Customer Reviews

Nice concept

I really like the concept of this app. Even though it doesn't have a big selection, it's very useful. I hope that they take this further. Something I appreciate is that it doesn't have any ads, and you can download the books for free. If they decide to charge something in order to obtain a bigger selection, I feel that would be a good idea. However, I hope they always keep this app ad free; and if ever it becomes popular, that they don't get greedy and start asking a lot money in order to get rid of the ads.
