  • Needs serious help!!!!

    By Supremema83
    Like the app but needs some serious help when purchasing ebooks and audiobooks due that I have iPhone and when I want to purchase any it makes it difficult 😞 to do so with Apple Pay/ wallet (???) better off clearing out for into on this app before erasing it.
  • No purchase option

  • Pathetic

    Can’t even edit name in my own library. Can edit my pdf .. this app is getting more worse than better. Need to move away from this app.
  • Updated review

    By Note-maker
    My previous review was very negative. I thought that if you tapped on a note too close to an edge or top or bottom of a page, it would turn the page, (or insert a bookmark) and while that’s true, I just learned that you can type in the middle of a sentence to see the note.
  • My second book app I needed (UPDATE)

    By Review guy 467
    I use this & Apple Books. I also tested kindle I could mention the problems with it. But I most likely will be repeating what most have said before. What I will say google books is easy to navigate so far I find the same books here as on Apple Books. Kindle is missing some books. Google books has a far better feature for comics then Amazon’s comixology. Which I’ll warn at this point that app as gone done hill. Google as audio books it’s not like audible. It’s good has simple features that are useful. So if you need a second book app I say give this a try. Cause is just one app you need vs having total of 4 kindle, comixology, audible, & goodreads (👈which this app does reviews & recommendations, overall this app covers books in kindle more. Not very useful.) Last when you add your books the recommendations it’s make is good. UPDATE: I just noticed something the average difference between (some of the books) the number Book pages between Apple Books and Google Books is about 60 pages. While the average difference between the number of book pages between Apple Books and Kindle is about 40-46 pages. If I had to say, which one of the three does the best job on book recommendations I say Google play books, Kindle, & Apple Books. (Forgot to add this:Google play books has a thing to where you go on the website and you can bundle package some books or all the books in a series in one purchase.If it’s a continuing series you can purchase a so call subscription to where you can get a new book each time a new one comes out. Kindle/Amazon has a bundle feature, but it’s only for three books.Apple Books doesn’t have any of those things the other two have.)
  • Poor customer service/returns policy

    By One_Angry_Bird
    I was looking for a new digital comic reader now that Amazon has gutted ComiXology, but am really disappointed with Google Play’s cookie cutter refunds process and policy. With my very first purchase, I accidentally bought the wrong volume and immediately reported it to request a refund, but my request was denied. Not a great first impression. Amazon may be messed up, but at least their ebook return policy for accidental purchases actually works.
  • Always goes to page 1 after switching back from another app

    By Hanzhaq
    Always goes to page 1 after switching back from another app. Then I need to manually go to the page I was reading
  • Bad for wifi-only devices

    By Atem925
    Downloads invariably fail the first time and usually fail on the second attempt too. Good for reading when it does download the books but bad for devices that can’t always be connected to the internet.
  • Feature Request

    By Endrinar
    I absolutely love this app. I read all my books on here. **Request**: please make it possible to right margin notes on here with the Apple Pencil (or any other stylus). We already have the ability to type notes and highlight. I just want to be able to write the note with the stylus.
  • Horrible on highlighting

    By createme7682
    I use this app all the time and I have noticed that there’s many times the app decides it doesn’t want to keep certain highlights in my notes! Ot just simply deletes them as soon as I create them! This is getting annoying! Especially when I have created notes and they just disappear, i mine as well use another app just for note keeping! What happens when you put a lot of thought into your note and it just deletes itself? The devs need to fix this! Are there any other apps that read google books I can use!
