App Reviews

  • I use it everyday.

    By Cookcrazy
    I am only giving the app 3 stars because although it has great content, there are a couple of small things that if they fixed as far as function it would be nearly perfect. First, they need a “report a problem” option for each book. I mostly use the audio option and many, many times have had problems with chapters being out of order or completely missing. Also, sound will go missing in sections. The worst is when the audio is stuck at double speed making it nearly impossible to understand what the reader is saying. If I could report the problem for the specific book I’m listening to for the app, it would be helpful to all that are using the app. Secondly, the search option in the app is dismally inadequate. I would love to be able to search the complete plus audio library for the specific genres I’m looking for. Not an option. I have to weed through dozens of titles to find one I haven’t heard or am interested in. I do love the service, and like I said, I use it everyday. With these two minor fixes, it would be 5 star for sure.
  • Love DB+, app could use some work

    By Jacione
    Let me start by saying this is so much better than the Netflix sub I was thinking about buying. Having such a huge library of gospel knowledge to read or listen to is awesome, and I would recommend this app as well as the DB+ subscription to anyone. That said, this is a review of the app, not the service it connects to. Overall it’s not bad, but a few things could be streamlined. Specifically, I’ve noticed that the “back” buttons move around a lot: if you are in one of the sections within the discover tab, and you open a book, the book has to be closed from the top right, but then the category has to be closed from the top left. Also, it would be nice if touching the tab you’re already in took you back to the beginning of that tab. Lastly, I would love to see a “now playing” more easily accessible. Like I said, none of this would stop me from recommending the app to anyone, but there are just a few things that could make using the app feel more natural. Keep up the great work!
  • What I Like and Don’t Like...

    By forever_4
    I like access to so many book options and the ability to change the background and text colors. (I prefer a black background with white text because it’s not so bright while reading.) I don’t like the number of typos/grammatical errors I have found in the short time I’ve been using the app. Not sure if these errors are in the printed versions, but they take away from the story and reduce credibility. It might be helpful to DB if the reader could somehow highlight and submit errors for correction as they are found. Otherwise, I’m not sure how DB would know where they are or that they exist. I don’t like how the search option seems incomplete. When I search for an author, I may see a few books by that author, but not all. Then the list starts showing me books by other people. If there were an option in the search like “must contain” or “only this author” it might help get a better result. This would be good for the website as well. The bookmark feature is a bit clunky. I set a bookmark at the beginning of each chapter when I reach it in case I have to stop reading for a bit. So, I remove the old and create the new. When I create the new there is a delay because it has a box for typing text (I guess for naming my bookmarks). It would be nice if I could just add a quick bookmark and move on. Maybe hold my finger on a word for 3 seconds and a bookmark option pops up that I click. Then it knows exactly where I left off.
  • Unclear Interface, Functionality Lacks

    By Ann's Husband, Glen
    I want to like this app. I don't like posting negative reviews. But what other way can we give input? Deseret Book is unresponsive to customer feedback. The interface is cluttered, lacks logic and clarity. Unable to move books around to arrange the order of books. Interface alludes to ability to favorite books on your shelf, but unable to do it—or maybe I am just a ditz. Unable to completely delete a book; it stays on the interface in the 'cloud,’ (what if you downloaded a book you end up not liking?) Including audio books in the same app without the ability to separate them to another list adds further clutter and vagueness. Suggest maybe have a separate app for audio books. Suggest if Deseret is going to do a book app, just do it right. Do some looking at AppleBooks app to see how they succeeded in making a beautiful, sensible interface, and then at least emulate it. App needs re-doing. If unable to make this app good, then suggest make all of Deseret's ebooks available on AppleBooks.
  • Great app with minor flaws

    By DarthRicktor
    Overall I really like this app, it makes it easy to keep my large library of gospel-related books always on hand and easily accessible. The selection of available books is great and reasonably priced. My only complaint is that most of the books I have read (mostly from my iPhone or IPad) contain grammatical errors, miss-spellings and very poor hyphenation. It’s like an editor never looked at the e-editions. While this is annoying, it’s not the fault of the app rather with the publisher of the e-books. The app lets one save several study sessions so you can switch between different books. You can highlight text passages easily, look up word definitions, and create bookmarks easily. I also like how each book cover is nicely displayed on the home page. I highly recommend this app,
  • Content is good; app delivery clunky

    By EllJayPea
    This gets two stars instead of just one because the content is good, of course. The app itself leaves much to be desired. I have to re-sign in every two or three days, with no apparent reason why. This is undesirable because it always happens when I’m driving, and just want the audio portions to play without illegal maneuvers (texting and driving.) Then after signing in, have to go through all the splash welcome screens again, as though it’s my first time using the app. Suggestion: implement fingerprint access. Browsing content is difficult - there are no prices on any new content I may want to purchase. The rest of the flow of the app is a little clunky, with it being unclear how to access all the different types of titles (audio vs ebook, for example), vs My Library.
  • Awesome app! Some improvement is needed for Bluetooth headphones

    By I'll get there this time
    I love the book selection and their availability in audiobooks. Thank you so much! The biggest improvement I would suggest is aligning the app’s functions with Bluetooth headphone controls. I use an LG Bluetooth headset, and it works well with other audiobook apps. But with this, instead of skipping forward or backward 30 seconds when I hit the fast forward or rewind buttons, it skips to the next or the previous chapter. I end up having to use the controls on my phone, which partially defeats the purpose is the headphones and makes the app much less usable while I’m driving. That’s when I chose to listen to something else.
  • Love the program

    By Hollope
    I love the program, the idea of making good wholesome material available to others is wonderful! As an older person with problems remembering how to get from point A to point B it is difficult. To figure out how to open the book I am reading and find my place has proven to be a challenge needing assistance from the help section. I would like the program more if it had a section for beginners to read without any extras, having help easy to reach if there are any questions. Some people are not computer smart, but do enjoy reading and would like to be able to have it be easier and not be frustrating and so easy to loose your place.
  • Mostly good

    By WVS52
    The app plays your selections well. It automatically downloads the next chapter or segment to avoid pauses. It has an option to download the entire book so you can continue even without WiFi without using cell data. I’m frustrated that it only shows some of the available titles in the app. To see them all you must log into Deseret book webpage, while you are logged in you have the option to put books into bookshelf an the when you open the app it shows up in your library (usually). The other frustration is if you want to listen to an audio book again there is no way to reset all the chapters to the beginning.
  • LOVE it!!!

    By heythatguythere
    I have had absolutely none of the problems with this app that the other reviewers have written about. I find it to be extremely user friendly. That said, not only am I breezing through all the books I've been wanting to read, but my house work is getting done as I listen :-). My family and I now listen to talks on audio by John Bytheway and others when we're in the car and we are all being enriched and uplifted by this spectacular library. "Seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith". Thank you DB!!!
