I’m now unable to upload books from my iPhone, to my Google Play Book library. This renders the entire app useless to me. It’s a shame, it’s been my favorite ebook app for years and now I will be forced to find another one. There’s no way to contact support either.
One of the nicest reading apps in terms of design, but really needs a lists feature
This is a serviceable barebones e-reader if you have to read a documents that isn't available in PDF or on Amazon Kindle. However, basic note-taking functionality is always broken on the iPad app. It is sometimes difficult to make notes and highlights; other times it's impossible. It's never easy. The text display is often not aligned with where the app thinks your fingers / pencil is, so it highlights the incorrect word. Adjusting the highlight is miserable because you have to grab the tiny circle at one end of the highlight and pull it, but this is very hard to do because the circle is not displayed in the right place. In addition, the pop up display for highlights and notes only shows up sometimes, and in many cases appears on top of the circle you are trying to move to adjust the text. Usually the result is that you cancel your own highlight and have to start over. If you succeed in getting the touch screen to register that you are trying to make a note and then manage to type your note in and save it, there's no guarantee you'll ever see it again: sometimes it fails to sync, other times it appears to be saved in your list of notes but doesn't appear on the screen when you look at the text.
It is a shame that one of the most venerable tech companies made this garbage app. While 30sec FF works fine, 30 sec REW oftentimes makes it go back some minutes. Also just pausing and playing again goes back 10 to 40 secs randomly. A true garbage for a google made app.
Literally the worst app ever! it doesn’t highlight text at times and sometimes it’ll highlight text I never wanted. It so unusable and terrible. The actual website wasn’t that good either. I would give it zero stars if I could
Unusable. Keep getting the message that something’s wrong.
I much prefer this app over Kindle for PDF and Word docs.
Won’t let me download books using data. Says I need to change my setting to enable cellular data and I did and still makes no difference
