Very Annoying App This app has three major failings. The FIRST is that it changes the tablet default behaviour so that all pdf files get loaded into freading. No app nor app developer should take this choice away from the user. If they are willing to assume they know what is best for me, what other choices are they making on my behalf. I do not trust developers who make this these types of assumptions and will soon delete the app. The SECOND failing is that freading does not render many pdf files properly. Given the first fault, this fault makes the application worse than useless as it prevents me from using my tablet properly. The THIRD failing is that app's web page does not even have a support section. I have sent an email to the company to see if they are willing/able to address my complaints. It just keeps getting better. The contact email listed on Google Play actually doesn't work.
Unnecessarily complicated Downloaded it cause the idea of getting free ebooks in pdf form through my local library seemed appealing. I consider myself technologically savvy but this app is way too complicated and annoying to set up, too many prompts and i have to validate Adobe on my tablet...? blah! No thanks! I just want to install, sync with my library and go. Lucky for me my library also cooperates with other apps than this one. I'm using Overdrive now and so far it's much easier.
Needs major fixes I'm a Librarian, and I love the idea behind Freading, but this app for Android is so majorly broken it actually throws into doubt whether the library should continue with Freading. My problems: 1) Requiring the use of this broken app in the first place. It used to be possible to open Freading files with whichever epub reader you wanted to. Just go back to that. 2) The apps override on PDF file associations. I can't clear the file association by clearing defaults. 3) Unable to save my library in the app
Works with my library I am amazed at the low ratings. Perhaps people are comparing it to Kindle. That is unfair. The only thing I really miss is the ability to sync across devices, other features, dictionary, etc. Would be nice but not critical. Better then adobe digital. I think the reviews must be for the earlier. Version.
Crashes, freezes It does read books (sometimes) but not if there are any pictures in them. It is very prone to freezing and crashing, sometimes mid sentence for no discernable reason. Their website said it would need Adobe Digital Editions, so I downloaded that and set it up. Digital Editions is only for computers. However, DE works better so maybe they should think of using it for book reading...
Tell your library to look elsewhere I've been an Android user for 6 years and I've never been so frustrasted with an app. Setup of app and download of my book were both a pain. The app is so slow to render pages it makes the travel guide I checked out worthless. It's constantly verifying my checkout, so I doubt I can use this without an internet connection. Great idea, terrible execution.
