Ratings and Reviews
I was wrestled unto reviwing this app after trying it for a few searches, so I have not sampled all it can do. The free version has several sorces to search for free ebooks, but it still does a good in overall performance. However, one is limited to searching one website at a time. Also, if you are into browsing, some sites will not let you use more than category and if you want to eliminate books not in English you will have to wade through ALL the books on that site in no particular order.
I don't write many reviews but this app deserves some input. I didn't really know what to think when I first saw this app because I have run across countless other free eBook search apps that were ultimately pretty lame. This app, however, has been very useful and allows access to tons of eBooks from a large number of reputable resources. I have really enjoyed having it and would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy way to find great new/old ebooks from across the web.
Worthless - and 99-cent upgrade even sworde
Now, all data on free and otherwise e-bools is free to anyone opening a web browser (though Google was caught Sept 2017 slashing any site left of Atilla the Hun) bur bot searches are easy to construct to a build this kind of database.
So WHERE ARE THE BOOKS?
Could be the writers CHARGE and Proj. Gutenberg doesn't spend cash enriching app writers.
It MIGHT be the "family friendly" policy of listing ONLY books acceptable to the most closed-minded who don't think 12-year olds are ready for 1984.
This trash doesn't even correctly alphabetize results and attempts to list Pacific Rim demi-pictograph fonts under Roman letter sorts. And a simple sort for books with titles or authors with a SPECIFIC name will toss you a randomized list of books that somewhere use one of the letters in a very specific name/title somewhere in in-book catalog data - which means almost every book on the list.
Even the one publishing house providing its own list has its data thoroughly disorganized. DUMP THIS DOG and question Apple's allegedly strict quality standards.
