Copy feature; page formatting 3/5
Many words aren’t found in the dictionary, and it would be handy to be able to copy foreign words or phrases to plug into Google Translate for translation.
Page formatting (and chapters) leaves a lot to be desired. Just finished Middlemarch and found it impossible to figure out where I was in the book and how much remained. Page “breaks” seem to be in awkward places and errant touches on the screen can send you to far off chapters.
It is an amazing app
Missing critical components 2/5
I’ve only had the app for a couple days and I was really happy about the “pay once” that was relatively cheap for all of the audio books. Having only gotten half way through one audio book, I’ve been REALLY frustrated by the facts that
- I can’t pause the audio and can only stop it by closing the app
- I can’t place book marks to save my place anywhere so I’m always shutting the app to talk for half a second then spending five minutes trying to find where I was
- when a chapter ends, the automatic continuation skips a chapter and I have not realized that before and missed big plot points by skipping entire chapters.
Even though those are the only things I’ve seen, they’re driving me crazy. I am NOT one to complain and be negative, but I really want this fixed. Why bother having a pause button if I can’t use it??
I can’t register 3/5
I would give this app more stars but it won’t let me register. Whenever I try to access the support and FAQ link it comes back with “403 forbidden!” I get the same response when I try to go to the developer’s website. I wish there was someone to contact for help and I wish I could use the features that come with registering an account.
Astronomical Battery Drain from this App 1/5
My subway commute is a little over an hour, I’ve found that watching downloaded netflix movies, playing phone games during that hour will at most take 10-15%off my battery.
In comparison, an hour of this app for some reason - with cellular data, bluetooth and wifi turned off, and background apps closed - takes 50-60% of my battery life.
This is devastating because I enjoy reading, and back when this app was Freebooks, it didn’t seem to drain as much of my battery life.
60% of battery life in an HOUR?!

By Pearline Sauer
This app helps me keep track of all my books that I have, and read.
Love but needs more books 5/5
Love this app! Only I wish they had more books. I started a book and figured out that it was a trilogy so I wanted to get #2 but I could not find it on the app.
Can’t open books in my library 1/5
Just did the update and I can’t open any of the books previously in my library!
Good update! 5/5
Wiped out all crash cases for me! Easy to use, faster than before, great selections of books! Well done!!
No longer works... 1/5
By J C xxxx
...crashes whenever I try to open any ebook.
Crashes with new IOS update 1/5
Useless app now. Completely crashes!
I have not used this app for a few weeks during that time there was an update, now none of my books will open. When I try to open a book the app closes. I have tried shutting off my phone and turning it back on. Nothing works.
I paid $2.99 for this app and now I get adds about your audiobook app, if I wanted to listen to books I would have bought an audio book app.
I expect the next revision to fix the audio book adds buy giving me what I paid for no adds.
It won’t work 1/5
Can’t make app open are use it to try and find book titles to pick from
Great free books 5/5
Also has audio books!
App crashes 1/5
Consistently crashes when trying to open book.
What happened? 2/5
This used to be a great app... one of my favorites for reading extracurricular/fun books where I could zone out. Now I can’t save a spot or bookmark nor can I turn pages. Also every time I go to browse my “library” of downloaded books the app crashes. This was a great app. What happened?
Not worth a second look 1/5
I got this app as a means to read read books. The documentation makes it impossible to know which items may be audiobooks. On locating one title, I was never able to launch the reader. I accept that free apps need to be supported with advertisements, but every change of screens launches an ad for Audible.
Keeps crashing 1/5
Used to work fine. Now every time I try to open a book it crashes.
By lizzie b:)
This apps great but it keeps closing every time i open a book. Silly. FIX IT PPL!
N.O, Not Today... 1/5
If you can't spell the word "releases" right (realeases) let alone have the books I am looking for, I don't want anything to do with this app. Don't get it! It's a waste of your time! That was only a few of the many problems this disappointment was...
By dubstep hammy
They don't have warrior cats I typed " warriors " " warrior cats" all I got was girl warriors warrior people IDK ABOUT THOSE ( no offense to their writers) I WANT ERIN HUNTERS BOOKS AND I WILL NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP AGAIN UNTIL THEY HAVE ( at this time I'm writing) THE ERIN HUNTERS 56 BOOK IN THIS SERIES and they don't have my favorite chapter books either that's why I rate it 3 but I would rate it 2 1/2 but I can't
Used to be great, now crashes... 1/5
This app used to be really great! It offers a good selection of free books, and back then I even paid to remove ads. Now, though, the app crashes every time I try to open my library. Sadly, it is no longer usable.
Another Failure 1/5
Hmmm. Can’t read if app keeps crashing. And then, ask me to rate 5 stars? This app is a sad commentary on the poor performance that is being allowed to be released.
Crashes as soon as I try to open a book. 1/5
I have read several books I have downloaded. Not anymore. Every time I try to open a book to read on my iPad, the app.
immediately crashes. Everything goes black. Then the iPad home screen appears. Looking at the poor ratings posted in the App. Store, it appears many have experienced this problem. It appears that the company could care less since it has yet to fix the issue.
Every time I go to open a book the app just crashes. I tried it with multiple books all having the same outcome.
Great application, wonderful books 5/5
Ads for Audible pop up and interfere with app navigation whenever I reopen or switch back to the app. The ads are Not subtle; not ignorable. The ads take over the whole screen and I have to tap a close button to dismiss them. Maybe I should pay the $10 for ad-free, but the way this app is going makes me doubt the developers.
I agree about the issue of no bookmarking. It DOES have page numbering. But for the classic book I’m now reading, the page numbers restart with each chapter, and there is no index/table of contents listing the chapters. I have not had the crashes others are reporting.
Also, links in this store to the developer website and support do not work.
It offers a big library of free titles and I don’t know of a good competitor. So I’m giving two stars, and still using it.
This app used to be great. Why the disappointing changes?
Can’t register 1/5
Tried several times to register. Used my Apple account (nope), tried two other email addresses (nope, nope). Its registration page has no Enter button at all, doesn’t respond to the keyboard. It has a button to register via a Facebook. That’s a Nope from me. Bizarre app on iPad. Has incorrect description of one of the first books I selected. Kind of a mess.
Was a great app but no longer 👎 1/5
By Ninja Bob 62
The app crashes as soon as you try to open the book to start reading it!! Every time!!! Please fix this soon. The app on my iPad works great but not on the iPhone???
Crashes every time 1/5
It crashes every time I open a book. The ads work just fine, though!
From hero to zero 1/5
Have used this app for years through many changes and versions. It is now the worst! Books do not open...at all. Tap the link for support and it takes you to a 403 Forbidden web page. I’ve even waited and come back to it in hopes they would get things fixed. Nope.
That’s the new name of this app.... Nope.
