It's quite nice having many stories in one Hand rather than having multiple games downloaded. Only problem I have is I get errors often that just causes everything to freeze. sometimes they're expected sometimes random but still pretty often. I figured out how to get around it but the stats menu is one of the ways that causes an error everytime. So far I only tried two stories on this app but the errors happened on both. I wish I could read previous pages again.

I love having all my books in one place, but I wish they worked offline, like the books out of the app do. Maybe an option to just download the books would be nice. On top of this, it doesn't seem to recognize if you've bought books outside the app? But its easy to fix, just one email and it's done. Overall I recommend if you're huge into interactive fiction/IFs!

This app needs to figure out a way to save progress or rollback choices. You can play through almost an entire book of text, make *one* poor choice, and have to restart an entire game. There's a ton of great material written by talented writers here; it's a shame it's being wasted on such a dated, frustrating interface. I haven't bought another book on this app in over six months for this reason.
