Google Play Books app reviews

  • Frustrating 1/5

    By natevan2012
    I love my collection I have accumulated....when I can read them. Without fail, I can begin to read and suddenly the app will freeze. So I move off my iPad to my iPhone and it does the same thing. It’s only certain books. Please fix this. I already prefer Nook but I enjoy using both. I may have to drop Play Books all together.
  • Not working for iOS 11! 1/5

    By NikkiSheehan
    I’ve had this app for years now and every 3 updates it stops working then fixes its self! As of this moment it won’t even open! Please fix this! I’ve paid for my books and I’d like to read them.
  • Needs update for iPhone X 3/5

    By elementzero
    Screen size is still formatted for previous model iPhones
  • Can’t highlight only on iPad 3/5

    By Swim'n Bird
    I just feel like if I can’t highlight stuff, this is kinda trash lol. Am I wrong though?
  • Error Fetching library, not working on iOS 11.1.2 1/5

    By 쬬
  • Thank God for this app! 5/5

    By Luap9876
    Since iBooks started shifting parts of my library to the cloud by some means I can’t control, I’m never confident of my access when traveling. Play Books is the answer. Easy to use and fast. Best of all, I control which books are available on my device
  • App missing key things 3/5

    By Joshua Sean
    App is ok but missing some key features. 1. Not able to change page style when on landscape. Will only do 2 page instead of 1 page. 2. No auto night mode 3. Would like scrolling feature instead of just page turn. Will have to go back to Apple’s iBook until these features are addressed...
  • I love reading 5/5

    By FirmGraphics
    This is the best cloud book app ever.
  • Crashed. A Mess first open 1/5

    By RCB99
    Downloaded app selected some books. Error messages, crashed, app a mess. Deleted app. Joke. Waste of time.
  • Deletes the wrong books 1/5

    By JATX120
    Be careful when deleting books.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By Randall King
    The app works perfectly and does what you'd expect.
  • iPhone X 3/5

    By iReviewit2foru
    iPhone X support please. I love Google Play books, but I would love it even more if the app supported the iPhone X’s display.
  • Poor accesssbility & no iPhone X support 3/5

    By squalamack
    "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.
  • Play Books Great, EXCEPT... 4/5

    By Azimi
    ... that though I PURCHASE a book, I can’t even loan the dang thing to anyone. Would be 5 Stars if I could loan something I own. Quite ridiculous if you ask me, or anyone I’ve talked to about it. I get you can’t let people turn into book dispensaries, but come on.
  • Only works sometimes 2/5

    By Nog13R
    As title states this app only works sometimes I try opening a book to just get the spinning wheel as it try’s to load my book
  • Doesn’t support iPhone X 1/5

    By NDLVid
    It doesn’t support iPhone X which is a real pain
  • Doesn’t support iPhone X screen 2/5

    By NickGTV
    Would be much better for reading
  • Cross-Platform a Plus 5/5

    By Ed The iPad Fan
    This software does the job, though I don’t like the interface as much as Apple Books. I use this one almost exclusively though because I can open my books on almost any tablet or phone, not just Apple ones.
  • Awesome! 5/5

    By Blackie Sleaze
    It's great to find a place where you can find all the interesting things you want to read about! And mostly for free. Did I say that out loud? Oops. Fantastic app!
  • Favorite reading app 5/5

    By ASL Shannon
    Great app! Easy to use.
  • Flawless User Experience 5/5

    By Sethzo
    Reading experience is flawless on iPhone. Syncs reasonably well when I switch back and forth between reading on Android to conserve battery on the iPhone. Most of the books I buy are cheaper from Google than from Apple.
  • Loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads 1/5

    By Gordy912
    Cant access my books. Just shows that little spinning circle thing.
  • Seriously, the worst app for reading 2/5

    By Dazaf
    I just used this app because I had 5 bucks back to get a book on Google play. But Truth be told, the 5 dollars don't worth the lack of quality of this app. Highlighting text is very limited, and it does not sync properly when you are reading in multiple devices. Furthermore what you highlight in one device does not show in the other. Useless app
  • Great but needs to be optimized. 3/5

    By Chood99
    Please optimize for iPhone X screen!!
  • It kind of works 2/5

    By Booknoir
    Some times it works other times it just fails and fails badly. Google still doesn’t seem to understand ePub or support what is possible. Interaction is clunky and slow or non responsive. Doesn’t always render correctly and swear they’ve been sending PDFs that don’t reflow and look horrible.
  • Thank God for Google 5/5

    By MrsEvilBrooks
    I'm so thankful that Google decided to digitize and preserve the writings that may have been lost in this digital era. Their work has been a treasure trove for people like me who feel that the only true way to have a complete picture of our past is to continue to read the writings of those who have preceded us. And if we don't know our history we are sure to repeat the worst parts of it. Thanks, Google. Now I can take thousands of interesting and thoughtful people with me in my relatively tiny purse.
  • :) 5/5

    By inksdy
    I get to read books yay!
  • Slow and impossible to use 1/5

    By Himerax
    In some reason some books shows spinning wheel for a long time after page flip. Device: ipad air 2. Isbn of ‘bad book’ 9785496029513
  • It got jammed when i open particular book " Indian Polity by M Laxmikant " 1/5

    By WikiBhati
    I think this is the problem with that book because this same problem comes in my google playbook app also . The book is Indian store " Indian Polity - M Laxmikant fifth edition "
  • Was confusing to get a book via this app on an ipad 3/5

    By Kindlejunkie
    Nothing was explained when I purchased the book, it almost looked like only available for Androids. Finally googled something to find out what to do to get the whole book, not just the preview.
  • Okay 3/5

    By Gabbydiaz97
    Wished the highlighter feature worked better !!!! And that I could see the a full list of books a could purchase right from the app. I hate the recommended section and the articles.
  • Great on both platforms 5/5

    By Praetorian farce
    I've had this on both android and iPhone. Excellent experiences on both.
  • Great App 5/5

    By MenzaMenz
    Have Play Books on all my devices. A must have.
  • Works when it works 4/5

    By Tqwertyhffjgagjjfsfgschgc
    Minus a few glitches that happens every so often: 1when I remove a downloaded book and the app doesn't open until I uninstall and redownlaod the app (rarely) 2. Doesn't handle embedded footnotes well. (75% had issues) It works great for reading books on the go. Would like to be able to buy books from the app but I guess that's a limitation of running on an iPhone instead of a google phone.
  • Not good for text books. 1/5

    By jdgubert
    After purchasing two text books on Google Play Books for the current semester, I’ve come to realize that this is not a good app for students. There are good things: the search is powerful, as one would expect from a Google product, and the navigation is easy. Unfortunately, problems make the app unusable. The syncing of those highlights from the web version shifted by a word or two. The highlighting process is slow and resets the view to the top of the page after each highlight. But most frustratingly, the app regularly freezes and shuts down when navigating notes and highlights. This particularly frustrating when attempting to reference notes that have already been taken. This is a well-reviewed app, and I’m sure it’s great for casual reading, but if you would like to have your textbooks on your iPad, don’t rely on it. You’ll only be left angry and wanting to throw your iPad out the window.
  • I use this app instead of iBooks 5/5

    By Nyatan
    Robust and versatile app.
  • Great and... 4/5

    By DVW70
    Wish you could rotate the page on IPhone
  • Crap 1/5

    By LittleStar8
    App doesn’t save my place where I left off in the book when I exited out of the book. The highlighting feature works like crap and they don’t even have yellow highlighting. Amazon Kindle app is much better.
  • iPhone X 1/5

    By Wiley50
    Staying one star til it’s optimized for iPhone X. Been a month, no excuse.
  • Great. 5/5

    By mahmoodtala
    better than iBooks, especially for scientific books.
  • Bad on iPhone 1/5

    By the google book lover
    The text is not clear on iPhone. It's fine on Android. the experience on iPhone is just awful.
  • Great on a large screen 5/5

    By Shoes NYC
    Most of my reading is on my tablet which has a larger screen than my phone. I think the tablet is just mix of size and weight. The google books app is well set up for that usage. I recommend it. I use it for textbooks, novels, and the occasional graphic novel. I've had no problems with any of those formats.
  • App crashes every time 1/5

    By Polymailrules
    Crashes every time I try to use it
  • Very useful 5/5

    By timestorm0
    I love the format it displays the books and pages with many good features
  • A Lack of iPhone X Support 1/5

    By ParmvirC
    I loved using Play Books to read as it has all of my books in one place, but the lack of iPhone X support has me looking for better alternatives.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Aaron Casey
    This app is amazing
  • Wonderful Reading Experience!!! 5/5

    By William071234
    I enjoy the Google Play Books selection, variety, and prices. More specifically, I enjoy being able to save my notes and highlights in my Google Drive for future referencing. The Google experience is simply the best.
  • Give us some Android features 4/5

    By RafoskyOsky
    My only complain is that it doesn't have all the features that it has on the Android platform. I would love to have the option to organize the books that I'm currently reading and the ones that I've read and the ones that I haven't started to read as I can do on Android. Please Google, give us that option too.
  • Google Needs To Improve 1/5

    By Cvcded2324
    This app is terrible. The text in some of my books is blurry. Some of my books are clearly scanned in and I am not talking public domain books these are recently released. I am done purchasing books in the Play Store. There are also times when books disappear from my library and need to be downloaded again. You would think they would put a little more effort in user interface too. Google needs to focus on what they do best SEARCH ENGINES !
  • Another great google product 5/5

    By Yvndbdkyrhdh
    App is simple and easy to use. Downloaded it because I can go cross platform with it. Weirdly enough, it's always synced right on my phone, but doesn't sync page properly on my android phone. Does keep notes and bookmarks though.
