Sora is a great app and I use it a lot. But there is one problem. I tried to log in on one of my devices and accidentally put in the wrong passcode and of course it said try again. But then when I tried again I clicked the sign in button a pop up showed up and said that it couldn’t find my account. I restarted the app and it still didn’t work. Then, I deleted the app and got it again and it still won’t work. I’ve done this several times and it’s still not working. I am very upset amped annoyed and really want to use this app.
The concept is nice but...
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!”
Great app! Just one pretty major thing...
I really like sora! So much, in fact, I have it both on my computer at school, and my phone at home. When I went to school today I found I couldn’t check out the audiobook I wanted, so I tried to log out the in again, but it still didn’t work. Then I tried to check out a regular ebook. And this worked, but I didn’t want the ebook, I wanted an audiobook because ebooks can make my eyes hurt. I came home, hoping to check out a book here, then read it at school. I tried and it wouldn’t even let me download a regular ebook. At this point I’m really annoyed so I log out then in again, it STILL doesn’t work. I DELETE THE APP, RE- DOWNLOAD IT, LOG IN, SHUT DOWN MY PHONE, COMPLETELY REBOOT, AND IT STILL DOESNT WORK. I rely on sora for reading and this has me REALLY mad.
