Getting totally fed up with this app. Each time I download a book I have blank pages. I have to uninstall to be able to get any written words and if I read on another device and try to go to that page on here I loose it all over again.
Books Are Much Cheaper With Others! Love the interface and the features but the books themselves are much more expensive than the likes of Kobo! Sort that I'll start buying.
Could make the reading voice a little more realistic rather than a robot... I have it on the second voice setting so should be better but isn't.. it's too distracting and you lose concentration
How about a feature to search the books in user's uploaded library?? My collection of ebooks is quite huge and I have uploaded most of them in Play Books. But whenever I want to find a title in NY library, I have to scroll down for manual search. A function to search only in a user's personal library would would be much appreciated. Also an option to open an ebook offline from local folder through this app without uploading. This may cut down the use of other offline ebook reader apps.
No SD card support This is program is like being given a really cool toy that you can't play with. I would like to use this more, but storage is a serious problem. I have a lot of books that I want stored on my SD and cannot keep them on my phone otherwise. I WILL NOT keep using data to reload them, and thus the app is a waste of space. The bottom line is that the Google Books app is useless to me until the above issue is fixed.
Limiting Horrible reading voice, no options, keeps downloading books to my library it chooses to recommend, can't opt out, read at loud stops when phone changes direction, nothing extraordinary. I will look for and download another even if it kills me or I loose the purchases I made .I don't even know where they are stored and if another app will be able to get to my already paid for ebooks. What a forced monopoly! So Google is like: "eat this or you get nothing, well maybe an error message if you are lucky!"
