Ratings and Reviews
I’m a new ebook reader and using IOS 15.5. The app does not have any options for font size, font style, or even night mode. I like how this is accessible and easy to navigate. I searched the web on how to enlarge the font however, the instructions they stated are for below IOS 15, I’ve read on some apple discussion forums that the previous update provide font size editing, I hope you can bring back that update! and add more customization. It will be really helpful for us who have bad eyesight and for us to enjoy ebook more!! Thank you!
Aesthetics of A Bookshelf, Gone
I loved the older version of the app wherein I can admire my bookshelf, cover titles on display against a virtual, wooden shelf. Why would you take away such a wonderful feature? Now this looks impersonal, and to be honest, boring. I haven’t used the app for ages. And don’t let me start on the “Reading Now” section that was ALL TOO CONFUSING. Why was the More To Explore under this section, anyways? I think it should be under Search, instead of cluttering the books we’re currently reading. Sheesh. Everything is in disarray.
I hope you can revisit this app and add a little bit of flexibility wherein you can personalize your bookshelf, the tabs, maybe change the background or what. Or better yet, just give us back the old, wooden bookshelf.
An excellent app for reading ebooks
If you have Apple Books and want to read on your phone, this is the best app by far to read ebooks. There are great options like the highlighting of texts and quotes, bookmarking pages, and you have a record of what you’ve marked inside the book. However, I have one tiny suggestion on improving the app; and that is adding more colors to the highlight option. As of now, there are only colors yellow, green, blue, pink, and purple. It would be even better if you added red, orange, and other colors in the spectrum. Thank you!
