Great reader, but most features are disabled for books not purchased from Play I need to be able to locate quotes in my books. Search is the biggest advantage of e-books over paper books, but it is not supported by Play Books unless the book was purchased from Play. I tried to contact the developer, but they supplied a bogus email for developer contact email in the Play Store. The "read aloud" feature is a great free way to convert a Play book to an audio book.
Better view of comic books The new fonts however is great!! Much more convenient when turning a page now and a full horizontal view is great. A better suggestion of books in the read now tab. Now it's easier to go to the next series of a book. An option to not automatically download a book would be great. Finally night mode is available but no option to disable or enable it. Great app icon and downloaded books open fasters now
Anther update and still no customizable bookshelves. I love the Google play books app. but you guys are seriously dropping the ball here. Yet another update to the app and still no customizable bookshelves. What gives Google? There are many other reader apps that aren't as good in my opinion, but they have this feature. Come on guys, get with the program.
OK not as good as Kindle Google Play Books would be perfect if it allowed you to turn off the screen when listening to a book. Because the screen doesn't turn off when listening to a book, it will stop when you put it in your pocket when you move. Plus it uses more battery. Dah! So I often take my 7" Kindle instead because screen can be turned off.
A little slow on the draw sometimes but otherwise excellent. Glad to see you guys listened and will actually fix bugs if they crop up. The contrast change simply does not work well on any device that has a quality screen, and there should be an option to disable it.
Meh. I prefer real books to ebooks. Even so it's nice to have some on my phone for out-of-books emergencies. Sigh. After months of not updating because the old icon was so much nicer than the current one.
