What's New in Version 4.3
• Download an entire collection - gives customers the ability to download an entire collection with the tap of a button, making it easier for readers to download in bulk and load their favorite books on a new iOS device
• Performance and stability improvements
This app has saved me hundreds of pounds and a lot of time that would of been spent waiting for books to be delivered.
One of the best features is the ability to download samples before you buy. One thing I must say though is that for whatever reason some of the samples are only a few pages which is stupid as I find myself only buying books that have a large enough sample for me to get gripped on the story. Who ever is responsible needs to realise they are losing sales because of it.
Long time kindle reader
I've been using this app since the beginning. Through it's many evolutions.
What I really like is the fact that you can have access to your library via laptop, iPad, kindle, iPhone - which makes it easy to keep entertained where ever you are going.
The books are easy (some might say, a little too easy) to download, which means that if you like to devour books like I do, you'll develop a serious problem in no time at all!
Love this app
I really love this app. Not only can I sell my own books more cheaply than paperbacks, thus increasing sales potential, and have additional pleasure of reading my own books on it but, also, I buy many, many books by other authors and it saves me so much money. The only thing I am concerned about is what will happen over time, if I buy new iPads. Will my library collection suddenly disappear it I buy more than six, over time? I do hope not. I will be most upset.
