New update is awful

For whatever reason, the update for this app caused it to become far worse. There is now a marked decrease in book summaries, absolutely no Faulkner at all and no notes on Lord of the Flies, for example. There is no search feature and the presentation before the update was much better.

Useful but could be more user friendly

It has the standard Literary novels that most students need to read sometime throughout their education. It is basic but has good content when describing the chapters and summaries. It would be nice if the reader at the bottom would also be an audio feature, not just visual. So while the words are being scanned at the bottom a voice would be projecting out what is being read.

Old App is Better

This app is a waste of 99 cents. It is practically just a shortcut to the mobile site. Plus, it's not ad free unless you pay another dollar.
This app lacks many of the features the old app offered such as a favorites list for easy access to a specific book. The Spritz It feature is interestingly helpfully but isn't worth the other flaws. I generally find this app unhelpful.
