Absolutely fantastic with one bug

I’ve been using this app on on iPad for the past year and it is amazing.

Also, the recent design change is something that I’m liking very much across all google applications.

There is still this one bug that I wish they could work on- when I try to highlight something and it spans across to the other page, I can’t seem to drag the same highlight over and I need to make 2 different highlights. I wish google worked on this just like kindle has the feature to do it.

Offline usage & Audio problems Google playbook for iPhone

Even after downloading the "Birds of Indian Subcontinent" (Google Play book for iPhone) the book cannot be used offline, (this app requires data on continuously as per my experience). The information about birds is not displayed only Bionomial names and images are seen. Recently there was an update (for iPhone) for Audio improvements, but audio playback problem is still exist I cannot playback audio.

Bug report + No support

On iOS I use speak screen feature to read almost every book. But if I invoke Speak screen by using 2 finger swipe on google okay books app, the audio readout starts, but the app hangs. So I have no choice but exit

When I clicked on support button on App Store to report this issue, I was taken to google support site and as usual but there was a call/chat option which showed as closed. No alternate email address was given.

If you don’t want to support your buggy app, why publish it in the first place?
