Great when it works

I love the app and what it is intended for, but I have had lots of issues with it not working correctly. I am only allowed to check out six books, and in the parent letter it said 10 could be downloaded. I also get an error message when I try to download some titles. The app will also kick me out in the middle of reading. I want it to work so badly because it is such an awesome resource.

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!

Open Ebooks on the iPhone X

On the iPhone X, the app Open Ebooks is great. However, one problem that I witness every time I try to read on the app is, the app cuts off some of the top text because of the notch on the iPhone X. The text on top of the page is unreadable because of this problem. Hopefully you can change this so I, along with the many other “Book Lovers” can get back to reading as soon as possible. Thanks.
