Me encanta 5/5
Si versión de lectura a fondo negro evita totalmente la jaqueca
Don't Update! 1/5
Since updating today, I can't load the book I was reading. I guess I'll delete the app and start from scratch, remembering never to update a Google app.
5 star app 5/5
Love reading on any device automatically syncs across with my google account
Such good. 5/5
Very reading. So words. Much literate.
All highlights are not saved in original page in new iPad 3/5
All highlights are not saved in original page in new iPad
Works good to me 4/5
I am fine with this app. The few books I have I can read through devices with no problem.
Works for now 4/5
Personal ePub upload is hit or miss... presumably due to vulnerabilities in loading varying ePub file structures
When it works, it's nice... I especially like the auto sync of highlights & notes to a google doc that I can then share with ease... synergies like that across an ecosystem of tools are a productivity force multiplier
Quietly Useful 5/5
By Ed The iPad Fan
I've never had a lick of trouble with Google Books.
The buggiest app that I am using 2/5
If I didn't have such good past experiences, I'd never use this app again. It is getting so buggy and I have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling.
Enjoying this every book
I love reading my books in this app and how it organizes my books to where I can read them I like the different color highlights
Best book reader 5/5
By O. Vega
Great app much better than iBooks
Cannot open the app after update 1/5
It's frustrating, cannot open the app anymore in the iPad.
App is busted AF. Downloads disappear every time I interact with the app. The introduction splash screen also pops up randomly even though I have been using the app regularly. It's a drag to re-download a book every time I open the app.
Good Read 5/5
I love this app
Play Books 1/5
By Big John 72
I don't like the app at all. The font is too small. It doesn't tell you how many pages in the chapter. It doesn't tell you how many minutes to read a chapter or the book.
It doesn't hold to a candle to IBooks or Kindle reader.
The app needs a lot of work
Bad reading experience 1/5
By Alan IOS Fan
It is 2016 and Google still can´t write a reading app, pages are skipped, can't adjust font size.
Bad experience overall.
Come on Google 3/5
Needs more functionality, smoother interface
App will not open after update 1/5
Constantly deleting books 1/5
I've downloaded my books for the last time. Moving everything to Amazon at this point. I'm deployed in a third world country with internet connectivity sparsely available and slower than molasses in winter. Books were the safe bet for entertainment and now I've lost all of them again.
Google update ruined this for apple users. 3/5
I love this app, but after the last update a couple days so, I can't read any book. It try's to load and just spins and spins and spins. I have deleted play books and re downloaded twice. Still won't work. Help!
UPDATE: Called support, they told me to do everything I already did. Even though there all numerous complaints on here since PlayBooks last update...they say it is an Apple problem. Looks like they don't care to resolve the problem with Apple users. Anyone have a suggestion of a replacement app for apple users?
Since update, app closes in seconds 1/5
Sadly, I won't be reading a book on this flight because the recently updated app will not stay open. Kindly address the issue, iPhone 7+... Ty
Freezing wheel 1/5
Since the update I can not read my books anymore. Before it wasn´t a pleasure considering other readers. But now it is unusable.
Horrible App 1/5
All my downloaded books were gone all of a sudden. They were here one day and then gone the next. Lost the position where I was on the book.
Unbelievable, only 17 people have rated this app. Is Google unpopular on iPad or iPad is loosing users?
Horrible App 1/5
By Serius at Silver
The book won't open. It is not the fault of my iPad, the book won't open on my HP laptop either. Thank goodness I can read my book on my mobile device or I would have wasted my money. I will not purchase any more Google books until I am convinced that they have fixed the bugs.
Cannot open the book after update 1/5
I read a book, than update the application and now I cannot open that book. I removed the book and download it again, but it doesn't help. I reinstall the app, but it also doesn't fix the issue. I can see just loading wheel while try to open that book.
Crashes constantly 1/5
Kindle iPad app blows this out of the water.
Needs some TLC 1/5
App doesn't download.
Used to be great now books don't load 1/5
By Samir SR
I just get a white screen with a spinning circle when I open a book. Used to be great and one day it just stopped working.
Reinstalled app and redownloaded books but no luck getting it to work :(
Love it! 5/5
As a former android user, I was pleased to know that I had no trouble switching over to apple. The app works seamlessly (and even better than it did before).
Not good 1/5
By patrick roisum
It worked great but now it wouldn't load at all.
Can't scroll 1/5
Can't scroll like iBooks. I would change to 5 stars otherwise.
Screw this. 1/5
I'm beyond sick and tired of having to re-download my books every time google sends even the smallest update. I have hundreds of books on this app and it takes hours to download all of them again. It's a ridiculous issue to have and they need to fix it. Also I'm tired of buying a book just for them to delete it because they had a falling out with the publisher. I've purchased the book, its mine. So stop deleting it!
Great app with a little problem 4/5
This app is great and has a problem to fix. After I downloaded my books on the app and then read it offline, all the books are gone. Never happened before the latest updates. Please fix it! 🙏
Sorting by category 1/5
Version 3.0.2 is ugly. What is with offline mode? My book shelf needs online and doesn't loading in subway. Don't save downloaded books and reset my styles for read from time to time. Fix it, please
Better than iBooks 4/5
By R.A. White
I have been a loyal Apple/Mac user for 15 years, so it's not easy for me to write this, but I have found that many Google Apps are surpassing their Apple counterparts. Such is the case with Google Books. The user experience with its beautiful and cool browsing and reading interfaces are, in my opinion, superior to iBooks. It has great reading/back lighting options and it just seems cleaner overall.
Useless book reader and Arrogant customer service 1/5
By JB 11-7-12
I was using the app in iPad Pro until the new iOS upgrade, since then the pages won't fit correctly on the screen. In each page a few lines gets cut off. I have sent a few messages to the the customer service explaining the problem but haven't gotten any response back. I have been waiting for an upgrade but unfortunately realized with the new upgrade they didn't address this problem, so for now it is a useless app.
??? Buggy 1/5
This was a great app until today when I found out ALL of my downloaded/offline books have been removed from my offline library with no explanation. I also lost the page I was reading on when I opened the book on my computer because it sent me back to the first page on my phone and then synchronized my pages without asking me if I wanted to synchronize. Please fix
Not as good as iBooks 2/5
By Lance E Sloan
I had been reading a public domain book in ePub format ("1984" by George Orwell, provided by Adelaide Univ.) using iBooks. I wished its sharing features were better, so I decided to try Google Play Books (GPB). Adding the book to the app was easy, but slower. The display of the book is not as good, though. iBooks shows the cover and title pages independently, as they should be. GPB doesn't, so it looks cheap. Making marks and notes in GPB is tedious. The selection of text ideas slow, changing a highlighted selection is impossible (it must be deleted and recreated), adding a note to an existing highlight isn't possible, selecting text on an existing highlight (to look up in the dictionary or online) is impossible, etc. Changing the orientation of the screen or the size of the font sets off a slow recalculation of what GPB should show on the screen, which is updated after several seconds. I've found that in some situations, it's important to have rotation lock enabled to avoid this slowness if my device angle happens to change just enough to trigger a rotation. However, I wish GPB would let me lock it into landscape mode sometimes.
I expected a LOT better from Google than this. It's very disappointing.
Needs more options 3/5
I am using this app for a while. It has so many good things, but definitely needs more annotation options.
Great Customer Support! 5/5
I submitted some feedback a couple of weeks ago for a rendering issue on my uploaded ebooks only taking up half the screen with the font size increased. This update today fixed that completely! Fast response time Google, thanks for taking care of that so quickly!
By Pastor Boris
I absolutely love play books, makes my study time so much easier.
My favorite way to read ebooks 5/5
Settings are clear and easy to use.
Books open where I left off, no matter which device I may be using.
A suggestion for improvement: more flexible sorting options.
Keep up the *very* good work..!
Great app 4/5
By wallet hub
I like be this app for reading on the go!!! I just wish that on apple it would automatically download books if you are offline!
This app works perfect. I prefer it over Kindle and iBooks.
Absolutely love Play Books 5/5
The only reader I'll ever use, EVER!
Easy cross platform option 5/5
A must if you have Android and iOS devices.
Horrible reading app 1/5
After 30 minutes of going through samples I didn't want and attempting to buy yet only finding sample options even after clicking buy got tiring. At least with iBooks I can actually you know get a book and it saves my place without the hassle.
I enjoy it because I can get my rockstars biography
Buggy, poor formatting 1/5
Just bought my first book from the Google Play store. The app constantly moves my place in the book. I tried to increase the font size and line spacing and it basically broke the layout, leaving half the page empty. Really bad compared to iBooks, Kindle or Marvin.
