Great App But Now Unable to Open Successfully 3/5
I enjoyed reading the variety of books in this great app but it has not been opening successfully for me for quite some time now. Thank you.
New update crashes 1/5
The updated version always crashes when I try to open a book
App keeps quitting after update 1/5
This is a great app when it’s working. Since the latest update this app keeps quitting. I can’t even get to the book to read a word. It quits every time I try to open up the book.
All of the app 5/5
By k.k the cat
It is helpful to me there are so many book to read I can learn so much just from that app
Crashes constantly 1/5
This app is consistent. It refuses to open any of the books in the library. Looking for help leads to a 403 screen. Useless in its current form.
They Should Have Kept it in the Can 1/5
By Smarrt Mike
The new release crashes every time that I try to access the library, and when I try to reach the developer site to report the problem, I get a "403 Forbidden" message.
They took a great app and ruined it. 11-19-2017.
Not as advertised, buggy 2/5
I downloaded this to have an app to read the many ePub books I own. The info says you can add your own books. However, it looks like you can only sign into Dropbox to get books they want you to have. There is no more info since the "Support & FAQ" just open a web page "403 Forbidden." So far this is useless...
I can't read anything anymore 5/5
I just installed the new update and now upon opening any book the app crashes. I still have IOS 10 so I don't know if that is the cause. But I am highly disappointed because I love this app. Please fix this.
What happened?!? 1/5
By Tired of watching afs
I loved this app but now it keeps crashing and won’t open any of the books. There’s no way to contact the developer to inform them of this.
Terrible ... Simply Terrible 1/5
Why they changed this App and dared to call it an Update is a mystery.
There is no way to bookmark a page.
It is more difficult to find books to add to your library.
You can't organize the books in your library.
When the App crashes you will need to painstakingly start over and rebuild your library. A total waste of time.
UPDATE: They changed the App again and now it crashes every time you try to open any book. Totally useless. This App is crap.
Bad update 1/5
The November update crashed the app. The books in my library will not open.
Frustrated too!! 1/5
I totally agree with “Used to be excellent...” and “Frustrated!!”
I have tried to use this app since the, so called, “update” on 11/16/17 and it crashes whenever I try to open a book. When I try to open Support and FAQ, I get “403 Forbidden” message! This is the main reason for writing a poor review! Perhaps I’ll get the developer’s attention, ha ha! To make matters worse, I PURCHASED this app a couple years ago and it was great!
I can’t read anything 1/5
I agree; when I first downloaded the app it was great. Since the redesign, I can download books, but I can’t open them to read them. I click on “open” and it takes me out of the app. I have tried to contact support, but when I click on that, I get a “403 forbidden” error page. This is the only way I can get my SOS out.
After last update this app does nothing but crash!!
Crashes Too Often 1/5
This app has been a favorite of mine for awhile. It would crash on occasion as many apps do, and I would simply reopen it and continue reading. However, recently the crashes have become very frequent.
1. When trying to access a book, the app crashes (possibly related to pulling up an ad, another thing I am not too thrilled with).
2. When scrolling through pages, the app crashes (especially if I take my finger off of the screen?).
These crashes make the app on my phone basically unusable. If they are not fixed soon I will be looking for another app and not coming back.
Used to be a Great app 2/5
By Grand elf
I used to use it all the time. I have listened to several books. I even paid for the full version. But now I have lost my purchase for some reason. My favorite listen was The Three Musketeers
Good, when it works 2/5
So far every book I have downloaded has a point where it shuts down. Then the book must be accessed from the library again and I have to hunt for my place. In many books the menu for chapters does not work. There is no way to mark your place and you cannot count on the page being available next time the app is opened. For the past 2 days no book will open, the app just closes after I click on a downloaded title in my library. 🙄😥
Recent update 2/5
By jelly dog1000
Your recent update makes the app close each time i try to open a book. Can’t contact developer either for same reason.
Keeps crashing 1/5
After the last update, I can no longer open anything. Trying to open a book results in an immediate app crash.
Fix please 5/5
The app crashes when you access any book
Great app 3/5
Lots of great books to choose from. Many of the books have no description, and the highlighting tool is a bit clunky. If not for that it would be a 5 star easy. This was a much better app. Recently, however, it has started crashing. You are in the middle of a page and it just shuts down. If it does not get fixed soon I will probably delete it and try the Gutenberg app.
I used to love this app. Easy to use and I could bookmark, turn pages and easily transfer the titles to my iPhone books. It now has been "upgraded and improved" until it is clunky, inefficient and annoying. The sign in feature is absurd. Why fix something that wasn't broken.
Keeps crashing 1/5
I use to love this app! But every time I click my library the app crashes. Would give 5 stars if you can update and make it more stable.
It works very well.
Thanks for such a fine tool.
Would rate 5 stars... but... 1/5
By So buy this game it's awsome
I really would rate it five stars but every two minutes or so the app would crash and at first it took me ten minutes to find an actual page of the book.
Lots of missing features but lots of free books 4/5
No search, no page-down, no illustrations, no way to set bookmarks, in fact no menus, commands, nor help. Some typos (which might be in the originals, idk). But lots of enjoyable reads.
Love this app! 5/5
I love the books and the amount of books available to read!
I really enjoy this app and would love to give it 5 stars but I can’t. I agree with some of the other complaints such as no way to mark your page, etc. But my bigger issue is that this app crashes about every 10 minutes!! I even deleted it and reinstalled the app. Still the same. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to be reading a story and have the app crash so often? Not only that when I reopen the book I literally have to flip through almost 200 pages to get back to where I was just reading! Ugh!! It seems to me that it needs more frequent updates. The last one being 5 months ago and no one has addressed these complaints yet? I’m going to look for something different if this isn’t resolved very soon. It’s just ridiculous!!!
Works great now! 4/5
Use it all time
Very annoying to use 2/5
By Mimi123456stop counting
This app was very annoying to use it is hard to get out of one book because if you scroll down to the end of the story the whole thing repeats also all the books are very unknown and haven't been heard of they were confusing and it was hard to get out of a story.
Used to be excellent, currently not so much 2/5
When I first started using this app a few years ago, it was wonderful, and I used it regularly. Then, after a couple of years of not accessing it regularly, during which time there were at least a couple of updates, I started using it again, only to discover to my disappointment that it has become very clunky and difficult to use, as follows: 1) the choice of having a white or dark page appears to be unavoidably tied to whether you have chosen to scroll or turn pages -- why on earth would they set it up like that? 2) As with almost any other book-reading app (iBooks, Kindle, Nook) I used to be able to bookmark my place in any given book so that I could be in the midst of reading more than one book at a time; for some unfathomable reason, this app no longer offers that functionality. 3) When I try to scroll down through my library of downloaded titles, I cannot get beyond a couple of rows without having the app quit on me. 4) There is no longer any way of telling how many pages remain in the book. There may be other flaws that I haven't discovered yet, but these are plenty to be going on with. Very disappointed and frustrated. The two stars are for being an app that provides access to a vast library of classic books; zero stars for functionality.
Amazing for book lovers, free, enjoyable.👄👄😻😻
The app I've been looking for! 5/5
Fantastic interface - looking forward to many great books.
Pretty good, nice selection of sci-fi 3/5
Good app, good library. But mine pretty consistently crashes. For no reason. Really, just when scrolling.
I have the latest iOS 11.01, and the latest 5.1 app. Funny though that the App Store says there is a 5.1.1, but no way to get to it, and it is the update which states that it fixes random crashing. Developers??
Also, the App Store link to their “App Support” site goes 404. Lame
Good but . . . 3/5
This is a good app. If u like the classics.I fully believe that there isn’t a single book in there from the 21st century. But otherwise a good app
I spent a half hour looking for a few different series i like and all it brings up is some things not even related to what i typed in!
Best app ever 4/5
I as a book worm think that it is amazing that there is an app that has tons of books.But I just hate all the ads
AMAZING I LOVE IT HOW YOU CAN READ WHATEVER FOR FREE!!!!! WHOO!!!
Nice app 4/5
But the audible advertising is way to intrusive.
Review of free books app 4/5
I really like this app, as it enables me to easily download any classic novels that are in the public domain. It is very convenient and easy to use and right now is much more feasible for me than going to the library. Really appreciate having this free app available.
Good selection 4/5
It is a good mix of genres. Interesting reading.
Has all the classics 5/5
Love this app.
By Bubble lover love this app
When you search for a certain title or author it doesn't even search for it correctly. I really don't like this and it's really annoying and it's just a complete waste of time
Problem was the app 3/5
I can't pause the audio. Other than that, good collection of books.
Missing something 3/5
By Wierd pie
This app really needs some of the newer books, so younger people can enjoy this app even more
Books galore and free... could it be? 5/5
By Allie 2789
An incredible wealth of classics and great books to read on the go and for free! Highly recommended for any reader avid or not.
Good book selections 2/5
Good selection of free books but difficult to operate. Too sensitive to touch; easily jumps around if you are not careful. Really needs a bookmark capability. Also too many pop up ads are annoying.
Where is Help? 1/5
Reset password doesn't work and I need to do that. Help??
This app really helps on boring days
Great Stuff 4/5
Some great references here.
