Customer Reviews


I tried loads of apps and all the books cost money. Then I download this one thinking that the title is lying, and really ITS THE BEST BOOK APP I've tried. A range of different books from Shakespeare's to youngsters. When you download the books it doesn't take that long . Really easy to find the books you've downloaded and the ones you haven't. Also you can change the colour of the pages black or white. Once again THIS IS THE BEST BOOK APP and everyone should try it.

One major issue... Not quite 'ready' yet

This has potential to be a very good App... BUT there is no Contents List to any book I've downloaded so far! I love the polished UI and we do have a Location Bar at the bottom which enables you to jump to any page number. But where am I jumping to? It's a shot in the dark, since there's no Index. I appreciate Contents have to be 'put in by hand' so charge a small fee for this work and then re-launch the App when it's ready!

Great ap!

Just a fabulous number of free books to read, mainly older and classics. Even some I read as a child and are no longer in print. Just as easy to use as any of the others. There are occasional ads, but it's not overwhelming. Definitely recommend.
