Review from Pauline R
Not user friendly
September 28, 2016We're sorry that you feel the app isn't user friendly. Often times when users say this, they just need a little assistance to place them on the right track and we're here to offer that assistance. This isn't a simple app with limited functionality, it's quite powerful but not complicated. Visit http://forum.igigbook.com for assistance.
This took a while to set up, but it is well worth it. There are a few things I would like to be more friendly, but it is fine the way it is. I had a problem with the program crashing because of a corrupt pdf. I got help from tech support quickly. After I sent them the corrupt pdf they made a fix to the program and distributed it the next day. Great service! I am very happy to leave my books on the shelf.
This app worked pretty well on My Nexus 9 for quite a while. Then, I had to wipe my tablet and start from a clean slate do to problems with Netflix. Netflix began to work but now Igigbook won't boot. I have reinstalled it and tried a couple of other things that occurred to me but with no luck. I have the latest android version.
Overall it is a good app, but it has several limitations that I find annoying. You have to make and manage your library on their website, not the app. You also have to find the exact PDF of books they used for the index, you cannot alter it. But once the books are installed correctly, they work very well with indexing.
The instructions for Android regarding building the library seems to be non-existent. The help pages on the website don't load. If you can't make this work for Android devices, don't sell it. Will gladly change my rating when it works.
I have just downloaded and paid £11.95 for this app to my Lenovo tablet using 6.1. The app does not open - just a message 'unfortunately iGigBook has stopped'. The app is, however, shown as being compatible with my device. I noticed a message that on Android on versions of Android over 4 that the app requires access to storage and enable this in settings. Well the app is shown in storage and there is no specific 'access' option anyway. I cannot register on the forum as you need to do this via the app - a classic catch 22. Perhaps I am doing something wrong but I have no experience of downloading an and installing an app that just doesn't work. So at the moment can't really give a positive review. Reply still doesn't help as it requests that I switch off overlay in settings but iGigBooks is not listed to do it.

Won't work with my Android tablet and iMac. Can't import pdf. They forgot to mention that, so I'll have to dispute the credit card charge. Doesn't work as advertised.
Minor bug fixes.
