Used to love this app...but now it seems super glitchy! I have books listing under the wrong author. When I try to archive a book, the app freezes, and I have to close it out and try again, sometimes taking 3 or 4 tries before it will archive. I would also like to see an option to permanently delete books that I no longer want, not just archive. This app could be so great, but it seems there is no motivation to improve it. So disappointing.

I like the concept of this app a lot. It looks as if there's a gold mine of books of all genres. However, when I click the claim button, it doesn't register. I do use Android's talkback, which may have something to do with it. I also had to play with it when logging in. Not everyone is familiar with the way screen readers work and aren't aware of the fact that, screenreading software looks at the code rather than the text; so, I don't hold it against anyone. As a result, I'm giving it a 5 star rating based on the contents, which as a huge bookworm, is awesome. Alas, since I can't withold ratings, I don't believe that would be fair. Just wanted to make the developers aware, in the event they'd like to attempt to fix this issue.

This app is so easy to use. You can download the books directly to it, you can transfer them to Kindle if you'd rather read them there. I prefer to read from Prolific Works. Books are easy to archive. I have it on my phone and tablet. My computer doesn't support it. I wish I could get it there. Sometimes I just want to use a bigger screen if I'm home. Love getting free books. No issues at all for me.
