What's New in Version 2.8.1
Fixed a crash when app opens.
The app has a new icon.
The text selection menu’s new look is also accessible to visually impaired users.
Changes you make to display options are easier to see.
"Please wait while the app upgrades your downloaded books. This may take some time." Indeed it does, more than 10 minutes. This might be acceptable the first time around (though is a company like google so lame as to not provide a progress bar?), but is totally unacceptable when it happens *every time you open the app*! I mean really! I paid a lot of money for some of these e-books! You can do better than that! --> All that written 3 years ago. It's *still like this*! Honestly I will buy no more e-books from Google. LAME, LAME, LAME!
Ended up ordering hard copy
I d/l from App Store. Was pretty intuitive. Loaded onto my three year old phone with little problems but never could install open on tablet. Keep getting error message timed out. After trying five times as well as cold reboot it was time to move on.. Now how do I get my money back from Google for what I paid for the book.
Upload problem fixed!
Back to being awesome!
