Customer Reviews of the Bookshout App

Since you incessantly bug me to review the app

Thescatterling's Review of Bookshout

I dislike this app intensely. 1.) It incessantly bugs you to review it. 2.) The developers constantly send you useless emails. 3.) It constantly highlights things when I’m merely trying to turn a page. 4.) When you close the app it’s incapable of reopening at the same book and page that you were last reading. 5.) I don’t care what “book bucks” are and I wish the developers would stop pimping them to me. In short, this app is intrusive and seemingly incapable of simply shutting up and being a book reader. Note to the developers: When you incessantly bug someone to review your app should be careful. You might get your wish.

BookShout falls short

Not easy to use. Of all the books I read only one is marked read. Not easy to decipher reading status. Also, I download books to read when I am traveling, but when I try to read on a plane it tells me I need internet access. Very frustrating.

Battery Killer / Leaves device unsecured.

I’ve been using this app for a few months and it is a serious battery killer! If the app isn’t completely closed, it will drain you battery. The problem: the app will not allow your iPad to shut off. The app stays open and keeps your device open as well. Leaving your device unlocked and insecure while killing your battery. This is a serious security issue. Please fix this.

Reviewed on 8/31/19 1:40 PM

I am only using this because I order a lot of books from Harlequin. I usually buy up to five at a time when I purchase. I like some of the user friendly options of the new app BUT I hate that I can’t tell which books are still new and unread. In my old app that they used it clearly stated at the top of the book that it was “new” which meant unread. This is frustrating.

Confusing to place orders, books wont open

Frustrating to order from one site, then have to log in and open books in this app, especially when the books then won’t even open. Who to complain to???

I just finished reading this book. It was a quick read. Although I had predicted some of the narrative early on, the suspense and humour in the writing kept me reading... I read several books on e-readers. Usually on Overdrive app (tied to local libraries). I prefer their app because once books are open, can still tell time and notifications of how many pages remain in a chapter....

Amazing and Life Changing!

I am so enjoying BookShout! What an easy way to do what I love, reading on the go! It is so much more convenient to read on the go. Love this app!

Worst book app I’ve used

THEriksen's Review of Bookshout

Reviewed on 8/31/19 1:40 PM

I don’t understand why Harlequin switched to this eReader app. I’m beginning to dread when my monthly subscription books get added to my account. I’ve tried to give it a chance, but it is the worst eReader app I’ve used. I read 4-5 books each week. I’ve come to actually dread the beginning of each month when my subscription books are loaded. Issues I have 1. You cannot create shelves in BookShout. 2. You cannot hide archived books from your bookshelf. This makes it difficult to identify the new books that were loaded. 3. You cannot easily identify new books on your bookshelf. (See above.) 4. You cannot download a book without also opening it. 5. The action to turn pages is very touchy. Many times I end up highlighting text instead of turning the page. I don’t know what test market you used to evaluate the app before you switched, but you missed the mark with this one!

Doesn’t work with voiceover

EPIC FAIL! In this day and age EVERY app is especially a reading app should work with Apple’s voiceover. The Kindle app is flawless. Turn on voiceover, swipe two fingers down and it reads continuously until you shut it off. BookShout requires you to click on every paragraph... something that’s not only tedious, but rather difficult for the sight impaired. For that reason, this app gets one star. It’s completely unacceptable.
