I am not a fake reviewer or someone connected to this app. I own an iPad Pro and and an iPad mini. I wanted to find a good quality app to read classic books. I thought that so many classic books are free that there has to be an app that provides this content. I am pleased to say that this app seems to be it. I now have a huge library of both audio and written books. The 1.00 is nothing compared to what your getting. I downloaded a free app that claimed to offer the same thing and it crashed. It is better to pay and support the makers of this app. I rather pay a bit of money for a great stable app than one that is cheap and buggy. If your on the fence about this all I have to say is that what you see is what you get. The makers of this app are the real deal and while it is not perfect it is the best I found so far.

Same app as Free Books Pro


There is nothing wrong with this app. Well, it did give me a registration screen and then it would not process the information. I downloaded this because the one I downloaded earlier (the non HD version) would not open any books. It just kept rendering them for hours.

Anyway, this App works fine but I had also bought the Free Books Pro App (no ads version) and after downloading this Classicly HD App one, it turns out to be the exact same interface, choices and even asks for my Classicly login. I guess they took over Classicly. So I don't need to pay for both apps. I am asking for a refund todaybecause Free Books has the added advantage of linking to Dropbox.

Could have been a perfect 5 stars.


Obviously made by people who love books. It shows. Much appreciated.

Couldn't give a full 5 stars only because the e-reader itself is hard to deal with: Giant spaces between paragraphs, giant margins, giant page "flips," a font that's rough on the eyes. No way to correct. All of which makes the app practically unusable, I'll be honest, hence the 3 (not even 4) stars.

Right now the app is really just a good reference collection. It's too bad.
