App Reviews

  • Great when it works

    By LBVT89
    I love the app and what it is intended for, but I have had lots of issues with it not working correctly. I am only allowed to check out six books, and in the parent letter it said 10 could be downloaded. I also get an error message when I try to download some titles. The app will also kick me out in the middle of reading. I want it to work so badly because it is such an awesome resource.
  • Glitchy

    By Trojanact
    This app is amazing when it works. On the iPhone X, this version will not allow me to read it in landscape mode, not will it allow me to zoom in. When that gets fixed I will readjust rating to 5 stars.

  • Stuck at EULA on iPhone X

    By rbodgers
    When I launch the app, I’m presented with the End User License Agreement. But there doesn’t appear to be a way to accept the agreement, or otherwise move on.
  • Worthless

    By Adowa2
    You can't get every book in the world!
  • I LOVE to read EULAs... (not)

    By kat10claire
    It’s only the EULA screen, no way to get away from it. This used to be a great app, but they really need to do some adjusting.
