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.
What once was a good app is currently broken. The home screen shows a spinning pinwheel that's stuck in an infinite loop, when it should be showing a catalog of books to read. Downloads fail no matter what and with one of two error messages (claims there isn't enough space when there is enough space, and then claims there is a server error, which is probably accurate). More strangely, I was just prompted by this broken app to upgrade to Gutenbooks Pro for free in a limited time offer, and all I had to do was click Yes when asked if I left it a good review. And after lying about that to get Pro, the downloads still don't work. Uninstalled.
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!
Just installed it, and I haven't tried it fully yet, but the software insist for the user to give a review so here is my review. I dont know anything about this software
Error message every time I tried to download a book, kept retrying until I was told I was out of downloads without successfully downloading even one.
I have a Samsung Tab 8 less than 2 years old. The app itself downloaded, but nothing from the app would download. Looks like it would have been nice, but it obviously does have compatibility issues with some android devices.
