Ratings and Reviews

Doesn't work


I've tried using this app multiple times and every time it says it's unable to establish a connection even with wifi or 4g. Useless.

Doesn't work


The app was unable to recognize a connection. I can make an account. I just can't subscribe to anything. Lame.

Great concept, Meh execution

The concept of this app is stellar. I'm already a huge reader, but $5/month for two books is too good a deal to pass up. The fact that you don't get to choose the titles is actually appealing to me. It's a chance for me to force my reading into new directions I normally wouldn't take myself. Delivery of small quantities of reading in doses is also fun and a great use of times I'm just waiting around (doctor's office, in line at the post office) which I'd probably otherwise use playing a mindless game.

I think that, over time, the app will get better. Right now, the bugs annoy me. Often, when I go to reopen the app to continue reading, I find an error message that does not go away unless I uninstall the app and reinstall it. Then, the app doesn't keep my place in the reading, but opens to the very end of the last installment and I have to go hunt for the page I left off on.

Since ease of use isn't huge for this app right now, I probably won't stick with it, but may check back in when they've worked things out a bit more.
