    Nothing was explained when I purchased the book, it almost looked like only available for Androids. Finally googled something to find out what to do to get the whole book, not just the preview.

    Minus a few glitches that happens every so often: 1when I remove a downloaded book and the app doesn't open until I uninstall and redownlaod the app (rarely) 2. Doesn't handle embedded footnotes well. (75% had issues) It works great for reading books on the go. Would like to be able to buy books from the app but I guess that's a limitation of running on an iPhone instead of a google phone.
  • Not good for text books.

    After purchasing two text books on Google Play Books for the current semester, I’ve come to realize that this is not a good app for students. There are good things: the search is powerful, as one would expect from a Google product, and the navigation is easy. Unfortunately, problems make the app unusable. The syncing of those highlights from the web version shifted by a word or two. The highlighting process is slow and resets the view to the top of the page after each highlight. But most frustratingly, the app regularly freezes and shuts down when navigating notes and highlights. This particularly frustrating when attempting to reference notes that have already been taken. This is a well-reviewed app, and I’m sure it’s great for casual reading, but if you would like to have your textbooks on your iPad, don’t rely on it. You’ll only be left angry and wanting to throw your iPad out the window.
  • I use this app instead of iBooks

    App doesn’t save my place where I left off in the book when I exited out of the book. The highlighting feature works like crap and they don’t even have yellow highlighting. Amazon Kindle app is much better.
