Service is good, however, the UI and UX need some work. The auto download feature never worked for me. Some settings and their descriptions are not clear. Many elements in the app does not follow typical iOS design guidelines. Also, the keyboard on iPad is not supported.
Gotta hand it to manga and LNs for rocking, and kadokawa (book walker) for being a real part of that. This app works but is not intuitive. I think it has real potential if sufficient attention is paid. Getting bookshelf skins for your franchise is great fun tho. Hope to see more development of this!
The Authorization thing is really annoying although I typed in my password about 14 times it still wouldn’t let me get anything or do anything
I used the app to reset my password and it wouldn’t go back to the login screen when I tap the “back” button
I can’t sync accounts across my iPhone and iPad. App won’t let me login on the other device. The only option is to register.
App crashes after showing the book walker logo and then a black screen.
兎に角使いづらい、次のページが表示されるまでラグがある、上と下にあるアプリの項目が非表示に出来ない、日本のサイトでは¥480の物が¥780になってる。 Horrible aplication, have a lag when go to the next page, dont have any way to hide a aplication source when was reading and the price is different in japan site(¥480) and the price in this aplication(¥780)
App seems poorly optimized for iOS. No integration with app store purchases for books. Limited control over fonts, sizing, etc. No integration of English global shop. Just use Safari to see global site. UI is kind of clunky. Fan light novel apps are better made than this. Pretty disappointed overall seeing this come from such a big company, but also not surprised.
Honestly after hearing so much about this service I was expecting a higher standard of quality. There needs to be more options in font and format settings and the background colors are awful. Editing paragraph spacing, being able to continuously slide down, and just some other general ease of use options would be greatly appreciated. I'd be great if I could just read these in the iBook app.
I really like BookWalker as I can integrate and view my purchased items from all its three sites (Taiwan, global, and Japan) in one single app. The app itself, however, definitely needs a lot of improving. Typography is really badly designed. I hope the app could support more fonts and allow for more reading options such as line spacing. I understand it is common to read a Japanese book that is vertically aligned, but since Japanese do read horizontally aligned books, I wish the app could support horizontal alignment as well.
