Glad to have this 5/5
Haven't read books at all in the past few years but, starting to so I can have more information on things
Great and the prices are good.
Audible & iBooks Are Much Better! 1/5
Terrible. Very difficult to highlight while reading - You must press pretty hard, or soft, haven't quite figured that out yet. Also, it's difficult to see. The screen for this app on both the iPhone and Surface Pro are either too zoomed and blurry, or too small. Audible and iBooks are such better platforms!
Needs some rough edges to be smoothed out, but mostly works well and does a good job recommending like reads.
La mejor 5/5
Es la mejor app que he utilizado para leer libros, puedes añadir tus archivos PDF y guarda la página en la que te quedaste en todos tus dispositivos
Good ereader 3/5
Good for reading e books and from google so everything in one account; however the app on iPad feels quite laggy and can't find how to buy books on iPad. If only I could have bought books easier directly from Ipad I would have given it a 5 star
won't even open anymore, thanks google🖕🏽
This is the best reading app for mobile devices. Period. Anyone complaining obviously doesn't know how to use it. It's simple to use, and simple to transfer books from a computer. Love it.
So easy and great app 5/5
Really easy and great for reading or zooming in. Love this app
Great app! 5/5
I really like it! 4/5
I use this to read my textbooks when I am not home or when I do not have access to the internet. It is very consistent and easy to navigate.
Not A Bad eReader but 4/5
I'm an ePUB developer so I use a few different readers to proof my work on. I've got Play Books on my iPhone 6s+ and all in all, it's simple and works fine for the most part. However I'd like to see more features such as background color beyond just black, white and eggshell. The night light is too orange. Also it needs a scroll mode.
Love it! 5/5

Play books is the best thing to happen to me and it's so easy to use. They have the best selection of reads. Love!love!love!
Great app 5/5
Most enjoyed and enjoyable. A MUST.
App works great to read. Slow response on turning pages and searches. Horrible at highlighting - very laggy and hard to move blue points. When it does work it loses all of the highlighting from the previous day. Total waste of money on text books. Should have spent the extra money on the kindle versions. If they update I will redo my review.
By James Tiz
How the hell do u purchase a book all I can get is the dam samples
Great app 5/5
I like how it remembers where I stopped reading at even when I switch between different devices. It remembers without me having to bookmark the page.
Bad application 2/5
Well if your reading your book no way to mark your spot, if you want to print something there no way to do that to me not worth it
It's ok 3/5
It does it's job fine not great. Highlighting can be annoying sometimes and it seems that highlights don't always transfer between devices. When I upload a book it takes awhile to process it and won't complete the processing step until I go into another book then go back to library.
REALLY CLEAN AND GOOD 5/5
I love this app easy to read everything is clean and organized i recommend people to use this app.
By NC Sherman
Good reader does it's job well.
Great Source 4/5
Easily the best app for storing books and expanding your library.
Excellent App! 5/5
By Young Taco
The only reason I'm using this as opposed to the original "iBooks" is because I got a bunch of money off offers from Google Play for my first book purchase which resulted in a free book! I don't know why everyone is hating but I enjoy this app. Thanks, Googs!
Love it 4/5
Really nice app. I love it a lot, but it is missing something. It needs support for .CBR and .CBZ files. With this change, it'll be perfect.
Good but ... 4/5
By The Brit 2
A good app but I have experienced great difficulties in highlighting text in a number of books; it doesn't work properly. Otherwise, it does a good job.
Not sure I understand all the negative reviews 5/5
I do the majority of my reading on my iPhone and iPad, and for the past couple of years I've used iBooks, and have tried the Kindle and Nook Apps but I don't think any of these Apps compare to the experience of reading on Google Books. The formatting (when uploading ePubs and or buying an eBook from Google Play or somewhere else) is very consistent. Quickly being able to access the table of contents whenever I want provides as close to reading an actual book as possible, and I enjoy the eliminating blue light feature. Again, for an eReader I don't think there's a better App out there and it always syncs to each of my devices.
Love Google 5/5
Love reading my books on it, my iPad can be a pain in my arse about it, but I still enjoy Google better than Kindle.
The 7 strategies of wealth and happiness 5/5
Great book great app. Easy in the eyes. Love it!!!!
Should've downloaded this long one ago! 5/5
Best way to read books on the go! Love this app!!
Play Books 5/5
I use it all the time. Love that it is cross platform.
Quite happy 5/5
I use this primarily for reading free state and county histories for genealogy. Works fine
It used to work great on my Samsung phone. But on my new IPhone, the colors look awful and have a sheer tone to it. Also, the notes don't save correctly on the iPhone. Only reason I keep it is bc I have a Samsung tablet still and it does save over the information if you use the same google account. But I wouldn't recommend it unless you have at least one Samsung device.
I love this app! 4/5
This extends my library with books that arent available.. Thank you so much..
Solid app 4/5
Solid app. Works how I need it too all the time. Never have any issues with crashing. Interface could maybe be a bit more pleasing to the eye but overall quite satisfied. I recommend for sure
App keeps crashing! 1/5
All my downloaded books aren't showing up as downloaded. Crashes repeatedly. Getting deleted.
Not very user friendly 3/5
Search and highlight functions not very easy to use. Lots of good rare books though.
No good 1/5
It didn't keep my bookmark on my iPad,and isn't loading. Crappy.
Best selection of kids books 5/5
App works fine, running on an older iPad. Google seems to be the only service where I've found my son's favorite books.
Could be better 3/5
Not the best but it'll do !
Love this app! 5/5
Love this app because it is easy to use and has all the features I need to make my reading time perfect!
So awesome!!! 5/5
I love having my library sync across devices!!!!
Nice app!! 5/5
Nice app, easy to use and easy to find what I'm looking for. Love how I can switch from my google phone to my iPad and it'll keep up with what page I'm on.
Poor accesssbility 1/5
"Speak Screen" support is terrible. It does one screen at a time. It doesn't turn the page. After it shuts off the book can't turn a page forward at all.
iBooks is much better. It even turns the page for you when the screen is off.
Won't Upload Library 1/5
By Struggling to see
I just bought a book on Google because I struggle to read text in a book. I bought the book for a college course I'm taking. After I purchased the book, I downloaded the app. After logging in, the app couldn't upload my library. It'd be great if they fixed it but if not, I'd really appreciate my money back.
I like it 5/5
I have my entire comic book collection here and I feel like it's tight and organized.
Ok as a reader but night vision is weird (might take getting used to). No intuitive way to go from reading a sample to purchasing the book. I'm new to e-readers but, at this point, I prefer Nook.
Great app 5/5
I use Siri to read to me.
I love using Play Books. It's a great way to keep track of all of my books.
