please fix EXTREMELY BROKEN.
