Ratings and Reviews
Is it me...?
This is a beautiful app, it really is. It's well formatted. The description led me to believe that the app would find literary events near me. Well, it will... If "near me" is New York and ONLY New York. I tried everything, even entering a city. It seems that within the universe of this app, no city outside of New York exists! The city guides look promising, and I love the concept, but I'm on the west coast. Truly looking forward to an update.
Get Your Culture On!
An easy way to find local author events, book signings, open reading night spots, etc.
Bookstores: please use this app!
Does not function properly on the iPad. No iPhone to try it on, either. I do love this concept, though!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
