  • PDF books take a lot of storage when downloading on iPhone or iPad!

    By 852654ffF
    I have had an Android Samsung tablet for a few years now and been using google play books ever since I got the tablet. So I have a lot of books in my library that I accumulated over the years. Books that I bought from google store as ePub file formats and, ones I uploaded my self as PDFs. I personally became fond of the app for organization and style! So when I bought a new iPad and set it up I, was glad to see the google play books app on apple App Store so I immediately downloaded the app to retrieve my books, as I am not a fan of the iBooks app. Sorry for the irrelevant introduction; for me the app looks nice and familiar and it works just fine with no issues but, the reason I gave the app two stars is because I noticed that when I downloaded a pdf book that is only 38 Mb in size, it took 1.5 Gb of storage while ePub books didn’t take much. There probably is a conversion factor however, as far as I know that apple devices are able to read PDFs even though ePubs are the most popular nowadays! So if there is a conversion factor, why convert a pdf in the first place if an iPad is able to read it? Why not just download it as it is to read? And if a pdf is not being converted, why is it taking 1.5Gb of storage for a book that is only 38Mb in size to download? I don’t know if this is a fault on playbooks app side or apple side! Either way it is ridiculous and I hope it gets addressed somehow.

    By iBayern1
    Update 5.0.3 fixed my problem with misplacing highlights. Hope it also works in future updates.
  • Leave my app alone!!!

    By 1priiincessp
    What do you geniuses assume will happen by leaving negative reviews in the App Store instead of emailing the developers!?!? DELETED FROM THE APP STORE LIKE THE OTHER APPS!!!! Some of us used real money to buy our books. Please stop being lazy and contact Google instead about your issues! Smh
  • Good but slow

    By Drew_43
    Th concept of being able to the read the book is great but when it comes to highlighting and clicking on words the system is very slow. I’m using on an iPad Pro that has all updates so not sure why the app is so slow and lags when you click it highlight words.
  • Use to love now I hate

    By BookNerd69
    Worked wonderfully. Got an Apple phone. Worked well until last update now keeps crashing or will just open and not let you use. I buy books on this and now I cannot read them. Complete letdown. Hate it. Do not use it.
  • Won’t respond

    By ariaalvrz
    The app is completely frozen. I’ve closed it out multiple times and turned off my phone but it still won’t respond.
  • 3D page turn does not work on comic books

    By jvass407
    While the app offers 3D page turn animations for books and PDFs, the app does not seem to support feature for comic books like the Android version. It’s my favorite feature and I wish it was supported. Until then, I just can’t give it five stars.
  • Completely frozen

    By The essence of awesome
    I have this app on my iPhone cause I used to have a Samsung and I didn’t want to lose my books. Now I can’t even read any of them. I go into the app and it’s completely frozen. I waited for a while to see if it would pass, I closed the app and opened it up again several times, I even restarted my phone but none of it worked. Please fix it cause it’s really annoying
