I really love this app, and I would have given 5 stars, but the app has already removed books from my account twice, and when I download them again, I am put back to the beginning of the book. There is no option to go to a particular page, which is frustrating and forces me to go one page at a time to get back to where I left off. Please fix with next update.


Pretty Good but…

I like this app, it is really good but I don’t know if it is my phone or the app, but nothing is loading in on it. I open the app because my dad has my real books, and nothing is loading in. I don’t know if it is the app or my phone but I hope it gets fixed. Other than that, this app is really good!

Amazing App! (But formatting flaw on iPhone XS Max)

I came across this app and access to it through First Book Marketplace. It has been an amazing tool for not only myself but also my students. Being able to provide them with free access to a variety of e-books that they can read on the go has definitely changed my students interest in reading for the better. However, there is a formatting issue with the taxed on the iPhone XS Max. The top line of each page gets cut out because of the notch! I really hope this formatting issue is fixed soon!
