I thought it would be great to have the Netgalley app on my iPhone, but I haven’t tried reading any books with it, as it can’t even get my shelf right. It’s got some of my current books (the ones I’m about to read), then it’s got a random selection of my previous books that I’ve submitted reviews for. It’s not even the last 20 books, it’s just a totally random selection.

Does what it says

Let’s you change fonts, spacing, font size. You can enable scroll mode. Every book also has a day counter so you’ll always know when it’s going it be removed. Only issue I have is that my reading position is sometimes not saved when I don’t exit the book via the “back” button (and instead let my screen lock). People have busy lives and if I need to jump off the bus and forget to close the book, it should save the page l‘m on.

Utter shambles

This is as if someone started to design an app at 9 o’clock in the morning and went home at 5 and thought ‘that’s it, can’t be bothered with any more’. It’s not just incomplete, it’s barely out of the design stage. Can’t find my books—or at least, only six of them, and I have many, many more. Take it off the App Store, design something usable and then come back to us. Total waste of space.
