I think the application is terrific. I even went and purchased the premium edition because I thought it deserved the small investment. I'm only rating it four stars and not five because - from my experience - Google Books has screwed this application. I purchased a book from Google Books, had to go through the whole issue of going to an Adobe program to be able to download the book to epub Now... when I go to use the book, it says "No internet connection". Funny that it loaded all the free Google Books... just not the one I purchased. I don't think this is a reflection on UB Reader but until someone can explain why, my rating stays at four and not five. Seriously I am considering dumping this and going to Adobe but I like this app... its is really good
Don't lists to ad complainera Very little ads, And the ones you get don't interrupt reading,none are unskippable videos. Love this app. I've chewed through over 25,000 pages with this app. If your screen doesn't get dim enough if you are reading before bed, the app has an excellent brightness setting. You have options to change your pages and you can increase or decrease font size. If you pay for the upgrade, you can read mobis and there is an option for the app to read the book for you, it isn't for me, but if you have eye trouble these options are great for not wasting 300 MB on an audio book. Thanks for the wonderful hours reading, and thank you for not riddling your application with ads every 15 pages.
ALMOST Perfect... Out of all the eBook readers I've looked at this is the first I found that does a proper job of importing multiple books from multiple directories and sub directories. It is light weight and very quick, even on my Moto E. Controls are straight forward and adequately intuitive. I have just on complaint and that is to do with how it sorts my books. If you choose to sort by author it then sorts that author's books by title. Unfortunately, it insists on sorting by the author's FIRST name rather than their last!
Great reader! Improvements I'd like to see... After tapping a reference link in a book, the back button will not take us back to where we're reading, but take us to the bookshelf. It's quite annoying. Brightness control is good but a night reading option would make it even better. Loading a dictionary "in app" when selecting a word would be a great feature. Overall, a great reading experience. Thanks to the developers!
I have many eBook files and I wanted a reader I could read ALL my different eBooks in one place, and import them from my SD card. They have many different file extensions. I like this reader, however, they charge you to convert the books. I am not paying again for a book I already purchased just to be able to read it in this reader. Functionality wise it works good on my epubs and pdfs. Just wish it would open and read all my files without charging me to convert them. :\
Best for importing from sd card I have tried MANY epub readers, but this is the only one I've found that nearly-effortlessly allows me to import from my sd card. You can convert books free online, so no worry about paying to convert to epub or PDF for UB. For all of this available for free, I do not mind the ads; however, do note that quite a few have sound. Make sure your media volume is low, off, or you're somewhere that it doesn't matter if it plays. I've almost awoken my husband returning to the library due to ads.
