This is AMAZING but I had some problems

In the beginning when I had just downloaded this app it was AMAZINg the best app ever but as I kept reading books the app stopped working they instead changed the app so that it would be in french and I really wanted to read the hunger games 😤😤😭

Best reading app yet!!(?)

This app so far is good. Both in terms of the functions offered: highlighting & annotations and the ability to see all of them for each book. The social element is also quite useful - being able to share high kites sections.

Also good use of 3D Touch.

As far as the selection of books goes it's quite good. I did have an issue when wanting to buy one book that wasn't free. Logging into my account on the website was a tedious experience for me. I'd also say you should be able to buy the book inapp.

Rubbish app

Compared to Kindle this app is crap. Stupid gimmicks that add no value, endless clicks etc. Take a lead out of kindle. When I click the app I want to go back to reading my book. Not some crap you want me to read. I got a book free so had to use this app but it will be deinstalled as soon as I have finished. Total rubbish
