Need to fix many glitches
This app has said “this resource has been downloaded to another device” for every single book I have checked out. You can not have this app on multiple devices or it dose not work at all. I do like the selection of books but you can’t read them because of this glitch. This app will be my favorite app to go to for all my books if you can fix these glitches.
So, the app usually is fine but ever since the newest update it gotten glitchy. First off, when I tried to read a certain book on my iPad it would crash even when I tried downloading it. Also, I forgot I still had it downloaded when I tried reinstalling and now I can’t get into the book due to the fact it is, “on another device.”
I’m a fifth grader and this app is so good for reading and listening! There is one problem but not a big one,sometimes when you are listening to a book it will stop and it won’t keep going until you get into the app and press play but it will usually start from a little more behind then you were. Bye!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
