Very nearly excellent

I've been using Spritz fast reading applications for a while. BookShout is a good app in that it gives you a nice clean environment to read from, whereas some of the other apps superimpose the Spritz window over the 'regular' text. Another advantage BookShout has is that it allows you to increase your reading speed in increments of 10 words per minute. The major disadvantage though is that you can only add new books onto your book shelf via the BookShout shop, and you can't drag and drop books into the app using the iTunes interface, as you can with similar apps - so that's why I'm giving four stars and not five. Very good, but not excellent... yet!

Having “bought” a book you must sign in every day to read it

I bought “The Lord of the Rings” from the publisher Harper Collins. Instead of being able to read it freely on my iPad, it requires that I use BookShout. This app frequently requires me to log in to read the books. I resent that. Having supposedly bought a book, I feel I should be able to read it freely on my devices without having to sign in. Signing in is inconvenient and time consuming. Also if there is no signal like is often the case on tube or train, I would not be able to read “my” books at all.

Really Bad

I tried this website after receiving a promotion, but soon closed my account in frustration.

Terrible quality of books, an app which only works when it feels like it, no active Support... no. Going back to my reliable Kindle.
