Customer Reviews

Free books by digital press

Works great. Lots of books. Really fun to find old books you never heard of and read them because that gives you an insight into history you can't get in a history book published in modern times versus when you read a book that was written and published in like 1896! Really like the addition of some newer books too. The apple app works better that the droid--but my droid tablet is old so that could have been the problem. It just didn't download whole pages--aggravating at the climax of a story! But the apple app is smooth.

4 Stars

For the price of $0, this app is great. A lot of great books on here. I've had some trouble with ads, but they're pretty easy to ignore. Turning off WiFi and turning on Airplane Mode will get rid of them, and you can still read any books that you downloaded. I would suggest getting more books, especially those pre-1923, and those that are in the public domain. I would also suggest putting the fact that you don't have modern books in the app description. Overall, great app for the cost of nothing!

Could use lots of improvement, but it's free!!

Great intentions were put forth for the good of the book lovers. However, much could be done to make this app valuable. I'll be willing to pay for the app and a few dollars for each book if improvements are made. The ability to search a text is one of the major reason I like reading digitally. The fact that I can not even browse a chapter due to the absence of table of contents is the reason I peruse books in other apps.
