Ratings and Reviews
Their books are sometimes frustrating to order. You pick a book for your cart, and when you go to pay the cart is empty. So you have to repeat sometimes 3-4 times before you can get the book. Also, they may have the same book as BookBub at the same price. But then they add taxes. A few cents here and there adds up. Sometimes I get so frustrated trying to order that I just go to BookBub and save a few cents with no order frustration.
Also, they do not display the time like BookBub does. So you have to back out of the application to check the time. Same thing to check battery charge. Annoying.
I do like seeing how much I’ve read and seeing my ranking compared to others. That’s why I use BookShout. It compensates for some of the annoyance.
Good app a few glitches though
I like that it sends you a reminder to read and an email that tells you how much you read the day before but it is very twitchy when flipping the pages. It seems to not count a page if it appears you’re reading faster than it thinks you should be able to read. I actually read faster than it says and have ha to go back a page or two to get it counted. Also, maybe not an email everyday with totals. I like to read but I don’t want to be reminded each morning that life happens. Also, while book. Shout bucks are great there are so any books you can’t use then on which kind of negates earning them.
Not only are the books here flawlessly presented and your bookshelves easy to organize, there is a speed reading function that is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, and I’ve tried them all. Not only was I able to increase my reading speed, my retention went through the roof and the most relevant information of the book stayed with me long after the book was finished. It was also hard to miss the main points of the book with this feature. There are other goodies in this app that help keep the reader on track. This is the app I’ll most likely use for all my future non-fiction reading. Love it, stunned by it, appreciative of its development.
