I JUST CAN'T SIGN IN! 1/5
Okay, please please fix this. I used Sora before and it was wonderful. They have a large selection of books and I love them. But right now I can't sign in! Everytime try to do it, if just says that something is wrong. I don't know why because my WIFI is very good. I really want to sign in and read so PLEASE HELP AND FIX THIS!
So great!!! 5/5
I absolutely love Sora! I have used it for a while now and have had no problems. I love to download audiobooks to listen to and to read ebooks. There is such variety of genre and level. I like how you can do an advanced search and narrow it down to almost exactly what you want. Although Sora doesn’t always have what I’m looking for, it’s still a great app! I do have a request though. I know you can earn badges in all, but I think you should be able to set reading goals! Teachers should set goals for theirs students and students should be able to set goals for themselves too. Thank you so so much! - A very happy customer
AMAZING!!!❤️ but... 5/5
Amazing app for kids! Has a ton of books for anyone’s level! No ads, no glitches seen so far. I recommend this app for any student! But, there is one issue. I have had quite a few books now that say they have an unknown wait. I have had books that say the wait is about 6 months, and I have waited more that half a year now and they still aren’t available. One tip to fix that, but overall it’s a really great app! ❤️ 📚 ❤️ 📖❤️
I Love Sora! 5/5
I absolutely love the book app Sora! I have no problems at all and everything is working great for me! I love to read and i enjoy being able to pick any book to read or listen too. I like that you could also read the books on the go! It’s a perfect book app for school!
Great app 5/5

5/5 GET THE APP!!!!
It’s good 4/5
It’ll be better if when you go to read you have the option to read either in landscape or portrait mode
It’s a good reading app but.... 4/5
By Diana the rockstar
Sora is an amazing app. I use it in school AND at home.
I find ALL the books I love to read that I cant find on other apps.
I love how it’s like a real library, s I feel like I’m at school instead of home, due to Covid.
You think it should be 5 star about what I explained? Well you’re wrong.
Why I gave it 4 stars is for 2 reasons.
1) It’s an online app, so when I want to read on the plane I cant.
2) There’s this glitch I hate. Whenever I want to read an interesting book about history, I click on the book, I click on read. All it shows is lines. Then I realize I’m not in a good spot. I go to a fully internet spot. Then it works. I realize it’s not the start of the book. When I get to the start, it shows those lines again. Then it instantly kicks me out of Sora. Please fix this.
Good app, but glitchy 4/5
By person 3464257
It’s aGreat app, but it keeps glitching out, so every few minutes I have to go back into the app
It’s good but I don’t like it 2/5
I don’t see why you should have to place a hold on an ebook-like, it’s digital there’s a million copies online... It also has a decent selection but most of the books I want to read aren’t even available
Only issue. Lag
Some problems.. 2/5
Is kinda good you know but here are some problems when I’m reading a book it freezes while I’m leaving it there anyone have the same problem..? 2nd problem. Pages are glitchy
It’s good but I have to use it for school so 3/5
Highly recommended 5/5
I personally used Sora for school and now at home, it’s really good and has MOST books if not all and I really like using it. I haven’t had any Advertisements or anything in my way and it’s easy to use.
I would give zero stars if I could. This app is indirectly brainwashing your kids with leftist, liberal agenda. Absolutely disgusting trying to manipulate kids. What a joke.
Good idea, Eh execution 4/5
I love Sora and i used to use overdrive before it got switched, so when I found out I could get the app I was excited. Now having it for about a week I’m realizing some issues. It constantly glitches out where the screen freezes and I can’t do anything. It also kicks me out of the app everyone once in a while. I like the app and the layout, I just would like to read without 15 minutes of shenanigans beforehand.
I love being able to go and check books out for free and I really like this app. It made me really frustrated though because even if I had perfect network connection it wouldn’t load and it said, these pages cannot load. Please check your network connection. Even if it didn’t do that it still took each page at least 30 seconds to load
The new update is kinda dumb and here’s why: 1/5
By okie dokie sir
Anyways, Sora, an e-reader, appears to have recently updated their app and added ten new achievements. All of these are in a new category called “subjects”. They ask you to read a book in each of ten different subjects. No biggie right? WRONG. I’m actually way too angry at them for making these subjects than I should be, and I’ll tell you why. The ten subjects are: Fiction, Nonfiction, Animals & Pets, Biography & Autobiography, Health & Fitness, History, Music, Mystery, Science, Science Fiction & Fantasy.… How are “Animals & Pets”, “Health & Fitness”, and “Music” WHOLE BOOK SUBJECTS???????? How does THAT make ANY sense????? Music would make sense if it encompassed all the arts, but animals & pets? What drunk employee suggested that idea? What are these? Books that feature fricking animals or pets??? I’m pretty sure you get how dumb this is, so I’ll stop ranting. Health & fitness makes some sense, if ONLY Sora wasn’t EXTREMELY focused on FICTION. In fact, fiction outnumbers nonfiction by TEN to ONE. So why are there so many OBSCURE nonfiction subjects, and then sci-fi and fantasy are just LUMPED together???? There are 2,028 fantasy and 638 science fiction books. However, there are 34 music books, 37 health & fitness books, and 45 pets books. Additionally, there are 737 mystery books, 358 history, 470 (auto)biography books, and 233 science books.
Phew… that was a rant. I wonder if I’ve justified my anger. But it’s fine. Thanks for listening though. Bye.
By my burger taste bad
Too many glitches
I WOULD RECOMMEND USING A DIFFERENT APP 2/5
By Leo Fenton
This app only gives you books that your school library has. So your school has to be logged onto Sora. But on Sora you have to put a hold on a book if someone is using it. I would recommend using another app
It’s a great app but there’s this weird glitch 3/5
By - a disapointed student
So whenever I read a book and I’m on the last page of a chapter, it gets cut short. This means that I miss the ending of every chapter all the time. I’ve noticed that this only happens when I read the keeper of the lost cities books. But other than this glitch, the app is great.
Very good app! Only one thing 4/5
By harry potter vs voldemort
The sensor that tells if you switch a page is very, very sensitive, and even if you swipe super carefully, it’s going to turn to a new page, even if you didn’t want to.thats my only problem, and the rest of the site is pretty good.
Got a new phone, didn’t let me back in on my account. 3/5
I got it for school, and then I got a new phone and everything I did on it— the awards, the lists, the assignments were gone— all along with my account since it didn’t save apparently. :(
Love but... 4/5
I love Sora but I don’t like that they don’t tell u when your book was wasted
Really Great App, One Problem 4/5
I am an 8th Grader and use this app all of the time to listen to books. Unfortunately, recently the app has been crashing after only listening to a book for about 5 minutes. I will note that this only seems to happen when my phone is off, but I am confused on whether or not it is my phone or the app. If Sora could look into this problem and resolve it, then this app would definitely get 5 stars. It is a great app though!
Lost all my books and progress 1/5
By The handsome she
I loved this app at first but all of the sudden all of my borrowed books are gone. I was halfway through a book and I’ve lost all my progress, I also can’t search for books anymore either. An hour ago I was listening to my book and now the app is completely useless. Do not download it unless you want to be disappointed and frustrated.
The concept is nice but... 2/5
I only recently got this app and I’m hoping to be proven wrong but right off the bat I see some issues. For one, even though they have access to your clever account, which I believe has your grade and lexile score, I was recommended books for 3rd graders despite being in 7th grade. And even the books that were “on level” had lexile less than a thousand and-age counts not reaching 200. My lexile score for the record was 1413.
This is the thing I have the most trouble with on kids websites. They seem to assume all of us are below average and group 5th graders in with kindergarteners in reading level. The next thing is the “fantasy” section. I have read many a book in this genre written in the last decade. So why are all the books on the websites not? I know old books can be good, but by now the writing pales in comparison to modern books that actually engage the reader. I can name hundreds of modern fantasy books yet they don’t have a single decent one.
I’m not sure how this works, and if it’s a problem with the rights and copyright and stuff that’s fine, but please make your system see what grade and lexile score your on. No dignified 7th grader is going to be caught dead reading “Spongebob: Surfs Up!”
Will not alert you that your loan is ready 1/5
This app is similar to Libby, but Libby is far superior. The main problem is that when you put a book on hold and it becomes available, the app does not let you know. The only way to discover that your hold is ready to borrow, is to open it each day to check. If you forget to open and check on the day the book becomes available, you lose your hold and have to go to the back of the line again. If you’re waiting several weeks for your hole to become available, sometimes you forget to open the app on a given day to check. Libby will notify you by email and phone notifications when your hold is available to check out. Until this app is updated with this feature, it only earns one star.
Great App 5/5
By Hufflepuff for the win
I used to use the online version of this app before deciding to try the actual app and boy I’m I glad I sucked it up and downloaded this. I love that I can read without WiFi and that I don’t have up sign in every time I want to read. Ever since stuff has been closing I’ve been having to buy books online but with Sora I am able to get them for free and read anytime. It’s really nice and convenient little library in your pocket. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone. Thank you for your time. I hope you enjoyed my fricken Ted talk.
One problem 3/5
The app logged me out and when I put my account it tells me that something went wrong. I’ve tried going on the website but it tells me the same thing.
This app does not let me put my school in...:/
I’m sorry 2/5
I’m sorry but this app just doesn’t fit me, I feel like I’m picky, and all I want to do is read/listen to these following books: Aru sha in the song of death, Warriors second series book 2 (I forgot what it’s called), Masterminds: Criminal destiny, and that’s about all that I can remember. So yeah, I feel like if one of the people who work for the Overdrive company, please consider adding these following books to all of your book apps, Thank you. ( I also forgot dragon on trial)
Please fix this! 3/5
I used to love sora so much! That was the reason I gave 3 stars. If there was not this really big problem, it would be worth 5 stars.
It began like this : I was reading a book called girl to girl. My parents said I was too young to read it. I was only 7 that time.
So I decided to close sora. You know those blank pages ?
I closed the app when I was on one of those. The next time I
opened the app, the page was still blank. But when I tried to turn the page, nothing happened! I tried everything I could but it just didn’t work! Then I had to delete the app. Please tell me why!
Yours truly, Luranda.
By Not really math
I love Overdrive abs have used it for many, many years with no problems but was forced to download and use this with the Audiosync program I use with my students. The app almost never works. It either shows the initial icon and then turns black, or gets stuck on the initial icon screen. I’ve reinstalled, restarted the devices, tried WiFi and cellular, even multiple devices - nothing works. I finally found a contact email and they said it’s not the app. Well... everything else works perfectly fine and this doesn’t. I hate when companies force you to use their proprietary software.
Opens books and books 3/5
By midnight cupcake
I like the app but, after I get a new book it opens it. Sometimes it is annoying. 😊. Recently it only lets me see the cover.I WHAT TO READ😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Its great but WHY MUST I REQUIRE A SCHOOL LOGIN also why must i select my school twice?
Epic! Is better 2/5
So on Sora when I want to read a book I gotta wait a couple of weeks or so.☹️ versus on epic you can open a book right there on the spot? Why do I gotta wait?am I missing something?
Sora is awesome, but theres an issue (I use the website) 3/5
Sora is a great app for reading, educational, but it keeps keeps doing this: It will have me on the book, I click on a picture then I can’t go to the next page. I have to keep reloading it so I can fix it. Also it’s kinda slow loading sometimes. Its awesome to use though.
In my opinion it’s honesty hot trash. I can never read a book because whenever I try to go to the next page my screen freezes and I have to reset Sora and then I try again same thing happened it’s a major problem and I can’t use this app anymore if it doesn’t get fixed.
Great app but.... 4/5
I really love to use Sora. But one thing that I would like to get notified for is when you have to return a book. Sora automatically returns ebooks/audiobooks which I don’t like. So I think Sora should notify you when a book needs to be returned. Overall great app :)
NOT APPROPRIATE 1/5
I downloaded this because my school made me and upon exploring it I found multiple books that are inappropriate. NO SUITABLE FOR ANY AGE!!! This vulgar app should be removed.
Won’t let me turn the page 3/5
Won’t let me turn the page I half to get out of the app go back in read one page then it won’t let me turn the page again so weird but good app still
Great but one issue 4/5
I am writing this during the COVID-19 pandemic. My school started using the library part to give kids books to read. I rely mostly on my school library for books, so this is very useful. However, I would love some lists. For instance, “if you like the Hunger Games, you might like......” Developers please read!
I love this! 5/5
I love how there is a timer and it stops after 30 minutes! One thing on the downside, it needs to rate books like tv shows. I got the book 13 reasons why not realizing it was a little mature. I start reading it and it just didn't seem like it should have been for me. And I didn't know at all! If there could be something to help this please let me know :) but besides that I love the app! It's useful right now since my school is not currently going. I also love how it shows you how many books and how many minutes you have listened to or read. Thank you for reading my ted talk. Get the dang app.
So awesome, Sora is. 5/5
This reading app is perfect to read anytime. You can really just read anytime, anywhere, as long as it’s downloaded.😁😁😁😁😁😁😇🙂👍😺😸
Major flaw 4/5
By turtle flaama
I think that Sora is a great app but there is one flaw that happens over and over again... Sora just freezes
Good books 4/5
By i heart pikachu 😁
I like the mangas
So I loved Sora, I read on it constantly. But one day I show up and it has removed all of my books. My activity tells me that nothing was returned, and claims I should have like 6 books. So I log out. Now suddenly I just don’t have an account there now? I have done hard resets, checked that it wasn’t my IPad, but no, Sora just removed my entire existence and life style. I love books and currently can’t get any physically and now I have no way to any at all.
