Review from sebastian szewczyk
Good but limited Big choice of books and good reading experience, getting confusing with more titles added. Shld have ability to create bookshelves, collections or folders.
Why am I not able to move app data to SD Card? When moving the app to external storage it moves only app & not the app data. Please consider providing the full fledged external storage support that can also move app data( downloaded books) to external storage along with the app itself. Also please provide much needed option for Tagging or Sorting the books as per genere/choice. This is one of the app that doesn't qualifies the Google standards. Please make us amazed by fixing and improving the app as always. Till then 3 *
There is no way to organize uploaded or purchased books - users have been asking this for years, but in different ways. There needs to be a way to organize your uploaded or purchased books into series or authors or how every the user needs. Google are you listening! I have deducted all stars - I keep getting anime suggestions for books and books I've said I'm not interested in - I have never purchased any and Mark them as not interested but more show up!
The addition of finished reading start reading continue reading shelves was great. but I can really be flexible with the shelves. Now imagine that I accidentally opened a book and I decided that I will read it later so I start some other book. Now the book I opened earlier will stay in my continue reading shelf. And that's gonna bug me when you keep asking me to continue reading a book which I haven't even started yet... please fix this issue
This app is absolutely great!! I thoroughly loved using it. There's one problem however, I do not want the covers of my books to be shown in my device's gallery. Please make them hidden. It's taking up a lot of gallery space, and besides I do not want anyone else to peep into my collection through the gallery.
Limits displayed highlights in Google Drive with message "Highlighted text cannot be displayed" after reaching a limit, can't print all highlights so no good for research work. Limits copied texts as well. Read aloud OK but no ready settings within app to change speed, etc of reading.
What it does it does ok but... The huge problem is that it doesn't provide any way of organising the books. I had just assumed such a basic feature would be included so have now purchased lots of titles from Google. If I'd spotted this earlier I wouldn't have wasted my money as it will soon become too ungainly to use.
