Easiest reading app I’ve seen 5/5
This app is very efficient and easy to use. It is very nicely made with all the features I need!
Characters Lives Melding 4/5
I enjoyed Book 3 in this series with all the child cooks and parental interjections. Wanda can keep me interested with her storytelling abilities. There’s nothing complicated about the plot; just building one story after another as she ties the characters lives together. As expected with children, their interactions are uninhibited. I like how the relationships between all the characters are developed and how Heidi Troyes balances it all and still manages to teach cooking. Life is about relationships and this series portrays it well. Enjoy!
Lost it’s glow 2/5
This last year the app has gotten progressively worse. When trying to return books it crashes. I read extremely fast and it crashes at the end of chapters. Unfortunately this is the app used by our public library and I am stuck with it. Developers please fix these bugs.
Bluefire Reader 4/5
By cheapskate reader
Bluefire Reader is a good Kindle app clone that works for Adobe Ebooks that I download from the library. No bells and whistles. Has an annoying “verifying loan” feature that sometimes makes me connect to the internet to read a book. Good solid app.
Has potential, but needs improvement 3/5
By C Farber
I like that it’s more customizable than other readers, but there are a couple things that annoy me.
1) Every other reader I’ve used, when you leave the app and come back.. it brings you directly to the book you were reading. This app brings you to the library instead. I know I can just press ‘now reading’, but it’s an unnecessary step. Once you’re in the middle of a book, odds are high the you’re gonna continue reading that book!
2) the app hangs frequently! I can be reading and flipping thru the pages, when all the sudden it doesn’t respond. Swipe, swipe.. nothing. It’s not the iPad because I can switch apps and do whatever else I want while the app is hung. This happens on multiple newer devices. If you give it 10 seconds or so it seems to come back, but it’s pretty ridiculous. The app has one purpose and that’s to display text. It has all kinds of time to have the next page ready while I’m reading the current page ** added note here, when it hangs it always seems to be at the end of a chapter
3) this is minor, but with all the freedom you have to pick your background and text color.. you don’t have the freedom to pick a highlight color. I had found an interesting color combo, went to highlight something and it didn’t highlight because of my color scheme
4) also minor, when dealing with RGB color selection, I’m used to seeing 0-255.. but for some reason this app uses 0-100.
Thank you for fixing my favorite reader! 5/5
Was bummed when I kept getting an error linking Dropbox. This update definitely made my day.
Dropbox support fixed! 5/5
Love this app!
Worst PDF reader ever 1/5
I got this atrocity of an app to read a DRM protected ebook I need for my university classes. I need to log in with my Adobe ID, and it just gives me errors. Now I’m out the cost of an expensive ebook and the necessary materials to complete my course. This developer is awful.
For some reason it is saying that there was a problem while downloading a book I want to read, I’m not sure what is going on or if it’s because I updated my phone to iOS 11 or if it’s just a glitch please fix this!!
No longer links to Dropbox 2/5
This app needs an update to the new Dropbox API -- I can no longer download books through Dropbox. Please fix.
Great app but needs 1 thing 4/5
Great app. I would just really like it if the night mode applied to the whole app’s interface as well. I always read my books with night mode on (white text on background) but then when I have to open the table of contents or the app’s main menu, I get blinded by all the bright whiteness. This is especially irritating when you’re reading in the dark at night. Can you please enable the night mode for the UI as well? Thanks!
Can't link it to Dropbox. I've been using this app for years and I've never had any problems until now. This is my favorite ereader and it won't connect to Dropbox. :(
No descarga libros de elibro 1/5
Por favor si lo pueden revisar no descarga libros de e-libro con IOS 11 dice “se ha agotado el tiempo de espera”
Ah tampoco conecta con Dropbox por favor una revisada
Couldn’t be happier 5/5
I am a new user, so matters may yet go sideways, but currently I’m as happy as a clam at high tide with no one digging.
It makes reading PDF's perfect.
Worse reader app 1/5
This app doesn't allow you export your highligts, or book reference in order to use it for write papers.
Romance not to be missed 5/5
When I first started reading the book I thought oh no another Cinderella type story. And then I realize this is one of my favorite authors. She did not disappoint. A wonderful story with suspenseful characters. Yes there was romantic sex and the Author held it back into a waiting for it. By that time you really stand up and cheer. Or wish you had someone sitting next to you to share the romantic sexual moments. A true love story not to be missed
Best Ereader 5/5
By Minneola Tangelo
For versatility of format downloads I've found BluFire Reader to be the most user friendly of all the one out there including Kindle and Kobo. I have an iPhone and I much prefer BluFire to the Apple reader.
Books disappear 1/5
Every now and then they update the app and all my books disappear. So very f-ing annoying!
Constant cashes 1/5
By Darth Baizer
I just downloaded this reader as it was the required reader for a certain book. I cannot read the book because of this reader. Every time I try to turn the page, the app crashes and shuts down.
Please add an option to increase text size
Wonderfully Balanced Excellence 5/5
By B Nathanael
This book balances the research with the practical aspects
App Great When It Works 3/5
When it works, this is a great app that makes reading ePub books a very pleasurable experience. However, lately, it has been crashing more and more to the point where right now I can't use it at all. Books seem to load and if I click on information, it will return the proper information on the nook (title, publisher, pages, etc.) it just won't load any pages for me to read - very annoying as you can imagine. I can't figure out a work around and don't know who to contact so I'm hoping the developer reads these reviews and will tell me what to do.
Awesome way to download the best arcs 5/5
This wonderful website lets me speak directly to publishers and download all the newest books I need to read so I can make clear cut purchasing decisions and help patrons find the next best thing. Everything is organized well and I have never had to wait to get help from the help desk. Thank you for filling up my tbr pile!
OK app but a few bugs 3/5
This is a nice easy to use app. But a bit buggy because freezes or crashes on iPhone intermittently. Maybe time for an update to keep up with the iOS updates. Last one was over a year ago.
Slow, have to swipe 5 times or more 2/5
My choice was this reader or Overdrive. This reader is slow and I can't never swipe the page to turn just one time. Have to swipe at it numerous times. It locks up and overall annoying reader but For harlequin books this is my only choice.
I do like being able to edit the library which is why I still use it.
Embarrassingly bad. Wow.
Terrible search 1/5
I'm reading textbooks on this app and the search takes 5 minutes using my iPhone 6s Plus. It's a terrible reader as well. I am looking for meaningful ways to transfer to another reader so that I can get work done time effectively. I hate this app and it's reader but there seems to be no other choice or options.
This needs improvement.
More appealing user friend home page
Ability to have different shelve.
Response time by flipping pages 3/5
Help Help Help!!!!
Management of Bluefire Reader pls. FIX the
delay response time when trying to flip pages.
It makes reading a book with a Bluefire
Reader a TORTURE😳😱😰😰
I like it 5/5
Infuriating app 2/5
The only thing good I can say is it lets me read books from my library.
You can't look up a word! Isn't a book the logical place to look up a word? Every other app can do it, why do they block it?
Likewise, you can't copy text. Not a paragraph. Not a sentence. Not a word. Not even a single character. I like what iBooks does, which copies copyright material along with any text you selected to the clipboard. Everybody wins. But this app blocks it all.
Since I can't copy a few key sentences to blog about (you know, to give the book publicity), I try to swipe from the right side of the screen to open up the Notes app on my iPad. But go anywhere near the right side of the screen (swipe or tap), and it goes to the next page. Infuriating.
On an iPad, you can't do 2-up pages, to make it easy to read. No, you just have to crank the margins way up so that a line of text doesn't have 200 characters in it. This is a huge waste of the 12.9" screen.
It does allow you to change the font and linespacing, so that at least is good, although it's about the minimum one would expect from an ebook reader in 2017.
Only syncs to Dropbox... 2/5
This is a no go for me... in 2017 you HAVE to support OneDrive and Google Drive, at the very least.
No Backup! 1/5
This is just plain stupid. There's no way to backup downloaded files that have been PURCHASED. Their suggestion that one connect and backup to a computer is technologically SO old!
Lost everything 1/5
Lost everything with no warning. For some reason I was only allowed 2 week access although my license allows 180 days. I tried backing up my annotations but was unexpectedly locked out of material at 9:53 pm on date of expiration. No warning given and lost all of my notes and annotations. What a disappointment. App was also slow and glitchy when reading. Avoid if you can!
Lousy app. Back up books if you must use. 1/5
Like another reviewer, lost my library of University of Chicago book-of-the-month downloads--app just stopped working. Less-than-helpful support website advice to just delete app (& data, I.e., books) & reinstall. I have the books backed up on MacBook, but a pita nonetheless. Mediocre reading app, only minimal functionality.
Can't open my book because it says it is registered with a different account. I only have ONE Adobe account. Never again.

Completely useless 1/5
It wouldn't supply any numbers or explain to me why I couldn't read a book I needed for school.
Hard to read 1/5
Just got this app to read a book that was assigned in my class and it's impossible to read ! You can't zoom like it is in iBooks. The letters are so small, I think i can damage my vision if I will keep reading through the app.
Simplify please 1/5
Another crappy reader app. It keeps saying that I have another account to verify. I have no idea what that means. So I cannot read my books.
Clean and simple 5/5
If u just want to read a book - this one is for u. Great stanza replacement
No share/copy option for selected text 2/5
No share/copy option when you select text.
It's totally fair use, but apparently not important enough to include. It's just about the only thing I want out of an ebook reader.
A simple, stable, DRM epub reader - even with hundreds of books. Lots of display color options.
Missing must-have feature and slow 2/5
This app is missing basic features that apps like Kindle have had for years:
- internet search
Additionally, its performance is very slow in other areas:
- page change & refresh
No other word for it. Thank you for it!
Absolutely horrible! You will stay frustrated with all functions. Even just reading, pages must reload when turning or going to previous page. REALLY BLUEFIRE READER!!!!!!!
The worst Ereader ever 1/5
I've used more than 5 reader apps so far, I downloaded this app because one of the library journals required Bluefire. I use iPhone 7p and this is the only app that cannot properly zoom in/out when I tried to. I wish there is 0 star I could rate, for real.
Needs an update 2/5
This app freezes way too often and just isn't very functional. They need to fix it to operate for smoothly in a user-friendly way.
