The worst app ever Every move you want to make it goes through you browser! Why do you need app that only works via browser??? Books are expensive as roketships and most of them with temp access. I hope this app will die. Freedom for information! Make books afordable!
This app is seriously let down by not allowing you to download books, which are very large files, to the SD card. So it eats internal memory. It often relies on opening a browser page, such as for user account, rather than integrating this within the app itself.
Stops every ten minutes The app stops working if left open for more than ten minutes. I don't see how it will encourage my students to read on the go. It's only going to make them look as fast as they can for the relevant information before the app closes on them. Sure looks pretty though.
Issues It's acting up with the highlights. The app highlighted everything in the chapter I was reading and it won't let me fix it. I even tried on my computer and it was acting up also. It's frustrating especially when you want to do something it's not allowing me to do.
I enjoy being able to read my books on my tablet, but I don't like the fact that when I use the read aloud function it starts at the beginning of the chapter every time. I have no control of where it starts. I can't skip ahead or go back. Its very frustrating. I have a very full schedule and multitasking is my lifestyle.
Nice app. Can be better The app is nice. It has most of what I need embedded. However, it will be nice if I can skip forward or backwards during read aloud. A little bit more control of the speed of reading can help. I find that the normal speed is too slow for me. It is however too fast at 1.5x.
In this release we reduced the size of the app and improved compatibility with older devices.
