Minimalistic yet functional, it would be nice if one could arrange one's books in a desired order, but that's no big deal. It does just about everything else I want it to do. The selection is good, mostly public domain stuff posted to the Internet, lot of familiar classics and some delightfully strange obscure works. I hope that more will be added to the selection. The ads are annoying, but are a necessary evil, since they fund the free app. One can always escape them by reading offline. Overall, a great app. I really enjoy it.
Updated review, 14 May 2017 - still finding awesome books!! So much history! Written before the age of revisionist history! Only free book app I use or need! Would love to be able to organize books or make notes, ie when they were written. But regardless, this is a wonderful app. I have found a number of very old books, some of which I have long wanted to read and now am able to. These are books you would never find in your local library and if you could find them to purchase I am sure they would be very expensive. Thank you Free Books !!
For anyone who is in love with the classics or your being introduced to them for the first time, it's a brilliant way of doing it. And having the audio book option is perfect! I read to my girls everyday from this app. Experts have been saying for years how reading the classics improve cognitive thinking in youth and I'm so glad they have created an app to make it possible.
Good reads! I love the books available in here- most of them are actually readings in school! Also, I love the fact that you can read offline (those that you've downloaded when you were online)! Good job on that, however the ads can be so annoying, popping out every now and then. Nevertheless, I still recommend this app, especially for readers. 👍
Audio books won't work unfortunately This app is very appealing for me as someone who loves to read and has a fair amount of free time. Unfortunately I tried the audio book portion of the app that cost $3.99 and everytime I attempt to listen to one the app shuts down. I tried the support option and it read "403 Forbidden". I hope this can be resolved because I really would like to use that feature, especially because I paid for it.
One of the best apps for bookworms on the go. Well-organised, lots of great and easily available books, and it works flawlessly. I'd be even happier if it had less ads, or a way for me to organise my downloaded books, but I really have no other complaints. I'll never get bored in the doctor's waiting room again.
