I really appreciate the Gutenberg Project and what they stand for -- taking old books with expired copyrights and putting them online for free. However, the app isn't the best, often loading slowly, and downloads often simply don't work properly. Fix these and I will change to a 5-star review.
This is simply the best app available to book lovers of public domain literature. I'm so thankful to Gutenberg for providing this vast wealth of books in such an easily accessible format. A library at my fingertips!
I love the Gutenberg project and the wealth of books it has to offer. The app has a simple interface but still needs some work. Overall happy with the app
This is not Project Gutenberg, that is another app. It doesn't say anything about ads here, but you have to post a review to free yourself of ads by downloading Gutenberg Pro, which is also free. I didn't read long enough to see an add, I just explored the program and read what it said. Everything looks good and there are a LOT of books here. But no rotate support so you can read while holding your phone sideways. Overall very good work.
I like the convenience of having this vast trove of public-domain literature at my fingertips. The app also saves me the hassle of importing Gutenberg epubs into third-party applications. Finally, the clean design is a plus. I wish they would add blurbs and author bios to the book download pages though. Maybe these could be sourced from Wikipedia.
