Stability and performance enhancements
What is Google playing at?
This app doesn't appear to be ready for release. Waiting a minute or more for each image to load is rubbish. Unfortunately certain books are only available in this format so if you want the book you to use it. Come on Google! If you're releasing books, make them readable.
The app keeps turning itself off, I have to click on the icon to resume reading. Another limitation is that the font size too small, if drag the page bigger, it is very difficult to read the book. Also when font size is bigger I am unable to turn the page until I reduce the font back to the original size.
So basic as to be impractical for reference texts
The ability to highlight text, take notes or mark relevant sections is near non existent, or so clumsy as to be unusable. If Google won't let you open a book in another program then they could at least provide some easily accessible tools for marking up text. Google Play Books could be so much more.
