Book reader 5/5
I'm advid book reader. I normally use a Samsung tablet but sometimes I forget it at home. I'm glad that my iPhone can open the playbook app. Thank you.
Great reading app 5/5
Crashes and crashes and crashes 1/5
Every time you open the app it crashes. Fix this google.
Great app that works well on all platforms
My favorite app! 5/5
I love google play! A great way to read books on the go. Intuitive and easy-to-use design.
Very Pleased 5/5
By Tip Terry
I am very pleased with Google Play. I can find any type of book or music that I am looking for.
5 Stars 5/5
Awesome! Easy and quick way to upload whatever book you want from the internet!
Good but takes up too much space 4/5
I've been using this on my phone for a while and it's good and convenient. But the iPad version turned my 100mb texts into <2GB files that consumed tons of storage. Please consider fixing.
It does exactly what it's supposed to 4/5
The app serves the purpose of being able to read on a mobile device. I like that I can read a book anywhere I can use google and that I can take notes on the pages. Some spelling errors in the translations aside, I will continue to use this app.
Good functionality 4/5
App works well, I like three highlights and note taking that can easily be saved to docs. Find it challenging to download new content from app store, have to go to play store.
Needs to look at iBooks 4/5
I prefer iBooks as a reader but Google's portability. Eliminate the opening screen and go directly to your library view.
Works Great 5/5
Strange!? I don't understand why others complain about this app. Its such a pleasure using it as I snuggle in bed and read my favorite books. I sincerely mean this - this reading app gives me no problems. Works Great!
Great book app 5/5
Great app and great book selection. It allow you to zoom in on photos. I have a nice number of book about mushrooms and other wild edibles.
Essential for old books 5/5
This app is essential for reading old books that would be difficult to find or cost prohibitive anywhere else. Fantastic.
Aplicativo obrigatório para quem gosta de ler!
Better than the Apple itself 5/5
Apple's iBooks🤡, wasn't very good at all, and buying books was impossible. This is better than the apple 🍎 trademark books app. I completely recommend this app. Go get it guys😍😍🤣
Superlative Information and Help 5/5
Great book, lots of information and help for parents and caregivers of those with epilepsy. Hands down the best and most helpful book I've found on epilepsy yet.
Expected more from a Google app 3/5
Relatively okay. Unfortunately missing the functionality of purchasing books through app. Or I'm just finding it difficult to find.
Hit and miss, but wonder if that's Apple's fault 4/5
Occasional crashes and sync issues but not bad. Just thankful I don't have to pay Apple's ridiculous prices for books.
Great book reading app! 5/5
I really enjoy this app for reading books and the synchronization is the best!
By Andrey Filipe
I'm a reader 4/5
Google books works for my reading needs. If I had to change something I'd broaden the list of suggested material.
Great for use on iPad or windows. Always keeps place no matter what device.
I love that I can read my google books on my larger screen iPad. I prefer the selection of books in the Google Play store. I've never had a problem with it loading my books or syncing with my other devices.
Has some minor bugs that need to be cleaned up, but I love the whole GUI, and capabilities of it. Especially highlights, notes in reading. I love how books are displayed on shelf and the search to find book right away. Ok and syncing pages across devices. The list of positives goes on and on. Blows away iBooks
Awesome Reading App! 5/5
My personal experience with the app is as good as iBooks; but I think this app has a slight advantage, I can upload my books which I think it's great!
By the way, I'm using this app on my iPad.
(Not sure what those other people are complaining about).
No list view 5/5
Ok so I gave this app a five star review because if Google wants to cheat then so will I. First of all I want to say that if you have this app 1 star chances are you will never see it. You used to be able to click on the reviews and see all the one stars in one place. But Google doesnt do that because they don't want you to see what people are really saying. I mean c'mon people. This is a multi-billion dollar company and you mean to tell me that they can't give you an option to see reviews separately? Second, I want to talk about LIST VIEW! These people are a piece of work. I have read reviews from way back when this app came out with people begging for list view. I have even called Google myself and requested it and the girl I spoke to said she can recommend it but it up to the vision that department has for the app. Really? What about the customer? I guess we don't matter? You see the problem with not having list view is that when you download pdf files to use in the app and they have long titles it becomes truncated and you can't see the whole title or the author. This presents a huge problem because you have to open each book all the way and see if it's the book your looking for. Also do you know how long it takes to scroll through hundreds of books in grid view doing that? It's a nightmare. But maybe that's Google's whole goal; to make people hate the app and not buy books from them? Well let me help you Google. Build into the code where you have those three lines in the top right hand corner a option that says list view! It's not hard. It's been years and you still haven't done anything! Fix it Google or I will write a letter to the CEO asking him why you are ignoring us!
Play books 5/5
This is a great app. It is just as good as the kindle app.
Great given constraints 5/5
This app is great given the constraints Apple places on third party purchases.
Other people leaving low ratings are idiots who think it's google's fault you're not permitted to purchase books—apple takes a cut, and it really doesn't make sense to offer that functionality in this app if customers can get it cheaper just by going to the website.
For actual reading (you know, the POINT of the app), this app is best in class. Night light, cross-platform sync, uploading, and everything else are great.
Love it 5/5
Great selection of books
By Big Boui
Works great on iPhone 7 plus.
The biggest irritation for me is, where is the "shop" button. It has been removed from the selections on the menu on the google play books. Leaving one to exit the app to go to another app to purchase books. Add to that the frequent crashes and other issues.
I like it 5/5
I like it. Please do make one for Amazon Fire as well.
Great app for reading 5/5
If you are into reading books , this is one of the best apps out there .. give it a try , you won't be disappointed ...
Love the app 3/5
I love being able to have all my books on my phone. The text is a bit small and stressful on my eyes. Overall it's a great app
Gr8 App 5/5
Free Books whatt 5/5
They were having a sale on classic books where you could get em all for free and I did. Like 20 of them too. Awesome 10/10
Love this 5/5
Preferred this than ibooks. Not complicated in synchronizing
I love this app. Now whenever I go anywhere if I get bored I can just pull out my phone and read my book!
By Thanx you
The app is great only thing I would like to see done for an improvement would be verbal play of book books. Is wonderful that the app gives suggestions of other book similar to what you already have read. I have found the more I read the better suggestions I get.
Works the way it should 5/5
By Asdf Byu
The app remembers where you are on all your devices. Pages have no weird formatting. Great app!!!
Excellent reading app 5/5
Having only had experienced Kindle and Play Books, I very much enjoyed reading a fantasy trilogy on Play. The app rarely got in the way, and the seamless reduction of blue light to night hours eliminated reading fatigue. Cross device sync of reading progress also worked seamlessly. The only inconvenience was the sensitive adjustment to phone orientation, but it never lost the page I was on, and I know I could've prevented orientation change by using the phone device orientation lock, so it's not the app's fault.
I'm giving this app high marks for delivering a great reading experience so far.
Ok reader 4/5
I mainly use for reading the Bible I bought. It is very difficult to navigate i.e. from bookmarks or footnotes back to the Scriptures. I like the dark background usually for at night but I find the contrast easier on my eyes. I would hope to see easier navigation soon.
Moment of silence 5/5
By Pasta lover8
The reason im using google play books is because i wanted to read Moment of Silence by sistah souljah. They gave me 7 dollars off my first book so i got it for 5.99z the app is simple and easy. No complaints here
The app doesn't make it clear how to purchase books on Apple devices. You have to buy the books on the website, then read the books in the app. I like the night reading function.
Keeps saying it didn't download all of my book! It will not download no matter what I do!
Not working 1/5
Importing PDF from Dropbox app, stuck in processing state forever. Tried twice but not work. I'll delete the app :(
Pschopath free 5/5
Reading this great book thanks to this cool app
