Another Failure 1/5
Hmmm. Can’t read if app keeps crashing. And then, ask me to rate 5 stars? This app is a sad commentary on the poor performance that is being allowed to be released.
Crashes as soon as I try to open a book. 1/5
I have read several books I have downloaded. Not anymore. Every time I try to open a book to read on my iPad, the app.
immediately crashes. Everything goes black. Then the iPad home screen appears. Looking at the poor ratings posted in the App. Store, it appears many have experienced this problem. It appears that the company could care less since it has yet to fix the issue.
Every time I go to open a book the app just crashes. I tried it with multiple books all having the same outcome.
Great application, wonderful books 5/5
Ads for Audible pop up and interfere with app navigation whenever I reopen or switch back to the app. The ads are Not subtle; not ignorable. The ads take over the whole screen and I have to tap a close button to dismiss them. Maybe I should pay the $10 for ad-free, but the way this app is going makes me doubt the developers.
I agree about the issue of no bookmarking. It DOES have page numbering. But for the classic book I’m now reading, the page numbers restart with each chapter, and there is no index/table of contents listing the chapters. I have not had the crashes others are reporting.
Also, links in this store to the developer website and support do not work.
It offers a big library of free titles and I don’t know of a good competitor. So I’m giving two stars, and still using it.
This app used to be great. Why the disappointing changes?
Can’t register 1/5
Tried several times to register. Used my Apple account (nope), tried two other email addresses (nope, nope). Its registration page has no Enter button at all, doesn’t respond to the keyboard. It has a button to register via a Facebook. That’s a Nope from me. Bizarre app on iPad. Has incorrect description of one of the first books I selected. Kind of a mess.
Was a great app but no longer 👎 1/5
By Ninja Bob 62
The app crashes as soon as you try to open the book to start reading it!! Every time!!! Please fix this soon. The app on my iPad works great but not on the iPhone???
Crashes every time 1/5
It crashes every time I open a book. The ads work just fine, though!
From hero to zero 1/5
Have used this app for years through many changes and versions. It is now the worst! Books do not open...at all. Tap the link for support and it takes you to a 403 Forbidden web page. I’ve even waited and come back to it in hopes they would get things fixed. Nope.
That’s the new name of this app.... Nope.
Everything about this app is broken 1/5
This used to be a good app, a long time ago. Now it's barely functional. Crashes all the time, can't download or open certain listed books, can't register or login (literally nothing happens when I try), FAQ button leads to a 404 error page, loses my progress in books...there is no end to the problems. Spare yourself the trouble and find a different app. This one is no longer worth the slightest bit of attention.
Love it! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! It is very useful for school and other things too! I had to read a book for school as a class novel and I looked up the book on this very book app and I got it. S9 that’s why I love it and I rate it good!
Just crashes 1/5
Any book I try to open immediately causes the app to crash.
Any book in library 1/5
By Dedicated OldiesLover
Used to be great! Every ‘improvement’ has been a down grade. Now just trying to ‘open’ a downloaded book shuts down the whole ap. Disgusting and frustrating. So what was improved??
It is obvious developers pay no attention to comments. What began as an amazing source of old titles is now inaccessible. Repairing a ‘crashing’ program ought to be very high priority for developers. They must be asleep if on the job at all!
Can no longer open my books. 2/5
By The Elves
I am still able to download books but I can no longer open them. The app is up to date,please fix!
Such a waste DO NOT PURCHASE AD FREE SERVICE 1/5
I downloaded the app and was immediately annoyed at the fact that there was an ad every single time i opened and closed the app. So I purchased the (over priced) $10 ad free service and it did not work. I got the same amount of ads. So there goes $10 down the drain.
My book 5/5
App only crashes 1/5
You get one star because negative stars aren't an option. More than one person has complained the app keeps crashing and you've done nothing to fix this. Why?
Best ever 5/5
By Baffled in TX
This is without a doubt the best source of great books 😋 the price is right: FREE!
Heading towards a has been app 2/5
This app was very good. However, in recent months it crashes when attempting to open a book. As this was a great app, a 2 rating suffices.
Loved, when it worked 1/5
I've had this app for years, and LOVED it. Now crashes every time I try to open it. Worthless now. Very sad.
It's not broken so let's fix it 1/5
Destroyed my most used app . Notice the e.europe
accent in the good reviews , presumably the clowns that wrecked it . How did these
nincompoops get ahold of
this app ? Go get Gutenberg , still functioning with all their ads .
It just gets worse ,; do they have a bot to write reviews ? Now it won’t
work at all .Stick with children’s
games dim-bulbs .
Great App But Now Unable to Open Successfully 3/5
I enjoy reading the variety of books in this great app. Quite useful and well arranged. I am frustrated, though, that each time I attempt to open my library it shuts down on me. Otherwise great and easy app to use.
Crashes scrolling through my books 2/5
Downloaded a bunch of PD books, and when I try to scroll through the books I downloaded, it always crashes back to IOS after about 10 or 15 book covers are displayed. This makes it a very limited usefulness app. If they fix it I will upgrade my review. Very sad!!
Newest update 1/5
By Tom colonel
The newest update fails continuously.
Crashes on every attempt 1/5
I have used this app for years, mainly on long, cross country flights. And I would have given a 5 star rating at that time. But 6 months or so ago (maybe longer, I only use it when flying) I can no longer use it. The app loads with no problem, and I can browse my library with no issue. I can tap a book and read the info on it, but as soon as I attempt to open the book itself the app crashes to the iPod main screen. It is still running in the background, but every attempt to open the book kicks me back to the iPad screen. I have it on my phone as well, with identical results.
I miss having these books available, and it appears I need to look for a new app.
Great app 5/5
Great app love it very much no hidden charges and fees
I like it 4/5
By Fnaf ravyn
I love how it has Edgar Allan Poe
Doesn’t work anymore 1/5
By Etude Em
I had started to use this app to read classics and enjoyed it. But I just downloaded a book by John Muir. It downloaded swiftly, like in the blink of an eye. This seemed odd but now I know why, as soon as I tried to open it to read it instantly closed the app. I tried to open a book I had downloaded several weeks ago and was about 60 pages in, it too closed the app as soon as I tried to open & read.
App is crashing can’t read any books 2/5
I have the last version of the app
I am on iOS 11.1.2
Good app👍🏻👍🏻 5/5
Great app 1/5
Don’t bother with it. They’ve updated it & doesn’t work. You open a book and it crashes. Used to be good. I deleted it.
Poor app, will not load books at all 1/5
So every time I try to load any book, it just closes the app. This has been going on for some time. Every time I see an update I think finally it’s getting fixed, but nothing. Of course, the ads load fine :-/
I cannot get any book to open. The app crashes.
I agree that this app has worsened! 1/5
I was having the same problems described in recent reviews until the most recent update. Now it crashes when I attempt to open a book I have downloaded. Unusable at present.
Update makes this app crash faster. 1/5
After last update this app does nothing but crash!!
Used to work. Now crashes opening every book 1/5
I haven’t opened this app in a while. But now, every time I try to open a book it crashes. Basically i’s useless now & will be deleted.
Hasn’t worked for weeks 1/5
I used to use this app all the time but it has started to crash every time I try to open a book. It returns me to my phone’s home screen instead of opening. Really disappointed because I loved this app and used to use it all the time but it’s been going downhill for a long time. Now it’s completely useless.
This app would be amazing if it actually workes 1/5
I cannot even open this on my iPad. The app opens, it allows me to download a book but then before the book even comes up it crashes and closes
If you fix this I'll be happy to rate this and rate it 5 stars! Love the app but need it to work at least 50 Percent. Thank you.
Used to be the Best. Now it shuts down 1/5
This used to be my favorite app. Had it for as long as it has existed. Yet there has been too many bugs lately. As it is now you can’t open a book from your library or any other book as it just shuts down. Too bad. I wish I could recommend it but I cannot as it is currently not working (on iPhone 6 at least)
By irritated beyond belief
App crashes every time I try to open a book.
Love this!😀 5/5
If you want to read some books for free, but don't have a library in your area(or just too lazy)then this is the app to use!It also saves you money!🤑You can be really nerdy now!🤓
What happened 2/5
App continues to crash. Love it if you can get it fixed.
Under a previous incarnation this was a great program. Now, I can't even load downloaded books; the program just shuts down.
This app was the best book app I’ve owned... 2/5
This app was great and worked fine for me in the past, but now that I’ve been off it for a few months it doesn’t work anymore. I hadn’t used the app in about three months maybe a little less and like I said it worked fine before this, but there were some updates and maybe that’s what messed it up. I updated the app and opened it but every time I try and press open on a book it just closes on me which is EXTREMELY frustrating. Also, much harder to navigate in the app now. Should’ve kept it how it was.
Miss my free books.... 1/5
Would love to figure out a way to downgrade to the original free books.... this new version crashes every time I try to open a book. LITERALLY, every time.... cannot open a book. Completely useless.
Absolutely hopeless. Can’t open a book. Just keeps crashing. Old version worked so well.
Crashes on iOS 11.1.1 1/5
I recently tried this and found it useful, but the last two updates crash immediately on opening something that has been downloaded. Completely useless now, 😥
Crashes... Every. Single. Time. 1/5
By Sell this sell that
Pretty useless if you can’t even open a book.
App won’t load anything in my Library 2/5
I loved this app, but it has stopped working with some of the recent updates. I really hope that the developers get it going again, because it is a great way to expose people to classic literature.
free books not accessible 1/5
By soapy Mom
I used to love to read on my ipad and love these free books! All the oldies any time I want! Just great! However, the print size has changed and is way too small. Please make it bigger!
11/17 It now crashes when I try to open a book, so I can't use it at all anymore.
