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.
Got my free ebook from tmobile 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.
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.
What happened to where I left off? 3/5
Every time I go back to Bookshout, I am never relocated to where I left off. Takes me ten minutes to find the page. Am I doing something wrong? If so, why can't instructions or tabs be clearer, if not, please fix!
Unhappy So Far 2/5
Just started using the app and couldn't be more annoyed by the highlighting feature. It's very sensitive and not removable at this time! That's an answer that is not easily found on their support page, btw. If you have a known issue, why not make that easy to find? Or better yet, release the update that fixes the problem?
By Joriee Alynne
Greatest reading platform ever! You guys deserve a round of applause!
Constant spam 1/5
By Unhappy customer 234
Constant spam emails and unable to delete account. Don't sign up!!
Starts at first page of the book every time it's opened 2/5
Every time I go to read my book the app starts it on the first page. Using the bookmark is a solution but figuring out how was not intuitive. I had to Google it. That being said I can read books on the app so I guess it does the minimum.
Requires a account to use. 1/5
Why do I need an account to read a book? Another credential I have to remember.
I've always preferred bound books over e-readers, but BookShout is the definite superior version of the latter.
Don't waste your money 1/5
Books won't load and can't download for offline viewing.
IOS10 Problem 1/5
Loved this Book Shout app until the IOS 10 download. Suddenly the print is too small to read without a magnifying glass. The menu to change the size of the print no longer operates. The print stays the same size which would take bionic eyes to read.
Skips around 1/5
This app is awful. If I turn my phone sideways, it changes to another page. If I put the phone down, it jumps to another section. The story that you're reading shows no spaces, paragraphs, etc. to show you that another character is now speaking. So the story was showing you the perspective of 3 different characters and it would literally be the next sentence. Not a different line, paragraph or chapter. It takes forever to turn a page(& you have to do that a lot since it jumps back so often. I have no idea why anyone would use this app over the kindle app.
So so 3/5
Okay for presenting reading material however no bookmark functionality. Thought that would be pretty basic for an e-reader.
Not bad, but beware of updates 3/5
This has been a decent reader app for me for more than a year. I like the way it allows me to continually scroll down pages rather than turning each time. When reading on a small screen, that method is easier for me. I was pretty frustrated after the last "update" that my content was no longer available. I was able to get it back by deleting and reinstalling the app, but lost all of my bookmarks and highlights, apparently permanently. That was a huge disappointment and may be enough to discourage me from buying or reading any books I really care about on this app in the future.
App crashes right after it opens! 1/5
I downloaded this to get a Patricia Cornwall book for $1.99. The app crashes before I can read one word! Very disappointed!
App keeps crashing 3/5
I downloaded this app after getting a great deal on a book thru Facebook. Never heard of this app before. Downloaded with no problem and signed in but every time I try to open my book to start reading the app force closes. I hope it will stop doing this.
Worst app! 1/5
Only got this app because of the T-mobile free book promo. It's an alright book but this app isn't. Sadly it's impossible to read on an iPhone and you can't zoom in properly. Avoid this app if you can. 😾👎👎👎
I like it 4/5
I downloaded the app to take advantage of a TMobile Tuesday giveaway. The free book section has a similar formate to tinder in that you "swipe right or left" on the titles they show you. The free book section is totally uncategorized so you end up sifting through a fair amount of garbage. Eventually the app starts making suggestions for you under the my books tab. I have had a lot of success with the speed reading feature. I am also very pleased with having earned money for in app purchases after reading a certain amount of words. I only use this app on my phone and that platform is great.
I downloaded this in order to take advantage of a offer through which I could get a free book. I found that whatever books I download are essentially locked within the app, so that I can't either save a copy of the book, or put the book on my other e-book reader. I don't much care for all the statistics and time-tracking either -- and there is no option that I can find to shut them off. I just want to be able to read at my own pace without being told (for example) that I haven't met someone else's predefined daily goal.
LOVE this app!!! Great functionality. Thanks T-mobile!
Amazing app 5/5
By Jennifer Unzueta
I love this app I like that I can put a bookmark on the word I left off on and how if I don't understand a word I can press it and it will give me the definition.I've tried other reading apps but this is my favorite
Very Convenient 5/5
Great app and great deals!
