Customer Reviews

Great service, iffy update

I'm new to the unlimited subscription service and love it. Definitely a better selection than I've found on others and I love being able to view only unlimited books rather than ones to purchase being mixed in too. The latest update brought the personalized book list feature which I love because I feel the need to organize everything. However, it took away the ratings on of the most important features of the entire service!!! What gives, Oyster?! Please fix it!

Incredible app

This is the best app for ebook reading. Amazing. The app gets better with every update. Thank You for creating a wonderful ebook reading experience!

P.S. Are the book ratings gone? I don't see them anymore.

Please don't support these people. Subscribe to kindle unlimited instead.

This developer doesn't want blind people to have access to books. Please don't support them with your money. Amazon offers a service like this and they believe accessibility is important, let's support them. The Kindle app works fine and the Kindle unlimited subscription is $10 a month for unlimited reading. I have had several conversations with these people trying to get them to make this app blind accessible. They are not interested. It frustrates me that they won't even make a few simple changes that could open the world of reading up to the blind and others with reading disability's. Apple has built a screenreader into all of its products. All I'm asking this developer to do is make this app compatible with that service.
