I was hesitant to download this app because of the rating, but I love it. I have no problem with it. It is fabulous. I hated that onedrive app - I deleted it soon after downloading it. This SimplyE is great and so easy to use. Just be sure that after you down load it, the permission for storage is on or you cant down load the books. You can find this under you settings/apps on your device. So great - no stressing about getting to the library, no lugging a book around, and your "book" is with you wherever you go - ready to be read! I just found that the fancy font has a glich - some of the words would be cut in half, but everything else works great. I like having a dark background - beige or black and white letters. Love the app. Thank-you BPL.
Incredibly buggy (under Android on Nexus pad and Samsung phone). Page turning slow or non-responsive (almost unbelievable to release such an app with such a fault....). Very limited in-book navigation, and no bookmarking to return to favorite spots. Font and brightness often unresponsive, or also send you back to start of book. No sync across other devices on same account. Book returns often unresponsive.
This is a very bare-bones e-reader. I don't expect all the features of Kindle, but I would appreciate a few more. Image resizing: illustrations are often too small to see (e.g., maps), or are stretched across two pages, with the wrong aspect ratio. Highlighting: I'd like to be able to select & copy words & phrases for searching in Google or Wikipedia. Also, it often takes several tries to turn a page. Don't know whether that's a software or a hardware problem, though.
Very nice app for borrowing & reading books that are readily available. But the app loses stars because I can't download books, I've reserved, one they're ready. What's the point of reserving books of I can't obtain them. PLEASE FIX THIS.
While I like how convenient it makes getting books from the library, it is very frustrating to try and read on the app because the page starts to dim when I'm only halfway through a page. Also, page turning can be more difficult than it should be.
This app is terrible! When it actually let's me open the book the pages are impossible to turn, if I get an alert on my phone while reading it goes back to the beginning of chapter, then when I go into the app after a few hours of being closed the page is blank and I can't get the book back without restarting my phone. Makes me want to go back to borrowing physical books from the library.
