One of the latest is Bookful, which — as its tagline promises — brings books to life through augmented reality (AR)… In a word, it’s delightful.” - Parent (Brightly)

Good, not Perfect

I want a fluid experience when using an app, especially a subscription service. I really wanted to love this app. I signed up on my iPad, and wanted to use it on my phone. Not an option. I searched the FAQ, and tried everything to connect on the phone. No luck. This is extremely disappointing. I should be able to pickup the phone and automatically connect to the service after subscribing on my iPad. Get this fixed, or lose a potential client.

Not bad otherwise ,

Shows promise, but improvements needed to justify the price

The AR animation concept is engaging and my daughter is keen to read more of these books, but the library is far too small to justify the $60 per year subscription, much less the $130 lifetime unlock. At the rate my kid reads, she’d be done with them all in a month or two. Library needs more books.

A few technical improvements to suggest: (1) insert longer pauses between page turns — sometimes the next page even interrupted and cut off the current one, (2) slow down the narration a bit, (3) highlight the words one by one in the captions below the book, to match the narration.

All that said, I see the potential for a 5-star app here, with a much expanded library! In the meantime we’ll probably subscribe just month-to-month.

Hi - thank you for the feedback and suggestions, we are glad that your daughter loves Bookful! We're working hard to add new books every week and our library is constantly growing. We also do our best to provide various subscription offerings so that no matter what works for you, you have that option.

Great but will get expensive. Family Account Subscriptions????

I love this app and my kids are amazed by it, but having to buy the books will get expensive. The description says there are subscriptions but when I downloaded none were available only a book package. Would give a 5 star if they had the subscriptions but probably wouldn’t have downloaded if I had known that you have to buy each book. I recently downloaded to my ipad (6th generation) and it is very glitchy on the iPad but the iPhone version is awesome. Also, if you have multiple devices you cannot share purchases between devices.
