Ratings and Reviews
Bard. Mobile is not what it used to be for me.
Earlier, I guess around before the update, I could go into my wishlist and view the next book in the series. No, I don’t know where the next book is, even with the “more info, “button. I will have to go online now, to find out where the next book in “the wheel of time, “is located after. “the dragon reborn. “ this is not very good, but the bard app is still working for me. if you would like to know my router, advisors name, it is Megan McCormick. She is in the Jefferson City Missouri branch of wool from the library.
Problem with the mobile app on phone
Hi, this is Jeanne. I’m trying to figure out why I’m having a hard time. Logging onto bard with my iPhone 14 Pro. I’ve never had this problem before. It’s telling me to sign up like I’m a new user. I am not a new user! Has anybody else had this problem? Please let me know why I can’t sign on to the bard app with my cell phone. That’s why I gave this a little reading. Because it’s not working correctly!
PS, I have tried both emails. And they both turned red! I’ve tried my iCloud one, and my Gmail one. I think I switched back to the Gmail. And it’s not working at all. Not even my password. So again this is the reason why I gave this a little reading. Until this is fixed, I’m not changing the rating at all!
I wonder why this works on my victor reader streams? But not on my iPhone. Please help. Sorry for the long response.
This app is amazing but
This app is literally my lifeline, and I don’t know what I would do without it. But, since this new update. My books haven’t been wanting to play. And sometimes when they do you want to play, it sounds like it’s all static he. I’m usually just able to press the sleep timer, to where I want it to go and it will work. But that doesn’t work anymore and I have to keep pressing play and pause for several minutes until it starts playing again.
