Very Satisfied!!! 5/5
Getting books onto the app and reading books on it is very easy. I especially like that any book I upload on the app using one device automatically is uploaded on every other device in which I've installed the app.
Digital format 4/5
I'm not typically a fan of digital reading because I like the feel of the pages of an actual book. But I only recently started using the app and have enjoyed it so far.
Works great across all devices! 5/5
Page turning is better than the Apple books app in my opinion too.
Super buggy 2/5
Changing text size or background color only affects half of the page or to that point in the book. Seriously? My kid could write better software...
Thanks for bringing definitions back 5/5
Thank you. Now if you want you can make it even better by being able to tap on any word and have the definitions pop up right under the text. No pop up screens nothing intrusive, just a quick definition or translation under the selected word.
Great app! 5/5
Forget buying a Kendal 5/5
This is much easier and convenient. I like reading on my phone and laptop. Carrying around another thing doesn't really make sense once you have this app.
Very good 5/5
By Music For The Juan
Very good but not perfect, an organizational system would be nice, as would more ways to find recommendations. But worth 5 stars
Nice but 3/5
It's a nice app to view your purchased books on iPad but I wish there was an easy way of copying and pasting. It's virtually impossible to copy a link from a book and pasting it on a browser.
Not working 1/5
Slow to open, doesn't render files correctly and poor quality. Keeps stopping with circle going to load a novel of text, won't allow me back to library. Bad reading experience. Google should and can do better, or maybe not.
I use it as much as Kindle 5/5
Lots of free books and easy access to online definitions
Great Reading 5/5
I have read more than forty books on playbooks. If I change from my i-phone to my laptop, it tells me what page I was on on the other device, and takes me to that page. I can change the size of the type -- something you can't do with a print book. Great program!
Pleased with it 5/5
Good app to read your books
A solid reader 4/5
By Books by Google
This is a reliable app without the bells and whistles. It's to the point and solid. A must have app for your device especially if you have your own ePub collection. Easy to use across multiple devices and platforms.
Good app 5/5
Espectacular, puedo leer con libertad 4/5
Los libros que uno quiere a su alcance
By Salinger 556738
Like that I can read on device or on computer and they sync - all super easy
Great app! 5/5
I love this app so much. It definitely has great books and it's easy to access rather the carrying around a book all day. It's more convenient as well because most people carry a cellphone and to be able read on it is super great. It's a great app and fairly cheap.

This is amazing
Love it! 5/5
By Doug U
Although, I've seen a few bugs where some books won't load on my computer, the app seems to work perfectly. I enjoy having all my books at my fingertips when I'm waiting in line for something. Thanks for the great app!
Love the app! 5/5
By Cool weather lover
I use it on my iPod, iPad and chromebook. I love the reading quality experience and selection of books, other online stores don't have. So thank you Google!
Glad I downloaded it 5/5
Works very well.
Does the job well 4/5
By Marlin T
I enjoy the fact that it works just as well on the iOS system as on the android. The same functions and features so I don't miss a beat.
Great way to read a book & try before you buy
Pretty good. 4/5
By Ayman The 1st
Play Books is a great reading app all around. This one isn't as mature as the Android version, but it's not too shabby.
Every time I try to open the app, it immediately crashes. I've tried re starting, re-downloading and what not. Please fix this! :(
Fix it 1/5
Books will not come up as "finished" when I finish a book. Fix this so I can organize what I have and haven't read or finished yet.
Great App 5/5

Found some books through google that weren't on Amazon

I luv it
Not bad on iphone 4/5
Notice a lot of differences between my android tablet and my iPhone. If I could I'd still use my tablet but it's old and battery doesn't stay charged long. So I end up using my iPhone. I run into an issue every now and then with the books not being downloaded but since it's a phone I just download them again.
I love it 5/5
I can read my books whenever and wherever I want. I don't have to struggle to look for my books or worry bout bookmarking to keep my place. One of the best apps I've tried so far.
Best reading app 5/5
I found it as a great reading app with many options
Great books store 5/5
I like google books has great books and cost are good.i use my on my iPhone.
I don't know what happened. I've used versions of this app on both Android and iOS for years. Lately, books take 15 or 20 minutes to download, if at all. The spinner hangs and blinks and resets.
No problems... 5/5
I have had no problems loading books or reading them on my I phone. The books are VERY reasonably priced, I got 3 newer books on Google Play for the price of one hardcover!
Finding the books want 5/5
With this APP I've been able to find the books that I like to read, while waiting in Doctors offices, etc.
My go-to 5/5
This is my preferred reading app. Google could pay it more attention as far as features and updates, but it's the the most functional of its ilk.
Terrible for avid readers. 1/5
I was so frustrated with this app. I just tried my first book. When I would close the app it wouldn't remember where I was reading. It crashes twice. It also made highlights I didn't make and forgot highlights I did make. Then when I tapped on a highlight it took me to a random place in the book and I had to flip though several chapters to figure out where the highlight was. Overall incredibly frustrating. I'll stick to Kindle and iBooks.
Great Overall 4/5
Love this app. I wish they had more of the titles that I look for, it seems like amazon has more titles but it's great overall!
Great Reader App 4/5
As a reader app it does the job solidly! I can easily read any book I have purchased through Google however the browsing abilities of the app are severely lacking. I don't want to peruse articles as much as I want to look for more books I might find an interest in. When opening the app there is a decent "recommended for you" list but with no way to change or extend the list, search a new list or simply refresh the list without going through a "build your interests" type form. Obviously, I can browse on a desktop or laptop but that isn't as convenient as being able to do it from the same device I just finished reading from.
It could also benefit from manipulating the screen timer. It's quite frustrating to constantly have to unlock the phone because the screen times itself out on every page.
Seems not to work with iPhone 1/5
This is one of the glitchiest apps I've used, almost useable but even if you manage to get to the book itself it cuts off pages. Really surprised that a google product is this bad.
It's not working!!!! 1/5
By K Gerd
My book stopped loading so now I can't finish it!!! Great! :(((
I'll never use this app again!!!
A great way to have electronic books at hand. Great for downloading and having good airplane reading. As a Family member, I also have access to my wife's library.
Solid App 5/5
By Universal Article
It's been solid for me. No issues, no crashes.
It's easy to access, and fun to use.
The Internet Is Upon Us 5/5
In today's world we now have the feature make books with the help of the internet. Years ago you couldn't have this feature which meant that you had to write on paper and all that other stuff! I expect Google to do good on this app!
Give us shelves/lists! 4/5
I love that the app is lightweight and simple, and that I can upload epubs and access from all my devices with my place and notes synced. The only thing I really wish it had is a shelving or tagging system. Really don't understand why this is missing! Seems easy to do.
