You may be tempted by this to quickly access some difficult to acquire book, like I was first.
The two issues I have had are:
- it crashes frequently after highlighting text and this is only briefly resolved by a hard reset.
- because it blends text you can't accurately see which page a quote comes from to reference it. Is it page 167 or 168? It's impossible to tell.
Needs an update now.
I have been user of Google Play Books for years now and have liked it, read books all these years on my iOS devices. Now with iOS9, i can not turn pages of books anymore. This is because iOS takes me to multi screen window with a swipe. This app needs to be updated now to be compatible with iOS 9.
All my books every where I go and on every device! What's not to love about that?
