Amended review - now working

I downloaded this app a few months back seemed to have signed up and in ok. However when I click on profile it just shows as ‘null’ I can see the books to pick from but the only thing I can get are extracts. I’ve even tried creating a private book group and still no luck. It’s very frustrating hence the 1 star. It’s also very disappointing as this has lots of potential and I know it does work for lots of people so I am assuming it’s something to do with the iPhone version. I think I will probably end up deleting the app soon as there is no point in having an app that doesn’t work it only serves to tease me. Edited to add I tried deleting the app and reinstalling and this seems to have worked so I have increased my star rating to 4 * and have now successfully downloaded some books. So anyone having problems it’s worth a try.

Free access to great book

This is a great app that gives access to a wide variety of books, some even before they hit the bookshops. I have gone down a star because I think there is some room for improvement. Two things that I’d really like to see: 1. Syncing across different devices, 2. The ability to delete books from my bookshelf when I have read them. With those to additions this app would be amazing.

Type size

Would it be possible to be able to increase the print size on Pigeonhole’s app. I know I have the choice of three and also a choice of typefaces but I am struggling with the largest available Thank you

These lads are brilliant. Nothing too much trouble. My eyes are old on a par with rest of me and they very kindly increased the available font size for me twice. 5 well deserved stars and a big thank you.
UPDATE .....
I am wondering how I can listen to these books. I have been told I tap on the musical note and audio will appear, but when I do this there is no option for audio. In fact Audio is not mentioned, just the banner appears giving options in font size. I'm reading 'The Foundling' and I know from others that audio should be an option. I am reading on the Pigeonhole app for I pad. Thank you.
