It is a fun app for readers and keeps track of our words read and our ranking on the site and among our friends for those who enjoy competition and to challenge readers who like that sort of thing. Good selection of books and daily email deals. I also like that we can customize our page with our own pictures.
It's a very good app, but there are times when I change thd page and the number of words I read don't change. Sometimes it goes on for a few pages before the number goes up. Other than that it's a very good app and I like it.
This app is horrible. Every time I log on to read my app shuts down. Amazon's kindle app is much better. Will be switching back to Amazon
It lets me read at my pace and it will tell me my average reading rate is..the number of words per minute..i am not much of a reader but it is easy to use
I'm accustomed to Kindle in which I only have to tap the corner to set the bookmark. This one requires me to click on a sentence to highlight it (that in itself is glitchy and for some reason doesn't allow me to highlight the first sentence of a new chapter. I have to do the second or third sentence. Sometime it takes many taps for it to highlight instead of bringing up unintended options.) After highlighting the sentence, the options for setting the bookmark come up. I actually put up with having to page and try to find where I left off the first time I used Bookshout as I couldn't find how to set the bookmark, even after clicking all the icons and menus, going online to see how it was done. The website FAQ only covered setting bookmarks for online reading. I finally had to email the developer for a clue to setting the bookmark. They brought up clicking on the sentence to highlight it, then getting a menu to select a bookmark and then setting it. I got really frustrated when tapping multiple times on the sentence didn't do anything. I finally picked a sentence further along and it successfully highlighted and I brought up the bookmarking options. Too many steps for what should be a simple icon at the top of a page to bookmark it. Bookshout also closes the book and puts it on the shelf whenever you leave the app to check another app. You must click on the book icon you want to read to open it up again, frequently not where you left off. If you close the app and open sometime later, you need to re-select the book again.
App is very glitchy have downloaded same three books but when I go to open them they still well not open
