Great. But really spending money on a book app

Ok i get it i get it not everything has to be free but still this much just to write more than one book it seems a bit much. I’d be happy if instead you couldn’t use some of the tools not just limit you from writing. Like the fact you have to pay to make comics that’s good i just really hate ho you make one book and then boom pay wall


Not Bad

So while I was downloading this app, I was reading through a lot of the reviews. I am surprised that people are complaining this much! I understand that you have to pay to get more than one book, however when I downloaded it I had very low expectations, based on the reviews. However, I started to write down some stuff, and the app does work very well!

Even though you can only make one book, It can be as many pages long as you want, which means you can make a real story!

I have one suggestion of how to use this app. I have a big exam coming up in science, and was thinking about how I could revise and study effectively. This app is very good for revision! If you create a book on this app, you can add all of your class notes to it. Then, you can click the share button, and press export to ePub. Then you can make it into a book on the app “books” and read through all your notes as a real story! As someone who struggles to get motivated to revise, this method has helped me as I absolutely love reading!

Just remember that you can only make 1 book, because I believe this is a sample app for the real one. I hope you found my tip for how to use this app helpful!

Have a wonderful day and stay safe! 🤩😁😉☺️😜

Basically trash

I’m not being harsh but, with the fact that you actually have to pay to make good quality books is ridiculous and I think you should update it so that people who install the app don’t have to pay for it because that is what bugs me. On the other hand I did give it a one star rating because it allows you to make at least one book for free. But I’ve showed my mum and dad and they said to not bother with it because you shouldn’t waste money on stuff like that, even if is for school. And yes i have installed the app and tried out making my first book. And no I’m not going to finish it. Another thing that bugs me is, its a bit strange how you have two apps even though they’re technically the same because you have to pay. That’s the end of my review, i would like it if you respond.
