Great concept! 4/5
By Coqui Unlimited
If you're into serious reading this is THE APP to use. Wish to read faster? This your app to learn to do so.
Can't download a book I already have 1/5
By Asi Es Cierto
So this app is useless if I understand it. I can't find a way to take a large collection of PDF's that I created from my own products and import them. Apparently you can only read books you buy from them. Huge fail. Advise against downloading this app.
Great App! 5/5
Very convenient to read from when I'm on the go.
I can finish an extra book a week using BookShout 5/5
By StiQi iX
I love the speed reading features!
LOVE this app!!! Great functionality. Thanks T-mobile!
Kindle WHO?! BookShout is where it's at ! 5/5
This is soo much better than I could have ever hoped for ! Amazing selection of books & customer service is top notch ! Can't wait to read my books everywhere I go !
Can't read while offline 1/5
Books take forever to load while online, and seem to never load when I'm offline, or only sporadically. I commute to work and about half of the time I am underground and without service, so I enjoy reading during that time. This app is useless to me if it doesn't work while not on data or wifi. The word counting tool/goal function is cool but this also doesn't work offline. Don't waste your money on here, the Kindle app is so so much better and works offline.
Not working 1/5
By Jeanne P.
I too am having problems on iPad mini 2 running current IOS. Didn't load at all on 28Feb2017. Tried 01Mar2017. Loaded at first....then having issues again. Not user friendly either. My books were free through T-mobile Tuesdays promo. All I want to do is read an ebook without all this hassle.
I got a free book from t-mobile and tried to open it through my mobile, it always crashes. Not useful at all!
Hate this 1/5
I hate everything about this app. Completely un-user friendly.
Free ebook... thanks tmobile 5/5
Worst app ever. Not even worth a free book. 1/5
Used this app to get my free book from T-Mobile. App won't let me sign in, reset password link takes you to the mobile site where I am already signed in, and reading on the mobile site is like using the internet in 2005. Not even worth trying to read my free book.
Can't open the book 😞 1/5
I got a book and it won't open.
Don't delete your books... 5/5
If you delete a book that you downloaded it will also remove that purchase from your account. You'll have to buy the book again if you want to read it again. This was only acceptable if it was 15 years ago.
The Book Won't Open 1/5
It doesn't work.
Never loads book 1/5
Had it loading for an hour now, with working wifi and still doesn't work. Then it kept hitting me with "failed" after I decided to restart the app. Never using this again. Waste of time and money
Not good! 1/5
I got a book with free promo from T-mobile. This app fails to even open the book. My first experience with this apps is awful so far. I won't be coming back. Why have a promo if your app is not working properly! Obviously people won't be coming back!
It takes forever to load your book, how are you supposed to read on a book app if it takes 5 minutes to load the book...
Horrible UI 1/5
By ARMANDO 29
Luckily TMobile brought this app to light with their push for TMobile Tuesdays. And now I went ahead with the loops and hurdles to get a free e-book and begin reading. However, as I did jumped through more hoops and loops the BookShout App fails to upload the two books I now own. I tried investigating logging on to my BookShout account using my Safari on my iPhone and the UI is so archaic that nothing work. It took me a long time to redeem the code I got to get another e-book. I dont know why this does not work. But it gets 1 star for the waste of my time and how bad it will also be for anyone.
App doesn't work 1/5
When I click on my book in the app, it constantly says failed. I'm unable to read it and this company only allows you to read the books within its app. There's no option to transfer it to read it in a different format.
Worst app 1/5
The worst app! Got a free book from T-Mobile Tuesday and won't even let me open to see it. Such a frustrating app. And the website is the same. Don't recommend BookShout!
Got my free ebook from t-mobile 5/5
Got an ebook from a free promo with t-mobile and I'm loving this app. Easy to use and it gives you all the same features on kindle, iBooks, and Google Play Books. Plus the latest update now sync with my apple watch. There are some added features not found on the others. Setting a reading goal and traking your words read along with the speed reading options. Not my thing but some might like it. So check it out!
eBook For Grad Course 3/5
I like the app. My main issue is when I open the app I see all the extra stuff that does not pertain to me. I like to be able to open the app, see the books I have listed, click on one and read.
A complete reading app 5/5
By Corey Evans
Solid app with a great reading experience. Looking forward to see what the Apple Watch app has in store for the future.
The ebooks take forever to load 1/5
My main reading app 5/5
This app is great, fast and no glitches at all. I read all the time now on it and I also take notes and save them for more studying in the future. Speed reading is a great feature as well, and it helped improve my ability to read faster. I can set reading goals, and I'm making free BookShout money to buy my next books just by meeting my reading goals. Isn't that great!
By the way, I read a lot on my phone and on my kindle fire tablet and in the past I used both iBooks and kindle apps.
Give this app a try, they have all the books you need, for great prices and reading reminders and rewards. Absolutely recommended.
Nice Updates 5/5
Extremely helpful updates. The app just keeps getting better and better and even easier to use. This app has definitely been a life saver for online books and make my books readily accessible! Definitely worth the download.
Awesome Book Reader 5/5
Awesome ebook reader! I wish everything on the Internet had the same highlight feature as this app.
I got to know this app through t-mobile and I absolutely love it. I've read two books in one week, and I can't wait to read more.
Great reading app 5/5
I really like this app, the daily words read feature helps to remind me to make time to read daily.
Continued Innovation 5/5
BookShout is still the best eReader available. Far superior to Kindle. It's like the FitBit of reading.
Love it. 5/5
By Baylor guy!
Love the unique features. I'm one that likes to be reminded to take a few minutes out of my day to relax and read. Thanks BookShout.
Awesome Book App!! 5/5
This is a great app with many different tool that make reading fun!
Love it 5/5
Amazing. I love speed reading. I love the free books. I love earning money towards purchasing other great books just but completing daily word goals.
Great app 5/5
Excellent app. Received free Ebook last Tuesday from t mobile and I just finished my 3rd book already.
So far so good 5/5
So far so good
Original Functionality 5/5
I earned $4 in BookShout bucks this week from just reading. How cool is that? Giving me money I can use on future purchases just by reading!
I really love this app, and has been easy for me thus far. My favorite function is reading goals because it really has helped me more. In 2017, I'm already on track to tackle 1 book/week.
BEWARE, before giving your info!!! 1/5
This app and product is a bait and switch entrapment, designed to get your data and money! They state that you can download your books in ePub, when in reality they only allow you to read them via the web or their app (internally they might as well use ePub, but it does you no good as you can't get access to the actual file). You actually don't own the files on your computer that you can read in your choice of an app. They claim on their forums, it's due to their DRM restrictions, which is hard to believe, as for the similar price one can buy the book on Amazon and download it in their choice of a format.
It doesn't allow you to download books. You HAVE to either sign in to their website, or use this app to read any books. If I purchase a book, I want to be able to pick it up and read it anytime I want without someone tracking what I'm reading.
Great app! 5/5
By Really Very Disappointed1
Very user friendly and easy to navigate. Doing nearly all my eBook reading on it now.
i don't like this app.
Reader Awesome 5/5
Like the way the reader paces.
OK app 3/5
By HD Linda
This book app is OK. When I return to reading it doesn't open where I left off and I have to search for it.
Doesn't load 1/5
I have 2 books on this app, but I can't open the books to read them, it just loads forever. Disappointed.
Doesn't seem to work 1/5
The app seems to hang while loading my book, so is unusable to me
Tony K 5/5
Very enjoyable app. Great selection of varied and interesting book offers at very reasonable prices. Word size, font, and sentence spacing are adjustable, making for less stress on the eye. Speed reading option as well. I went from being a sporadic reader to one who reads every day; have read over 60 books in a year.
Great app 4/5
Love the speed reader
Regal, really?!? 1/5
Is it that hard to just say that the "ebook" you are selling is on this platform instead of available somewhere comfortable to read, such as through Amazon so I could read it on my Kindle.
A Fun Reading Experience 5/5
I really am enjoying BookShout because of its uniqueness. The daily goal is motivating, as are the BookShout Bucks that it awards for certain milestones. I really enjoy the free books that I can try out without spending money. It's a wonderful new experience.
The app does just what it's supposed to and I like that I can bargain hunt too.
