Selection gets better! But app issues...

The selection of books gets better all the time... I'm regularly surprised to see new releases available here to borrow. Very much appreciated. The app is a bit of a pain from time to time (iOS 16, iPhone XR)... like another reviewer mentioned, leaving the app and returning sometimes results in a blank page and the need to force close the app. Highlighting can also be a bit hit or miss and I don't think it's possible to highlight across screens. I'm also not aware of any way of exporting highlights. Bulk deleting from the library would also be great... I've dozens of books in the library that relate to previous pieces of work and are no longer relevant.

Developer Response ,

Hey David! Just updating the reply to let you know PDFs are now available to download on the app. As this is something you asked for so we would love to hear your feedback on it (if you need access to Perlego, let me know and I can sort out another trial for you) and how you would rate Perlego now that we have this feature.

Perlego is wonderful

Many people says they prefer proper paper books to the electronic versions. This , as a recently retired academic, I don’t understand. Perlego has allowed me to read instantly any kind of books both offline and online which are available on its platform without worrying of buying them separately like kindle or other E-reader platform does.. as I can buy subscription on monthly or yearly basis and most importantly can cancel the subscription at any given time from the accounts settings without any catch. I once had to visit a specialist bookshop for, wait weeks for delivery, then go pick them up. I can actually now search fro a half remembered quote to use in papers I am writing. On the leisure side I can search for books without getting a crick in my neck looking at high shelves, and carry my whole library with me on holiday. I can read all day without the pain in my thumb from years of holding books open. I can search and find new books from favourite authors and download them without worrying of buying them separately. I love Perlego..

I love this app! As a geeky reader, I used to buy tons of books until I barely had enough space to keep them, and I also spent quite a lot of money. I was sooo happy to find Perlego. They have really good titles and authors that I love! 💜 It has been quite helpful because sometimes I bought books that I didn't end up liking the content of, but with this app, I can have a look through them without having to make the decision to buy. Everything they have is accessible to everyone with your monthly subscription -no additional costs! and they keep adding books every week, which is fascinating. I can even download up books from the app and read them offline, which is super handy, especially when traveling or in areas with poor wifi. 100% recommend it! 😍
