Fixes to make app useful for visually impaired users

This app is not very accessible for visually impaired users who require using Apple’s VoiceOver function. Please make the necessary changes to allow us access to all the apps functions and tools. I love reading and very much enjoy this app but it needs to be a lot more visually impaired friendly. Please take my request into consideration because I'm positive I cannot be the only user with these issues and concerns. And in an attempt to brive you in to making the necessary adjustments for us, I provide the assurance that you will gain many if not hundreds more users with this issue being fixed and this app being at the visually impaired community's reach. I know I've recommended it to many of my acquaintances and friends and would be more than glad to keep spreading the word to other fellow reading enthusiasts. Thank you for taking the time to read this very long complaint/request. Hope to see changes soon and thank you for caring and creating a great platform for readers and writers alike.

Bugs. Bugs. Bugs.

Hi, I’ve contacted support before but the issue was never really fixed. At least, on my end. Reviews don’t show up that I’ve written. Anyone else can see my reviews but i myself can’t. That’s a bug that needs fixing. My “Library” deletes itself. The books I click on take forever to load. Not to mention you have to click on the book to read the whole summary. I definitely think this app has major potential. But......Also, what is the point of badges? That’s a useless thing that takes over space that’s not needed. I have never seen a profile with badges anyway. I wish there would be a trending page for each category. It’s really hard to find new books for one category like fantasy when there is like 20 options in “popular”. It needs more rotation. New showcases of stories I’ve had to delete the app five times and re-download it because it shows a blank page. I am a avid reader on here and I truly appreciate that it’s free of charge but the bugs really need to be fixed or no one will want to use the app. Especially if they can’t use it even if they wanted too.

Fix your algorithms!!!

I love this app. I really do. I love it so much that I’ve read just about every single story on the popular and new pages. However, when I search for new books by genre, the same list of books pop up.

Now I read a lot. I can finish a 500 page book in a day. That being said, I am searching for something new to read everyday, if not multiple times a day. I’m losing hope that there is even anything new on the site for me to even read. Please refresh your algorithms so that I can see new stories and new things.

Not being able to see the page count of each story on the app before I click into it, is frustrating. Something with 30 chapters that’s complete can be misleading. Most of the time, those books average about two hundred to three hundred pages, or even one hundred. I’d like to be able to see how many pages are in the book before so that I don’t accidentally cause the app to crash like it has so many times before.
