  • Highlighting is buggy beyond belief!

    By abracadabracandelabra
    The highlights feature is poorly designed and totally buggy. You have to select a single word, and then use selection bars to extend the selection. The highlight menu often gets in the way of the area you want to select into. You can’t extend selection across column or page boundaries. Once you have the selection you want, it often takes several presses on the color to get it to highlight. Then, there’s a 50/50 chance that the highlight gets saved correctly. If you rotate the page or leave the app, the highlight may be over a totally different piece of text, or it may no have been saved at all. Then, apparently, there is no way to retrieve the highlights. You can get a document with links to them, but not the highlighted text itself. Otherwise it’s ok. So, fine for bubblegum reading. Avoid if at all possible for serious reading.
  • Easy app?

    By thepuljo
    Load of crap so far. Tried to open in iPad and iPhone. Down load it many times now. Can not open it? Come Google. Get it together and sort this mess out. You say it is easy to use. Fill like it is useless to keep trying. I can buy my books easy but can not get your app to work?
  • This app is terrible

    By JosephKingstonUS
    Play Books doesn't work on my iPad Pro. I uninstalled the app then installed it again, but still it didn't work. Fix the app, please!
  • How do I purchase books here?

    By Ausony7
    I don’t see any price tag or option to buy. Only option available is SAMPLE download. How do I buy books here?
  • Full version

    By the droid you were looking for
    I downloaded a sample, read it, and then decided that I wanted to purchase the full version but there was no option to do so.
  • Terrible

    By drummerbronx
    I highlighted information I needed to share at a meeting.It was all gone.This is supposed to be Google. Terrible,Terrible,Terrible. Terrible,Terrible instead of 5 Stars . I would not recommend to anyone. 8/13/18 still the worst. All those 5 stars are probably people working for google or relatives. Look at (see all ) You find other people who do not like the update.
  • Deleting content

    By ronaldorlemes
    The catalog is great and the fact that they offer audiobooks is also great but the app has two major problems (for a while now): I lost the count on the Number of times I have made all my purchases available off-line and then when I switched to my other account the app simply DELETES ALL MY CONTENT!!! And the second issue is that on lower speed internet connections the app simply won’t download content. It keeps informing the same error that it wasn’t possible to download the files. Sometimes I have to try for hours to download some of my purchases.
  • I guess it works because you can read books

    By pbbbbbbbbbbt!
    Other than that, forget it. Forget sorting your books, looking up word definitions or doing searches for words outside of the app. The search function used to work until Google ‘fixed’ it in an update. Now the search function just loads your web browser to the Google home page. Thanks Google! The bookmarks function is clunky at best. Translation rarely works as expected. Pages often get cut off at random, or the app sticks on a page and has to be rebooted. Google really should take a page from the Kindle app, which has far and away superior functionality on all of these fronts. I only use this app to read the books my partner has downloaded to it, otherwise I avoid it because it’s seriously frustrating.
  • Great app so far...

    By tulip_123
    I love to read when I have time and this app has proven in my opinion to be great. I have purchased various books and novels without having trouble with the download, I even can download them anytime on my cellphone without any issues. Keep up with the excellent job!!!

    GOOGLE I expected better from you. This is the worst app I’ve ever seen. It crashes on starts, it bugs in the middle, it destroys everything on my iPad. Cmon google step it up!!
